The Rise and Fall of the National Organization for Marriage

NOM recruits Catholic Bishops to promote planned ‘Marriage March’

February 21, 2013, by Jeremy Hooper

NOM is a Catholic organization—that is not news.  But now there is growing evidence that NOM's planned march at the Supreme Court on March 26, which is already sponsored by fellow Catholic organizations like Catholic Vote and the American Principles Project, will be largely driven by this one particular faith position. 

Check out the following letter in which the Archbishop of Philadelphia tells parishioners that they should show up in DC and march against *CIVIL* marriage rights, even if the march does fall during one of the holiest times on the church calendar:


If NOM has reached out and recruited this one Archbishop, it's safe to assume that NOM has done the same with many others.  This, the positioning of the Supreme Court march as some sort of church obligation, is likely what is banking on for march turnout.  

It makes me sad for the church and its dedicated.  And I'm not even Catholic.
