The Rise and Fall of the National Organization for Marriage

NOM seemingly moving forward with ‘Marriage Con Con’ sites

On July 5, I first discovered that the National Organization for Marriage had purchased a cache of web domain names that speak to a plan to launch some sort of constitutional convention around the issue of marriage equality.  Looking at it again, it seems that NOM is moving forward with these plans, with those yet-to-launch domains having been updated just two weeks ago:


It seems shocking to think that NOM might be pinning its hopes on a "con con" that seeks to completely alter our U.S. Constitution in a way that makes it more compliant to NOM's desires to discriminate.  But then again, what choice have they?  Their old moves aren't working, so a bold move might be in order.  What could be bolder (in the NOM view) than calling for a Second Constitutional Convention designed to deny certain citizens of rights?

This would also fit with NOM's announced plans to soon launch a new site.  Perhaps they aren't just planning to launch a spruced up version of their old home but rather a whole new endeavor that works toward a completely new purpose.  At this point, I wouldn't put anything past this floundering (and increasingly aggressive) organization.
