NOM Exposed is a campaign-style operation that tracks and challenges the anti-gay National Organization for Marriage as it tries to influence elections and legislative campaigns across the country.

Christopher Plante


The Floater

Cut his teeth fighting against marriage equality in Rhode Island.  Under his watch, the state first implemented civil unions and then, in 2013, full marriage equality.

After serving as executive director of NOM Rhode Island, Plante joined NOM's national team in 2011

The rest of Plante's bio, courtesy of GLAAD:

-- Says children of gay parents are in a "tragic situation" and equated having gay parents to having divorced or even dead parents (see second video down on webpage)

-- Says gay couples who adopt “turn children into little teacup dogs -- it's an accessory to put in my purse" (see video from 4:35-5:16)

-- Admit he wants gays to "come out of this distorted lifestyle"

-- Said bills that assist domestic partners in making funeral arrangements for their late loved ones “serve simply as ‘Trojan Horses’ for homosexual-marriage”

-- Says "homosexual marriage tells me I'm an option to my daughter, no different from a sun roof" (beginning at 1:03:00)

-- Says gays can "change" and so they don't deserve civil rights (beginning at 1:04:00

-- Says gays are trying to "hijack" bullying concerns in order to promote same-sex marriage; claims "the bullying thing is a red herring" (at 1:07:00)

-- Admits he is also against same-sex adoption; believes children of gays are always lacking (beginning at 13:45)

-- Accuses the media and shows like Modern Family of "brainwashing" Americans into supporting marriage equality
