NOM’s Complete Breakdown Is Just About Finished

john-eastmanThe screwups at NOM have crossed a threshold this week, from “annoying” to “pure craziness.”

Despite marriage equality having definitively won in Pennsylvania and Oregon, NOM seems to think that they can still pull out a victory in both states. There are a couple reasons this is absolutely insane, starting with the fact that they are not even parties in the cases.

But even if they were, it wouldn’t matter, because the cases are over. Done. Decided. We won, the end.

And even if the cases weren’t over, and even if NOM was somehow allowed to participate, it STILL wouldn’t matter, because they don’t have a case. In the last year, anti-gay groups haven’t won a single court case, and they’ve lost nearly 20. Even if NOM was able to bumble its way into court somehow, they wouldn’t have anything persuasive to say once they got there. They’ve run out of cover.

Look, we understand that it sucks to be on the losing side of something. It’s really no fun. It must be extra-painful to have gone from a national force to an irrelevant laughingstock over the course of just a few years.

And couldn’t have happened to a nicer bunch of people.

      It’s a lot more understandable if you recognize that NOM’s central purpose is bilking bigoted suckers out of their cash. Particularly those with deep pockets. So of course NOM won’t act like they’ve given up the fight– no matter how much it might clash with reality– until they’ve squeezed every single penny left to get from the rubes.

      @bobbyjoe: 100% Co-sign……….For decades these reprehensive hate orgs have padded the pockets of the oversized obese asses of the likes of Maggot Gallagher and fat ass Brian Brown. They constantly seek additional funds to “continue the fight” when basically everyone know acknowledges these reprehensive abhorrent vile scum have lost the battle to prevent equality………..

      Absolutely! They can’t keep paying their salaries unless they lie to their few supporters and claim that they can actually do something.

      @bobbyjoe: Agreed. The best reading this year is the ever-dwindling budget for NOM, and groups like it. Sadly, so many of those key financiers and political players moved to the Tea Party rather than just dying off.

      Once upon a time former NOM head Maggie Gallagher bragged about how “it was really fun to win.” For one time, I agree with her.

      This will lead, if not interrupted, to the downfall of America. The biggest travesty is that the so called “gay rights” masked as equality justifies people who do not hold executive or legislative power to make and execute social policy. The reasons for this are rampant cronyism in the shady judicial appointments, absolute absence of transparency, brazen disrespect to basic ethics and morality. Then people wonder why most people respond in surveys that America is headed in the wrong direction.

      @Harley:

      Marriage was designated in the society gradually as a social policy, not right, rights concern the individual, when it comes to more than one individual it is called social policy. The biggest contemporary charade of the liberal leftist discourse is to label something as “right” and then push it on that way. It is disingenuous strategy but for now works, but it won’t for a very long time.

      @anti-liberal: Unfortunately you fail to realize that the government of this country has found, throughout many many many many cases that do NOT have a single thing to do with us Gays, that marriage is a fundamental human right not to be infringed without a clear, concise legitimate governmental interest. So your argument fails there.
      You know though, you could move somewhere else that does allow your magic-fairytale-dogma to dictate the ethics and morality of its citizens.
      I think my most favorite part about all the opposition to positive Gay RIGHTS legislation is when your heads damn-near explode when it happens.
      I mean seriously, the “moral majority’s” obvious obsession with all things Gay is astonishing. You consistently voice objection to any and all Gay RIGHTS as an attack on religious freedom all while turning a blind eye to the fact that not a single soul in this land should be forced to live as you and your book prescribe. You cry about sharia law and all that other BS while attempting to write your biblical nonsense (my opinion hunty!) into our laws. Ridiculous. Darling, your hypocrisy is showing.

      Your beliefs, in which you are completely entitled to, cannot and will not govern how, when, where, why and with whom I live my life.

      IMO, the longer your belief system and its dictators stay in their incredibly antiquated past, the better. For you see, you’re loosing your numbers at an incredibly high rate, especially among younger generations of people, and the longer you retain your own status quo the quicker you will fall into obscurity, and quicker we all can live in peace.
      Hugs & Kisses.

      @Pitou:

      You begin with fundamental fallacy, marriage in not fundamental human right. Marriage is a social policy, designated throughout the time to serve a certain aim. It can be argued whether is it useful at all, but it is clearly designated as a social policy.
      You can do some research and find that sharia law in many places is real, not BS, you can also research how affects humanity (warning: if you have a frail nervous system, skip that).
      Today the dictatorship, the infringement in other people’s lives (especially financially), is coming from the liberal left. As for the younger generation support, it is normal, they always used to be liberal, that will change overtime. Don’t bet on conservatives going away. There is a saying “if you are young and you are not liberal you don’t have a heart, if you are old and you are liberal, you don’t have a brain”
