    Thats the dirty little secret of the Anti-Gay movement.

    The Mormon Church is the main funder of NOM, because individuals aren’t donating enough to support groups like them or Focus on the Family.

    Even with DADT being repealed they can’t scare up enough in donations to even pay their staff salaries.

    It just doesn’t pay to hate anymore.

    Finally some karma for these bigoted assholes.They have the blood of so many innocent teenagers kids and adults on their hands.

  • Sami

    Just how many people does Focus on the Family employ? How large is that hate group?

  • TMikel

    However many people FOF employs, this is a significant number of lay offs and every person laid odd, is one less being paid to spread lies about the LGBT community. In other words, this is a good thing. Perhaps we will live to see the day this hate group is gone for good!

    Now on to NOM. Get their donor list, expose it and see how the funds dry up. That’s the only thing they’re scared of and the reason why they’re trying to get their appeals heard. They claim they’re only protecting the security of their donors for course, utter b.s.

    By my count, that’s about 450 employees laid off. WTF do these people do? I think the World Bank has fewere employees!
