Just How Empty Is NOM’s Promise to Fight D.C. Over Marriage?


Reacting faster than most Gay Inc. groups, the National Organization for Marriage is already spitfiring after D.C.’s marriage vote. Maggie Gallagher & Co. are promising, via Twitter, to take down Councilman David Catania’s radical homosexual activist agenda.

“The people of D.C. have a right, guaranteed by the charter, which is D.C.’s constitution, to vote to protect marriage. Politicians on the city council are acting as if they have the right through legislation to deprive citizens of D.C. of their core civil right to vote, but we will not let them get away with it,” says NOM exec director Brian Brown in a statement. “We have one message for David Catania and the rest of these politicians today: this fight is not over. We will go to Congress, we will go to the courts, we will fight for the people’s right to vote and we will win!”

To be fair to Mr. Brown, if he does get Congress to intervene, it will be pretty freakin’ remarkable, because it’s only happened three times in the past 25 years.
