for the longest time the so-called National Organization for Marriage has pretended as if they are “a multi-faith, broad coalition arguing on the basis of good policy and the common good.” But the recent update to their Facebook page reveals that they actually see gay couples as outside of “God’s plan.” For a group that has long stood by pseudo-scientific junk-sociology to “prove” that kids “do better” with heterosexual parents, it’s nice they’re finally admitting that religion is what actually fuels their arguments.
In other good news, NOM’s June 24 to September 1st campaign to raise $100,000 for 100,000 combined $1 Facebook “likes” and Twitter followers has only raised $598. Seems that failure is part of God’s intent for NOM as well. The Lord works in mysterious ways, doesn’t she?
If you have issues with gay marriage then dont marry one. Whoopi Goldberg
And again, just to remind everybody…
Remember, The Mormon Church appears to have created the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) in the summer of 2007 to qualify California’s Proposition 8 for the November 2008 ballot. They set it up as a Mormon front group, exactly as they did with a very similar organization called Hawaii’s Future Today (HFT) in that state in 1995. HFT was established to pass a constitutional amendment in Hawaii to ban same-sex marriage.
Californians against Hate created this website to detail this as well as showing that most of NOM’s board members are high ranking Mormons or have significant family ties to high ranking Mormons
Maggie Gallagher has a son named Patrick. Patrick is involved in NY’s “musical theatre” community.
Now, Maggie raised him as a single mother. She was not married when she gave birth to him, or became pregnant with him.
What we are seeing is Maggie’s version of “Atonement” – she was an open-legged cockfiend, got pregnant, raised a kid whom she knows is utterly gay (yet remains “not gay”) and has decided to “make it up to God” by making her Raison d’Etre anti-gay bigotry and decidedly anti-non-Christian bigotry too.
hating gay marriage won’t make it up to God for you having a child out of wedlock, you idiot.
God’s “intention” that marriage be between one man and one woman is hardly evident in the Bible.
Yahweh supposedly told Abraham to fuck his wife’s assistant if he wanted a kid. Yahweh’s beloved David had…what? Five wives, was it? Another of Yahweh’s personal favorites, Solomon, had hundreds of wives and concubines. Jesus thought so much of marriage he didn’t marry, but did live with 11 other guys who he ordered to abandon their own wives.
Christians are superstitious, gullible morons who can’t even be bothered to read their own fables.
gODD is and always has been gay.
Has anyone heard whether or not the Bummer has evolved yet?
its good to see that thier support is almost non existant , you think they would get a clue , and knock it of already …………..
Apropos of the grammar discussion around this site, is it noticed that NOM uses the wrong preposition? They keep saying they’re “for” marriage, when it turns out they are very much “against” it. They certainly don’t campaign against divorce and call for outlawing that, which sounds like support — and since the didn’t ask Newt to “pray away the divorce” and get remarried to his first wife again, or something. They seem utterly confused; perhaps it’s the men in the dresses behind their curtains which confuses them.
Meanwhile, Maggie’s God is a rather limited little thing, isn’t it? For it has yet to get rid of gay folks, as she apparently prays for it to do. Meanwhile, our God seems to be rather pleased with us, and keeps making us by the dozens, if not millions, by people just like Maggie, oddly enough. Really, her son is in musical theater? The irony. My God does want a word with her’s, for sure. Still, it’s fun watching these people flail and fail, one day at a time.
YOu make a very good point. I wish they were as eager to point out God’s plan when it doesn’t work out they way they want it.
How is it news that NOM thinks gay couples are “Outside of God’s plan”??? They are not “finally” admitting that they are religiously motivated- they have always held that they are a Christian based organization that strongly opposes the gay rights movement. Queerty seriously needs new journalists. This post is about the most pointless thing I’ve read on this blog in a long time. Which is saying a lot.
NOM’s blog used to delete comments that referred directly to the Bible or specific religions (Catholic, LDS, etc.) even if those comments supported NOM’s goals. (this would have been ~2 yrs ago)
A few more seem to be sliding past their ‘gatekeepers’ since about Mar. 2011, although we’ve not really kept a close tally of hits or misses.

I’m proud to say I am no longer allowed to post comments on NOM’s Facebook page. Apparently I used too much logic. NOM clearly stands for National Organization of Morons
@Jeff in NYC: Congratulations. All groups like that routinely block or censor your comments. Even Roseanne Barr can’t handle not being the center of attention and does the same thing on her blog.
