Anti-gay NOM pledges another $2 million to promote bigotry across New York state

Saturday, June 25, 2011

Following passage of the Marriage Equality Act in the New York state legislature on Friday, the anti-gay National Organization for Marriage (NOM) announced last night that it would commit another $2 million to spreading hate and bigotry across the Empire State.

The NOM said it would target four Republicans — Jim Alesi, Roy McDonald, Steve Saland, and Mark Grisanti– who provided the margin of passage.


The National Organization for Marriage’s (NOM) president, Brian Brown doubled his previous pledge, promising to commit “at least $2 million” in elections in 2012 to make sure Republicans understand that voting for gay marriage has consequences:

“The Republican party has torn up its contract with the voters who trusted them in order to facilitate Andrew Cuomo’s bid to be president of the U.S. Selling out your principles to get elected is wrong. Selling out your principles to get the other guy elected is just plain dumb.

[snip]

“We are not giving up, we will continue to fight to protect marriage in New York, as we are actively doing in New Hampshire and Iowa.”

“We were sold out by the Republican Party in New York,” whined Brown.

  15. I wish they’d pledge $20 million. What’s the matter? Don’t they believe in their holy cause? Aren’t they willing to go bankrupt for their beliefs? Pish tush! No sense of commitment.

  19. Oh geez, those bigots gotta to suck it up. If they don’t like it, then move elsewhere… probably middle east would be good place for them. It’s very sad to see that $2 million going waste and will not accomplish anything. That money would be much better spent helping other people with no food, shelter, etc. Imagine how many people will be helped with that money?

  23. I’m think people like this have their brain cells scrambled, they just can’t think like the rest of us do; about love and equality.

    Posted on Saturday, June 25, 2011 at 1:36pm
  24. yayyy 2 million dollars spent on fighting equality instead of going somewhere where it could save and improve lives of people in need! TRUE CHRISTIANS

    Posted on Saturday, June 25, 2011 at 1:37pm
  25. The bigotry will never win!! It has spent only 2 million….. Our love is invaluable, and our commitment and dedication to our freedom to love is priceless. They can never compete! Fyi…Brian Brown spends alot of money to keep his secret.

  26. What a wonderful use of $2 million… Hate spreading faster than HIV yay… F’n morons

    Posted on Saturday, June 25, 2011 at 1:42pm
  27. seems like all that money they are investing can be put to better use across the country for real humanitarian problems, like the floods, the homeless, the tornadoe victims, people who need health care, etc etc etc

  28. How else will they pay for the fake, dishonest, polls that they run.

  29. The Republicans who voted for marriage equality should be commended. Brian Brown should just shut the eff up. Enemies of equality have lost. They need to move on.

  30. TWO MILLION! Why not use that money to feed the endless amount of starving children around the globe instead of stupid crap like this

    Posted on Saturday, June 25, 2011 at 5:34pm
  31. Brian Brown always looks BADLY constipated! That $2Mil could be used to REALLY help marriage by being donated to a woman’s shelter, or maybe for research into why there is a 60% divorce rate among the Far Right…

  32. What does this teach their children about “spending” Very sad
