The National Organization for Marriage appears to be entering into panic mode. Back when Maggie Gallagher ran the show, there was at least some semblance of intellectual discourse, even if it was often a pack of lies coming out of NOM. Now, it’s just fear mongering.
Brian Brown recently wrote:
“I need to update you with some distressing news. As I write this update from Tampa, in preparation for the 2012 GOP convention, it appears our fight to defend marriage this fall will be even tougher than we anticipated…Bottom line: if people of faith don’t immediately stand up to match the homosexual lobby’s money, gay “marriage” will be imposed as the law of the land for all of us. We can win this fight but not unless Christians and marriage supporters step up their contributions right now.
So please read my email below to support our action plan with an immediate contribution. I’m counting on your urgently needed support as this fight is bigger than even we originally thought.
Um…so, if same-sex marriage is passed, straight people are going to be forced into gay marriages? That seems to be what Brown is saying. Brown recently had a bunch of vacuous (on his part) debates with Dan Savage about same-sex marriage. Brown and his buddies had to pay for a misleading study that has gotten their pet researcher into some serious trouble with his University as well.
Brown and company know that their arguments for marriage inequality are on shaky ground. They do not have any legitimate data that backs up their position, and they are terrified that their cash cow is about to be headed for a few hundred pounds of ground beef.
