WTF – National Organization for Marriage: Gays Were Never Hunted Down and Murdered Like Jews, Christians, and Blacks!

The gorgeous people at HuffingtonPost today posted the below fabulous article about NOM, and how well, us gay folks have never been hunted down and murdered, unlike Jews, Christians, and Blacks. The subject matter is shocking enough, whats even surreal is myself and members of Freedom Fighters for Equality witnessed it all get posted, and even better, we have the actual screen shots!
James W Preece, Administrator for NOM, made the below startling and shocking claims: (read from the bottom up)
What’s up with the National Organization for Marriage (NOM)?
Not too many people are noticing this, but that organization, started to supposedly “protect marriage” from us so-called evil LGBTs, seems to be going off the deep end in terms of rhetoric.
When it began, NOM cleverly played up the “we are unfairly being called bigots because we simply want to protect marriage” meme. And that was because of the savvy of its founder, Maggie Gallagher.
But now with Gallagher handing the reins of the group to Brian Brown, the organization has abandoned all pretenses of martyrdom and is headed straight for crazy-talk territory.
This was evident when it joined forces in its “Summer for Marriage” tour with one Louis J. Marinelli III, a man who not only cites the discredited work of Paul Cameron, but is also very vocal in the belief that gays want to cause all sorts of mischief from molesting children to creating polygamous relationships.
(Gays and lesbians) are not being repressed, discriminated against. There is no and never has ever been a homosexual man hunt for them. Jews, Christians, and Blacks were hunted down and murdered. Homosexuals have nothing in common with the three.
Now I could go into a history of the persecution of the LGBT community in places like Nazi Germany or talk about Sakia Gunn, Michael Sandy, or even Matthew Shepard (whose murder was not soley about a robbery no matter what the right says), or the countless number of LGBTs who have lost their lives due to hate but what’s the point?
Sometimes people say things so wildly inaccurate that any comment you want to make is unnecessary.
The statement by NOM is beyond the pale and it further proves what many LGBTs know about that group. NOM is not interested in defending marriage. It’s only interested in bashing LGBTs, but not by physical attacks.
NOM seeks to psychologically bash us.
First the organization tells us that we are not worthy of marriage; that we have no ability to love and raise children; that we are undeserving of anything except for what folks like them feel that they want to give us.
And now with that statement, NOM seeks to rewrite history in a way that eliminates our past struggles for equality in the same manner that the group is also trying to eliminate our potential future happiness.
I think a question by web site Box Turtle Bulletin about the statement on NOM’s facebook page says it all:
Are they completely delusional?
Sadly, I think the answer is yes.
But wait! There’s more!
The National Organization for Marriage has responded to the HuffPost article:
“The Huffington Post on Wednesday falsely attributed statements to the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) about discrimination faced by gays and lesbians. The statements were apparently posted by an unnamed “administrator” of the “Protect Marriage: 1 Man 1 Woman” Facebook account. Huffington Post falsely claims that this is NOM’s Facebook page. The Facebook account on which these statements were reportedly made is not NOM’s Facebook page and neither NOM nor anyone representing NOM made these statements. The Facebook account in question is operated by a private party and NOM does not control what is allowed to be posted on the account, a fact that could have been easily known to Huffington Post had they reached out to NOM to verify the report.
But NOM’s explanation is seriously misleading.
And one more thing about Marinelli – he is not only participating in NOM’s “Summer for Marriage” Tour, but he is also (wait for it) driving the RV that NOM is using in the tour. We know this because he is so generously giving everyone updates on how the “tour” is going.
So the question here is who are you going to believe? The National Organization for Marriage or your own eyes?
Oh NOM, you’re not having a very good year are you dahlings?
You’ve lost multiple court cases, and heres another one to add to your collection.
The Washington DC Court of Appeals ruled 5-4 this morning to reject a bid to put marriage equality to a public vote. The Human Rights Campaign reports via press release:
“The court’s ruling today is a significant victory for justice, the rule of law and the protection of all D.C. residents against discrimination,” said Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese. “It’s time for the National Organization for Marriage to realize equality is here to stay no matter how much money they want to throw at turning back the clock.” In its decision, the Court of Appeals, D.C.’s highest court, decided 5-4 that the Council properly exercised its authority under the D.C. Charter in establishing the requirement that a proposed initiative may not authorize, or have the effect of authorizing, discrimination prohibited by the D.C. Human Rights Act.
The Court ruled unanimously that the proposed initiative would in fact impermissibly permit discrimination against gays and lesbians in the District. “The D.C. Council made a wise decision decades ago that no initiative should be permitted to strip away any individual’s civil rights. The Court unanimously found that the proposed anti-marriage initiative would have the effect of causing discrimination, and in doing so, stood up for the entire D.C. community,” said Solmonese.
The HRC notes that while Maryland-based Bishop Harry Jackson (above) is the person most connected with the bid to overturn gay marriage in DC, the driving forces behind the now-failed initiative were the Alliance Defense Fund and NOM. Another win for the good guys today and a big FAIL buzzer for Bishop Harry!

Before I forget, Maggie Gallagher, President of The National Organization For Marriage, you…you nasty whore, can suck my dick.
Happy Christmas readers!
Chase Community Giving, a Facebook-centered initiative that allows users to vote on how JP Morgan Chase should disburse $5 million to nonprofits, lists the National Organization for Marriage’s Education Fund among some 650,000-and-counting eligible groups in the contest, as first reported by Queerty.
But a Chase spokesman asserted late Thursday that the antigay group headed by Maggie Gallagher is not eligible for charitable funds — even if it garnered sufficient votes — because it violates the contest’s nondiscrimination rules. The database of groups was generated by GuideStar, a third-party firm that provides research on nonprofit groups.
“Organizations that receive votes from the guidestar database will be reviewed to make sure that they’re in the compliance with all of our guidelines,” Joe Evangelisti, head of media relations for JP Morgan Chase, told The Advocate.
According to NOM’s website, its education fund “represents another aspect of NOM’s overall effort to protect marriage, engaged solely in pro-marriage education and research, making information resources available to clergy, scholars, political leaders, and activists across the country.”
Just in time to kick-off of the holiday shopping season, HRC is releasing our annual buyers guide that rates hundreds of popular American brands on their businesses’ treatment of LGBT employees. “Buying for Equality 2010” divides businesses and their consumer products into red, yellow and green categories based on their score on the HRC Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index, a nationally recognized benchmark of LGBT inclusion. The guide — previous versions of which have been viewed and downloaded more than 300,000 times — is available for download and viewing online at www.hrc.org/buyersguide.
The LGBT community is estimated to have $712 billion in buying power this year, according to research by Witeck-Combs Communications and MarketResearch.com. A recent study by Witeck-Combs/Harris Interactive also found that 78 percent of LGBT people are extremely or very likely to consider brands that are known to provide equal workplace benefits for their employees, including LGBT workers.
Said Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese:
“Congress is currently considering the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, a critical piece of workplace legislation that will include our community. Until all LGBT Americans get fair treatment in the workplace, we must support businesses that support us. By purchasing products from businesses that support LGBT equality, shoppers send a clear message to businesses that their support, or lack thereof, will directly impact their bottom line.”
“From determining which car to purchase, to the right holiday gift for the kids, to everyday grocery shopping, this guide harnesses the power of equality-minded shoppers. At this moment it’s critically important that businesses hear that their customers support businesses that support us,” said Solmonese.
Fair-minded consumers are also encouraged to write to businesses to either thank them for their support, ask them revise their policies, or encourage them to participate in the Corporate Equality Index. More information can be found at www.hrc.org/consumeradvocacy.

She must of being fired by now yeah? I mean, you can’t represent a truthful god fearing organization like the National Organization Against For Marriage while making sex tapes and expect to be employed still?
We’ve just received a press release from Californians Against Hate’s Fred Karger, hypothesizing that the National Organization Against For Marriage has fired it’s dazzling beauty queen, the embodiment of virtue herself, Carrie Prejean. From the press release:
Dear Maggie –
It looks like you fired former Miss California, Carrie Prejean, just like Donald Trump did back in June.
She is no longer on your web site: nationformarriage.org I called your Washington, DC – PR firm, Mary Beth Hutchins at 703-683-5004 ext. 105, but no one was there to tell me why. What happened to *”the future of our movement, and the future of America,” as you referred to Carrie just two months ago?
Was it because she lied again? This time she said in numerous interviews that she “made only one sex tape.” Now it appears to be more like 15 or 20. We just heard that from the guy she met on My Space.
He also said that Carrie asked him to lie and say that she was only 17 when she made the sex tapes. In an interview with TMZ’s Harvey Levin, her ex said that she made the tapes when she was from 19 to 21, so not that long ago like Carrie insists.
Why did you take her off your web site? Did you hear from a lot of your high powered Board of Directors on this? What about your likely creator and largest backer, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church)? They gotta be uncomfortable with the whole multiple sex tapes thing. You sure changed your tune, Maggie.
What do you think the chances are that NOM/Maggie will speak publicly on Carrie now?
It would appear that the National Organization Marriage’s spokesh0r isn’t too happy discussing “her lil solo sex tape”
Carrie Prejean threatened to walk off Larry King Live Tuesday night, in the middle of her interview with Larry King.
Prejean’s threats came after King asked the former beauty queen about the reasons behind her recent settlement with the Miss California USA pageant. King asked Prejean why she agreed to strike a deal with the Pageant and drop her claims of libel, slander and religious discrimination. “Why settle since you had a fight to carry on?” King pressed.
Prejean demurred. King asked again: “You can’t even say why you settled?”
Prejean, visibly displeased, refused to answer: “Larry, it’s completely confidential and you’re being inappropriate.” The inappropriate issue at hand isn’t King’s probing question, but the alleged reason why Prejean settled: TMZ reported that she decided to strike a deal only after the lawyer for the Pageant revealed a home-made sex tape of a 17-year-old Prejean. King: “So the agreement discusses the motive behind why each party agreed?” Prejean: “Larry you’re being inappropriate. You really are. So, I’m not going to talk about –” (This back and forth goes on for a full minute.) Finally, King concedes: “Okay, I, uh… inappropriate King Live continues.” He drops the subject and goes to a caller.
But the damage is done: before the person on the phone line is halfway through his introduction (“I’m a gay man and I love pageants”), Prejean reaches to disconnect her mic and mouths something to someone off camera. “Did she hear the question?” King wonders.

Today is a most glorious day, for it has been revealed that the conservative values preaching former Miss California Carrie Prejean has dropped her lawsuit against the Miss California USA organization because an graphic sex tape of her has allegedly surfaced. Hallelujah.
“They showed her the X-Rated version of Home Alone, starring Carrie herself.
“When the video started playing, Carrie’s first reaction was ‘that’s disgusting’ and Carrie denied it was her.
“Then, the camera angle changed and panned up to her face. She was caught red-handed, so to speak.
“Carrie was rendered speechless and immediately began talking with her lawyer. We’re told it took about 15 seconds for Carrie to drop her $1 million demand.”
It was bound to happen: Every idiot who wants to be famous knows a sex tape can help take a pseudo-celebrity’s D-list status up a couple of notches.
Groups like the National Organization for Marriage defended Prejean when scandalous photos surfaced. I wonder if Maggie Gallagher, president of NOM, and other conservative leaders will come to her rescue now. Family values indeed.
Would would Jesus say?
Last night before I went to bed, we were in the Lead, I had a smile on my face, I was positive, I had a great feeling about Gay Marriage in Maine…
Fast forward 7 hours later to my boyfriend waking me up saying “Babe, I’m so sorry”.
Seriously, this is like Prop 8 all over again, however…
We lost in Maine but I don’t view it as a total defeat. I know that we have a reason to be angry. The opposition lied, they stooped to underhanded tactics. They used the time honored false implication of “OMG!! the gays are after America’s children.”
But in 2004, we lost a multitude of anti-gay marriage votes by double digits and the momentum was totally against us. Last night, while we did not get all that we wanted in Maine, it was very close. In these votes over marriage equality, the opposition may have crossed the finishing line before we did 31 times but every time we get just a little closer. And let’s not forget that we won in basic non-discrimination rights in Kalamazoo (despite the lies about the transgendered community and bathrooms) and continue to hold the lead in Washington state, which expands the rights of same-sex couples. Not to mention that we now have an openly gay mayor in Chapel Hill, NC. Alvin McEwen.
So I’m truly sorry for the folks who feel that last night was a total loss, who feel that last night is another excuse to sit in front of their computers, engage in pity parties, bring up fond memories of past street protests, or go so far as to make ignorant comments about the physical features of the opponents of equality. Because I refuse to view last night as a loss. Any time that we can stand up and fight and educate people about our rights is never a loss. A good fight was fought by many people and instead of contemplating about what we didn’t get, why don’t we take time out of our day to commend those who devoted time and effort to the cause, the campaign workers, the volunteers, the bloggers – everyone who worked their tail off in pursuit of our equality deserve our praise and our thanks instead of the self-cannibalization that’s sure to come. They deserve a big thank you instead of “see, I told you so,” or “if I had run the campaign, I would have . . .”
So what do we do now that this election is over? We continue to work for our rights and not just the right of marriage equality.
Despite the tendency of our opponents to make grand prognostications, our spirits may be diminished just a little but our backs aren’t broken. The round may have been lost, but the fight isn’t over yet. View last night as a teaching lesson. Lgbts gaining full equality, including marriage equality, will probably be at times slow and tedious, tiring and time consuming.
There is no place for slackers or armchair warriors or those who get easily tired and discouraged.
If lgbt equality is to be achieved, it’s going to have to be via sweat and toil. There is no other choice. There is no other alternative. There will be no deux ex machina descending from the sky making everything right. There will be no addendums or loopholes. It’s a job that will have to accomplished the hard way because there is no other way.
Don’t get mad, get even.
