    Fear not, this man has a plan to stop same-sex marriage

    Mr Brown’s five-point plan is:

    Step 1. Elect a homophobic President
    No, really – NOM’s top one priority is to “Elect a pro-marriage President of the United States in 2016″.

    There’s no lack of choice among the Republican candidates – from Rick Santorum to Mike Huckabee to Ted Cruz – so the group will struggle to find just one homophobe to back.

    Step 2. Make sure the Republican Party is dominated by anti-gay politicians

    While some senior Republican figures are signalling they have given up their opposition to same-sex marriage entirely, NOM’s plan is to try and polarise politics further and try to stay relevant.

    The group says it will “hold the Republican Party and its representatives accountable to the American people when it comes to marriage.”

    Step 3. Pass a law through Congress allowing anti-LGBT discrimination

    We’re not exactly sure how this fits into the plan at all, really, but NOM wants the Republicans to pass the “First Amendment Defense Act” – that would allow religious people to discriminate against LGBT people without fear of repercussion.

    It says it will “ensure Congress and state Legislatures move swiftly to pass the First Amendment Defense Act to prevent any government agency from discriminating against people or institutions that believe that marriage is a union between one man and one woman.”

    Step 4. ???

    Okay, we’re not sure what this one actually means. NOM’s roadmap says that step four is to “Build and strengthen a grassroots movement that is pro-marriage”.

    You mean this entire time they haven’t been ‘building a movement’? And are just thinking about doing this now?

    Step 5. Amend the Constitution to void all same-sex weddings
    Using its new super-homphobic President and super-homophobic Congress, NOM will use its new-found control of two branches of government to overrule the Supreme Court, by amending the Constitution.

    Quite how they plan to get a two-thirds majority in both the House and the Senate is left to your imagination – but step five is to “support actions to amend the Constitution to repeal this illegitimate decision by a bare majority of justices”.
    And that’s it.

    Is NOM a not-for-profit, that is tax exempt? If so, they are barred from direct political activity. How can they be legally doing these overt political actions?

    "NOM seeks to fill that void, organizing as a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization, giving it the flexibility to lobby and support marriage initiatives across the nation.

    Consistent with its 501(c)(4) nonprofit status, NOM works to develop political messaging, build its national grassroots email database of voters, and provide political intelligence and donor infrastructure on the state level, with a focus on developing new strategies for increasing influence in the Northeast and West Coast, where marriage is most under threat."

    This narrow minded bible thumping screwball, Brian Brown can keep on dreaming and living in his ultra right fantasyland. The U.S. is a secular, democratic republic that is free for all groups of people and where discrimination of any type is strongly frowned upon. If these tea partiers don't like it than they can just pack their bags and get out of the U.S. They can move to Jamaica, Iran, Russia, Uganda, Saudi Arabia, and to the Giant Tea Party State of Texas that is when we successfully boot Texas out of the Union forever.

    Cutting the treasonous, unAmerican State of Texas from the Union is one of the few areas upon which you & I agree. And in my ideal scenario promptly followed by Mexico successfully reclaiming their former land (where do you think the word "Texas" [tay-has] comes from?). The irony of then blocking Texans from fleeing to the US because they've become illegal aliens themselves would be delicious.

    And I wouldn't worry about the US economy. Texas would still have to maintain trade with us, and when Mexico took over they're already a major US trading partner. I love the thought of Spanish becoming the official Texas language, and being mandatorily taught in school. icon_biggrin.gif

    This is a really good way to put it, honestly.

    You and Herr Zimmermann have a lot in common. Unfortunately, you're about 98 years too late. I'd be surprised that any other former military officer would make such treasonous, anti-American statements, but you're not any other former military officer now, are you.

    "America: Love it or leave it" makes no more sense now than it did in the '60s.

    During the height of the civil rights movement there were many who cited religious beliefs to justify opposition to racial integration and later inter-racial marriage. I hope, and want to believe, that the new efforts to legalize anti-LGBT discrimination based on "religious objections" will be no more successful than they were in the 1960's.

    Poor Brian, soon to be thrown onto the job market now that hate doesn't pay as much. It'll be tough for him - the rest of us got real jobs and did real work from high-school on.

    There doesn't seem to be much of a future for NOM's Bryan Brown or Maggie Gallagher. Apparently, NOM's early support came largely from the Mormon Church and the Knights of Columbus. NOM still hasn't complied with court orders to reveal the source of its funding.

    Based on the large size of NOM's current debt, those sources of money seem to have dried up. Of course, the Mormon Church has its own stable of in-house, otherwise unemployable professional bigots to support, including Gene Schaerr, Lynn Wardle, and Monte Stewart. The Mormon Church also pays salaries for NOM's Orson Scott Card at a church owned college in Virginia, and NOM's Catholic board member Robert P. George at the Mormon Church owned newspaper, the Deseret News. Who knows how much longer the Mormon Church will continue to pay these salaries?
