NOM is Using its Money to Prevent Marriage Equality in NY

According to CBS, the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) have established a political action committee in New York to fight against any attempt at legalizing gay marriage.

NOM’s Executive Director Brian Brown stated the first $500,000 raised by the organization will go to financially back primary challengers to GOP Senators that vote for marriage equality.  And,

“The first half million dollars will be used in GOP primaries, but we are also looking to aid Democratic candidates who want to buck the establishment on the marriage issue, and to help in general election contests.”

Now, why can’t they use that money to actually do something that is good for the nation?  How many people could we feed or house with these funds?  Just something to think about I guess…

  1. There is a story in the Bible about some people talking about who was married to who after the Resurrection.

    23That same day the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him with a question. 24″Teacher,” they said, “Moses told us that if a man dies without having children, his brother must marry the widow and have children for him. 25Now there were seven brothers among us. The first one married and died, and since he had no children, he left his wife to his brother. 26The same thing happened to the second and third brother, right on down to the seventh. 27Finally, the woman died. 28Now then, at the resurrection, whose wife will she be of the seven, since all of them were married to her?”

    29Jesus replied, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. 30At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.

    What are we who support marriage in any form supposed to do with this?

  2. Mr. Sewell: Bravo! You are absolutely correct in saying that homosexuals have the same rights as everyone else; all they need to do is marry someone of the opposite sex! Likewise, I believe that the black civil rights movement was a joke. If those blacks in the 1950s wanted to use a white man’s drinking fountain, all they had to do was strip the skin from their bodies and graft on a suitably white substitute!

  4. You obviously didn’t read the link that I sent you. Homosexuals have the same rights as everyone else – the right to marry a person of the opposite sex. I understand that this response may not be satisfactory to some, but it’s completely legitimate, nonetheless.

    • First, of course gay rights are civil rights, and civil rights have everything to do with equality. But, by all means, do not take my word for it, many prominent political figures believe gay rights are both civil rights and human rights. If you don’t believe me, maybe you would believe Julian Bond (Chairman of the NAACP) or trust an article published in Time Magazine?

      Now, are you kidding me? Homosexuals lack the right to marry the one they truly love, which is the purpose of marriage. We do not care that we have to right to marry someone of the opposite sex when we were born with an attraction to the same sex. That right is useless to us.

      To put your argument into perspective, think of it this way:
      Let’s say only same-sex marriages were legal…would you be content if you wished to marry someone of the opposite sex and society told you, ‘oh well, you have the same rights as everyone else, you can marry someone of the same sex’…would you be content with that? I do not think so!

    • How to respond to this? Are you kidding me?

      Of course gay marriage is about rights…the 1138 federal rights that heterosexual couples receive but are denied to same-sex couples. DOMA discriminates because it wrongfully prevents gay individuals from having their unions legally recognized and the rights to make medical decisions, file joint tax returns, etc is also discriminatory. It treats homosexuals as second-class citizens, which is deeply flawed.

      Your assertion is simply incorrect.

    • Ha! The link you posted is laughable at best. The fight to be treated as everyone else in society is most certainly about ‘equality’, and to say differently merely shows your ignorance about the definition of the word. The government doesn’t need to ENDORSE gay marriage, no one is asking for members of the government to personally approve their relationship.

      It’s about being offered the same thing as everybody else is. The legal opportunity to commit to your partner long-term. We’re talking about hospital bedside visitation, health care benefits, etc.

      Unfortunately, the stringent heterosexual view of homosexuality always seems to fall back to your argument. “Gays want to get married to be accepted by society.” This implies that anyone who is gay needs the approval of society to be comfortable in their lifestyle, and they don’t. YOU don’t approve of a homosexual lifestyle, so it is immediately projected onto any gay person that they must think themselves as monsters too, and it’s simply not so.

      Stating that gays want equality not for equality’s sake, but for acceptance, is the real ‘pure propaganda’ mentioned in your link.

      The fact of the matter is, it isn’t my business what other people do. It’s not my business who anyone should date, screw, or marry. Children aren’t in any danger because of gay marriage, and no heterosexual marriage is devalued because of gay marriage either. Unless YOU yourself devalue it. If you think less of marriage because gay people can marry, that’s your issue.
