NOM Issues Year-End Money Beg To Facilitate New Anti-LGBT Laws And The “Likely Overturn Of Obergefell”

Via email from hate group leader Brian Brown:

We have only about 60 hours left in our $100,000 matching gift challenge, and I am very concerned that we are going to come up well short of our goal. As of this morning, we’ve raised $71,249, meaning that could lose out on $28,751. Please, don’t let us lose out on money we desperately need to take advantage of all the opportunities we have available to us. I’m asking you to make an urgently-needed donation today.

In just a few weeks, the Trump administration will take office, and that could very well mean a sea change in the environment in which we are working. Out will be Obama’s disastrous agenda that seeks to redefine gender and impose it in every public school. In will be new Supreme Court justices who will likely overturn the illegitimate Obergefell court decision redefining marriage.

Out will be government appointees who target conservative groups like NOM, and leak our confidential donor information to our opponents. In will be a President committed to signing the First Amendment Defense Act to protect supporters of marriage.

The opportunities before us are nothing short of a miracle. That is why it is absolutely essential that we have the funds available we need to capitalize on these opportunities.

The email includes thirteen links to NOM’s donation page.

  • Gustav2

    NOM has not been targeted, patted on the head maybe, but not targeted.

    • Silver Badger

      Perhaps they should be targeted in reality, protesters at their homes, their children bullied and their websites crashed. Just so they know what they’re talking about.

      • Mihangel apYrs

        not the children – they do that, we mustn’t

        • Silver Badger

          Depends on the kid. In my experience many of those kids need to be taught compassion. Their parents certainly aren’t doing it.

          • Mihangel apYrs

            you used the word “bullied”. Drop your pants and prepare to be . . . . “spanked”

          • Silver Badger

            And I meant “bullied”. I was banned from Rawstory because I got into an argument with someone who thought they had the right to inflect their kids on others and I will do it again in a heartbeat.

          • Mihangel apYrs

            one doesn’t bully children, for all the reasons you know. You educate them in the teeth of their parents’ disapproval, you discipline them as appropriate, and you warn them that when they work they won’t get so much latitude.

            But children are weaker than you, and just starting their lives; you don’t bully them

          • Silver Badger

            One does not bully children. I agree. Horse whip them perhaps. Encourage your own children to stand up to them with less than lethal force. You see, I don’t particularly like children, And don’t believe they should be allowed to inflict themselves on others.

        • canoebum
          • Mihangel apYrs

            “they do that”, meaning they bully children.

          • canoebum

            Sorry. I misunderstood you.

          • Mihangel apYrs

            no problem. mistakes happen

  • Paula

    The First Amendment Defense Act won’t be just for x-tians, asshole.

    • Gustav2

      Of course it will, Teavangelicals are the majority!

      • Paula

        The FSM will have other deeply held religious beliefs.

    • Todd20036

      They’ll make it so. And by the time SCOTUS hears it, ti will be the law of the land. Even if a majority of SCOTUS justices think it’s unconstitutional.

    • Goodboy

      Interesting seeing it’s supporters out there. Yeah, remind me how much better they are then the brown skinned religious fanatics of that other religion. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/610e14e12cced5ff5b49a19068be481e0fbc990a5d3632070659fe9a7a165635.jpg

      • Todd20036

        Wouldn’t it be great if they used such laws to prosecute straight people who had sex with no intent to procreate?

        • Goodboy

          Yeah, they’ll do that like they follow the bible. Ha.

          • JWC

            the bible is read differently by str8 people

      • JWC

        “Organized” religion is like “organized” crime a unified solid front that all believe and adhere to

    • clay

      Meanwhile, it’s congregations and denominations on the more liberal end that have seen an increase in attendance after the election.

  • CPT_Doom

    He does realize the whole Supreme Court isn’t replaced each term, right?

    • Todd20036

      He thinks a couple of liberal justices will just die and be replaced by Trumpanzees.

      • DaddyRay

        Sadly he may be right

        • Ninja0980

          Indeed, sad to say but I can see Trump being able to appoint 1-3 new justices when all is said and done.

          • Todd20036

            And none of them will be qualified to do the job.

          • Steverino

          RBG can have any of my internal organs that she needs to stay the hell alive.

    • fuow

      The odds are damn good we’ll lose a center or left of center Justice in the next four years.
      The mother-fucking christians are right to be jubilant and every gay man who didn’t vote – fuck you.

      • Todd20036

        Every gay man who didn’t vote for Clinton: Fuck you with a chain saw.

        You may have helped get camps put in the US.

        And yes that includes you, Perdue. How’s your fucking Chelsea Manning presidency now, fuckhead?

        Not to mention our “allies” and young people who seem to think the bigots won’t take away rights we’ve gained so it was okay to sit out or vote third party.
        Fuck all of them.

        • Todd20036

          They were born when the good guys were in power, and NO WAY could such rights be taken away.

          Marriage? Equality? Abortion?

          The only positive thing to the latter is a few trumpanzees will have to have back alley abortions as a result of their own votes.

          No sympathy. None.

          • Ragnar Lothbrok

            Something like 60 anti abortion measures were passed in the states in 2016. Ignoring Roe.

    Man. Anyone that obsessed with us is definitely hungering for gay sex. He really, REALLY hates himself.

    • JWC

    • JWC

      I find it strange that the LGBTQI community must have really made a dent in the Religious Rights Agenda , for them to spew such rabcor and venom and unmittigated hate Are they that affraid? One of the tenets of “organized religion” is love thy fellow man I guess Cherry pickingoverlooked that one

      • BearEyes

        afraid we’d do to them what they did to us.

        • JWC

          the problem is we don’t care They can do what they want just leave us alone Maybe its being ignored than gets them

          • Todd20036

            It’s wanting to get laid and seeing us fuck each other like rabbits without the guilt they have just from LOOKING at us, is what really gets turds like this.

          • JWC

            Oprah, On interviewing some Gay guest several years back mentioned the STR8’s view of Gay Sex as swinging naked fromma chandelier After a few moments she surmised that that was not so gay as it was more common among str8 people The gis was Str8 people have no clue but are lost in perception

          • Michael Abbett

            That is EXACTLY what gets them. If they can’t convince everyone else of their BS, because the KNOW it’s BS, then they can’t buy it themselves. They’re the most insecure people on the face of the earth.

    So, he thinks marriage equality will be overturned, he also underestimates the fury of a pissed off LGBT community.

    • Todd20036

      Only if our allies stand with us.

      If they back down and say, “Well, it’s just a few LBGTs”, then we will be on our own.

    • JWC

      I agree, to the point of revolt “Don’t make us put our purses down”

    • Butch

      The way I understand it – a state would have to enact a law banning same sex marriage that would then have to work its way through the appeals process all the way up to the Supreme Court, which would be a matter of years. I’m not sure, although I’ve been wrong before, that outside of a few southern states, a majority of Americans would be OK with seeing a right taken away once it’s granted, especially because it’s easy to show people that gay marriage has had no effect on their lives. I could be wrong.

  • JWC

    These people are practically peeing their pant waiting for 21 Jan so they can tear up anything with the word “GAY” on it What a dispicable deplorable hateful lot and OH they are religious bible thumpers as well

    And then we will bring back prayer in public schools, and girls will only be allowed to wear dresses and skirts to school, and all male students must be clean shaven and wear short hair and collared shirts, and no denim jeans, and for sure we will revive “duck-and-cover”, because that last one will be a necessity.

    Trust me, young ones, Trump and I are the same age. The stuff above is part of the “Great America” he remembers, that i would like to forget.

    • clay

      In one of his stump speeches, Trump implied he was going to make Sunday School mandatory. It didn’t show up again that I saw, and even his church audience seemed confused by what he was talking about. What happened? Did his parents tell him he had to follow certain rules as a 6 year old because it federal law, just so they didn’t look like the meanies?

      • Robert Adams

        Most people are unaware of the “Bible Wars” we had in this country. Property was destroyed and people died over the disagreement of which version of the Christian Bible should be used in public schools. You can look it up. Too bad our teaching of History is so lacking.

    Although nobody can ever take their rights for granted I do not believe marriage equality is at risk at least not in the near term.

    With public sentiment against rapidly melting away marriage equality is already the new norm and in another 3 or 4 years should have the backing of a solid majority.

    Historical studies have shown that the Supreme Court regularly follows vs. leads societal norms.

    Having said that we must never take our rights for granted and be prepared to fight to preserve marriage equality.

    • Rex

      Public sentiment should have kept Trump from winning, and look at how that turned out.

      Well, it also means that the $100,000 was the total of the seed and matching gifts. If his grammar is correct (not a guarantee, I know) the anonymous (to us) challenge donation was $50,000, the existing small donations are $21,249.

  • MonochromeMouse

    It’s so insane that people actually fall for the “matching donations” marketing BS.

    I expect that the Senate Democrats are intent on giving each and every one of Der Herr’s SCOTUS picks the Garland treatment until such time as he comes up with an actual moderate to fill the seat. Brian shouldn’t get his hopes up. The raving right-wingers have been trying to get Roe overturned since 1973.

    I don’t think it will be overturned. But if the nightmare scenario ever came to pass, we would drop down to 17 states. However, we would move swiftly to reclaim states in the next several election cycles. Within 4 years of an overturn, we likely would be up to 25 states. The existence of SSM for several years would make it feasible to get perhaps another 5 less liberal states, bringing us up to 30 states 8-10 years post overturn. Then it would be a slog to get the remaining 20. The battle would conclude around 2040, but we will still win.
