Brian Brown: Another SCOTUS Vacancy Is Coming And I Need Money To Make Sure The Nominee Is Anti-Gay

Via press release from hate group leader Brian Brown:

I wish I didn’t have to write you about this, but I don’t know who else to turn to for help. NOM is in the midst of a critically-important Matching Fund Drive that began on Monday. We need to raise $100,000 to avoid making drastic budget cuts, and we’re way behind.

Can you help with an immediate financial contribution? Whatever amount you can give will be doubled thanks to a matching gift from a generous donor. I have to be honest with you, right now we’re running very low on funds and are counting on the success of this Matching Fund Drive to give us a boost so that we can continue with all the critical programs we have underway.

Senator Charles Grassley, chairman of the US Senate Judiciary Committee, said yesterday that he expects there will be another vacancy on the Supreme Court as soon as this summer. Other sources have said the same thing in recent weeks.

That means that we need to be ready at a moment’s notice to spring into action to urge the appointment of a strong constitutionalist to the Court, someone who will have the courage to vote to reverse the illegitimate, anti-constitutional Obergefell ruling that redefined marriage.

That’s just one example of what’s at risk if we don’t have the funds to aggressively fight for our issues. We won’t be able to do everything possible to press President Trump to make the right appointment, or to influence the confirmation process of the nominee.

We won’t have the resources to fight all-out for legislation to protect the religious liberty rights of people of faith. We will have to cut back on our public education and grassroots mobilization efforts. And we’ll have to take a pass on participating in critical court cases on key issues including gender and religious liberty.

            My initial reasons seemed good at the time, but then I realized that they weren’t worth it.

      He only launched his match-funding drive on Monday, but he’s already “way behind” his $100,000 target?
      “NOM is in the midst of a critically-important Matching Fund Drive that
      began on Monday. We need to raise $100,000 to avoid making drastic

            So many stupid people to take advantage of, with the legal framework of religion to do so.

          • TampaDink

            So sad. So true. People who require ancient, made up stories to pretend to care about others & behave accordingly have given organized religion a black eye.

          • vorpal

            ‘I think many of them are seriously convinced that if they didn’t select from their big buffet book of bullshit, they would be wandering around the streets looting, rioting, and committing mass murders.

            LGBT people have been extraordinarily civil despite the crap we’ve had to put up with, mostly from the religious. Apart from Floyd Corkins II, I think the worst atrocity the Christians have had to endure through homosexuality is to smear some buttercream on a cake.

          • TampaDink

            This is so fucked up & yet so true for so many of the “faithful”. They are often so quick to justify criminal behavior in the name of their deities & as quick to point out everyone who has ever done the same or worse.
            Under the current regime, I expect that the F.R.C. massacre to be back in the headlines to justify erosion of our rights.

        She saw the writing on the wall and left Brown to sink on the NOM ship.

        • vorpal

          I completely agree. The Haggaher ran a tight ship, focusing on “traditional marriage” and not letting anything directly resembling anti-LGBT hate leak out: this is the reason that NOM was never labeled a hate group. She wisely jumped ship when she say donations drying up.

          Brian, on the other hand, is a freaking moron who makes it clear that he just despises gay people, and he is on a crash course with an iceberg, the idiot.

    Even if they cut Scalia’s rotting corpse into 9 pieces and appointed all of them to the court, they still need to find a state insane enough to actually pass a marriage repeal act.

      However for Brian’s problem, he clearly needs to suck on it, whatever “it” is. Maybe only a sour lemon, one after another.

If you haven’t hear the coqui, it is one of the loudest little things you can imagine.

          I got used to them in a week, and then when I moved to Chile and it was soooo quiet, I didn’t think I could ever sleep again.

            Oh weird… how did I not know about these?
            JMG… always educating me.

            They were considered such a nuisance on the eastern side of the Big Island of Hawaii that they sprayed the jungle with caffeine to try to kill them. I think it just made them more excited and loud, TBH.

            They eat tons of fire ants, which are considered one of the most annoying invasive species in Hawaii, so I don’t see the objection. The only annoying time is when one jumps on your windowsill and insists on serenading you up close and personal.

          • ColdCountry

            I had a peeper on my window screen one night. How can such a little creature make such a loud noise? But they are only vocal for about a month, and they are a certain sign of spring, so – as far as I’m concerned – they can make as much noise as they want. Hearing them always makes me smile.

          • vorpal

            Oh, seasons… how I don’t miss them at all!

            Here the sky is every day almost beautiful and blue, and the temp fluctuates from around 60 – 84 across the year.

          • ColdCountry

            Lol! I would miss the seasons. I love them all, though some last a bit longer than is necessary.

            Living in Canada for about 35 years gave me enough seasons for a lifetime.

            I don’t like what I consider “overly harsh” winters, but I do enjoy some winter, if only to look for the signs of coming spring. And fall is my favorite season.

            You wear it well, Senor Vorpal, my pal of Vor.
            Although my father was 6′-1″ & my brothers both about the same height, I topped out (pardon the use of “topped”) at a mere 5′-9″ and was proud of my status as a 98 lb. weakling. Until I began my magical medical mystery tour at 34, I struggled to maintain tipping the scales at more than 110lbs
            but once I settled into permanent disability status in my later 30’s, I never got above 125lbs.. These days, I fluctuate between 140 & 150…and have shrunken down to 5′-8″. I suppose I owe the blessing/curse of my lack of girth on an unfortunate side symptom of Mitral valve disease, I.B.S.. Why couldn’t I have just been willing to settle for an Ibis instead, I cannot say.

            Yes. No cats for us in the bedroom; they stay in their own room overnight so they don’t stand outside the bedroom door, crying piteously about how they are unloved and neglected. And it’s not rare for one or the other of us to move to the guest room at some point.

          • vorpal

            Our cat Felix was inseparable from us, since he was the baby of the family and the only cat we had when we were in Hawaii.

            Every time we tried to have sex and kicked him out of the bedroom, he would wail and cry with anguish, throwing himself at the door with all his might.

            I too need white noise to sleep ~ usually put on a 10-hour rain/thunder YouTube relaxation video. Too bad I never get more than 6 hours of sleep. When I still had Lhasa Apso’s, sleeping with them was sooo comforting and relaxing.

            Nothing like having a warm furry creature snuggle up next to you. My first pupster looked very much like this little guy, when we brought him home in 1982. He was an amazing dog.

    The court isn’t just going to wake up and flip off Gay Marriage switches the minute you get another Scalia in there. The court has to actually accept the case. There has to be a reason for it. And then there’s all that settled case law.

  • Kenneth Hamlett

    He calls himself a Christian, but says it is critical that he make sure the next Supreme Court justice is anti-gay and will vote to deny rights under our civil laws to tens of millions of hardworking, tax-paying and decent Americans because he dislikes them. He says that it is necessary because he believes that we are sinners. But, he has never proposed, supported or even suggested that the rights of those who commit any other sins be denied their rights under our civil laws. So, this is not a reaction to perceived sinfulness or a reaction related to religion at all. This is pure, unadulterated bigotry, and Mr. Brown should at least be honorable enough and honest enough to acknowledge it for what it is. Trying to pretend otherwise and disguise his prejudice as motivated by religion is a misuse of the religion and an insult to those from whom he is trying to obtain contributions. Jesus Christ never tried to deny the rights of anyone. He never refused to serve, assist or interact with anyone. He had no screening criteria for those with whom he dealt. He welcomed all, performed a miracle for an individual everyone believed to be a sinner, treated everyone with respect, kindness and dignity, and he even treated those who were conspiring to kill him with respect (and forgave them before he died). What Mr. Brown is trying to achieve is not based in religion, and it is not something that Jesus Christ would do. It is time that Christians and everyone else stood up to those trying to use our religion as an excuse for harming people and spreading hatred and fear and told them that it has gone too far. Jesus taught us to treat all others as we would be treated. Mr. Brown is urging that the opposite be done, trying to convince others to disregard the teachings of Jesus Christ. He should be confronted with his dishonesty and then ignored.
