NOM Announces 2018 Marriage Hate March

Back in June, after more than six months of near daily money begs and incessant cries of impending victory due to the election of Donald Trump, NOM’s fifth annual anti-LGBT marriage march in Washington DC drew a hilarious 47 attendees (“including babies”) according to a count done by one of our friends on Twitter. So of course, Hate March 2018 has been announced.

Via email:

I’m pleased to announce that the 2018 March for Marriage has been set! Please mark the date – Saturday, June 23rd – in Washington, DC. The annual March for Marriage is an important milestone in our ongoing efforts to restore marriage to the law. It provides us an opportunity to remind the Supreme Court, our elected officials and the American people that marriage was wrongly redefined in an illegitimate, anti-constitutional ruling in 2015.

It also gives our supporters the opportunity to come to DC to stand strong for the beauty and truth of marriage as the union of one man and one woman. It’s this foundational institution that forms the glue to hold couples, families and our entire society together, binding men and women to each other and ensuring that any children born of their union have the opportunity to know the love of their mother and father.

Putting on the annual March is an expensive undertaking, and we would appreciate any support you can provide. If you are able, please also consider becoming a Sustaining Member of NOM by pledging a monthly donation to us of any amount you choose. The revenue from Sustaining Members provides a stable base of funding that helps us plan for activities like the March for Marriage.

    “marriage was wrongly redefined in an illegitimate, anti-constitutional ruling in 2015.”

    Illegitimate??? Bubba – you be talking about the Supremes, and I doubt they will take kindly to your slam. RBG is known to carry a can of whoop-ass.

    Don’t forget to visit the NOM store to get your official march uniform.

      Irony: Racists and Dunce’s wear the same hat.

    • Dagoril

      NOM would raise more money if they just went ahead and sold them.

    • Uncle Mark

      I’m more of an “autumn person.” White just doesn’t look that good on me. Plus I don’t like the designs/colors of their coffee cups.

  • Bambino

    Anyone who can’t deal with their own fuck up relationship will be there. Because nothing says more about the success of one’s marriage than attending a public protest against someone else.

  • JCF

    Oh, what a great thing to wake up to (or in my case, go to bed to).

    Thank God they’re irrelevent.

  • Gerry Fisher

    It’s *never* too soon to plan your acts of hate.

  • dcurlee

    What he’s saying is I know now it’s a lost cause but please send in donations I need to get my salary

  • shellback

    I would post the book cover of the cute bunny saying “Not This Asshole Again,” but like “Bye Felicia,” it’s been over-used to death. Instead, I’ll just say, fuck off.

    • Snarkaholic

      What we need is to write and illustrate the rest of that book (with a happy ending, of course) and then post it here.
      (I write fairly well, but can’t draw at all…anyone interested in a collaboration?)

  • gaycuckhubby

    I wonder if their former pollster Kellyanne Conway will make an appearance?

  • Joe in PA

    …Putting on the annual March is an expensive undertaking…

    Bwahahahahaha. Sure Jan.

  • Rebecca Gardner

    OT but the thoughts and prayers bullshit is everywhere.

    https://twitter.com/BikerBecca/status/927516637426839552

    • JackFknTwist

      That’s a lot of time praying with f uck all results.

      Try an alternative strategy. The ‘prayer’ thing isn’t working.

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      Do they all think they were elected be a preacher, or to protect their constituents ?

      • Chucktech

        The awesome power of prayer ought to be doing that. I just don’t understand why it doesn’t seem to be working…

        • Ragnar Lothbrok

          I am soooo sick of hearing : ” praise the lord for keeping me or so and so from attending church that day, he sure is a loving god ”

          !!!!!!!!

          • NMNative

            Survivors of mass shootings often credit god with saving them. Of course that means that this same god deliberately allowed those that did die to be slaughtered.

    • Todd20036

      LOL. If praying were even remotely useful, then why couldn’t the victims pray themselves alive at their own fucking church?

    • 2patricius2

      People have been praying for years, and the shootings have been getting more frequent. Hmm. I wonder why….

    • DonnaLee

      You know what can really work? Hugging a woman who lost a family member, and the family doesn’t know who should care for the children, since the father was not old or in poor health. She needed a hug and to be able to cry about the shit-show going on with her extended family. It’s not much, but it at least made one person actually feel better.

  • Friday’s_cat

    You and the shaman you follow can decide what requirements the ritualistic ceremony to unite two beings needs to be met in your cult. You can’t decide how others do.
    Two consenting adults can enter into a civil contract defining common interests, rights of custody and inheritance without religious superstitions interfering.

  • vorpal 😼

    Will they start a GoFundie campagin to rent the six golf carts they’ll need to transport in the participants this year?

  • Johnny Wyeknot

    It’s their reason to be. It’s their way of asking for money. Hopefully those 47 people also tour Washington monuments where they will read inspirational quotations from the founders of this nation which should clearly show them they are wrong.

    • Tawreos

      If they haven’t learned enough over the course of their lives to know that attending a hate event is not a good idea I doubt a few quotes are going to change their hatefully closed minds.

    • Snarkaholic

      No such luck…instead, they’ll look at the monuments and make remarks like, “Hey, see that there Capital Building dome? It looks like a giant boob! Heh-heh-heh!”

      • Johnny Wyeknot

        And the giant erection in the center of the Mall!

  • Anastasia Beaverhousen

    This is as useless as “Thoughts and Prayers.”

  • NOM is so incredibly pathetic at this point making fun of them is almost like kicking an elderly racist down a flight of stairs: you know they deserve it, but you risk looking petty.

    I’d like to think a “Same-Sex Marriage Celebration” counter protest could scare them away for good, but most likely it would just fool them into thinking they still matter. (I say “them” but I’m thinkin’ NOM is just Brian and the voices in his head these days.)

    • Michael White

      but NOM is a money maker for the “leaders” and that is all that counts.

      • Matt

        Yeah, pretty sure all the money they make (which isn’t that much) goes directly into their own pockets. The cheapness of their organization shows it rarely gets invested in what they promote.

    • skyweaver

      Honestly I keep picturing a lot of fun, groovy people showing up with lawn chairs and mai tais and just watching from some distance away – long enough away they’re clearly there for the drinks

  • Tawreos

    How much can it cost to have a space for 4 dozen people to come together to get their hate on in public?

    • Gil

      $137.24

      • Tawreos

        Let’s hope that that amount is out of their reach.

        • Snarkaholic

          Hopefully, as at least some of them begin to realize that ALL of their social programs’ handouts are drying up, they’ll know that they can’t afford to travel there.

  • Ernest Endevor

    Sarah Sanders worked for the American Principles Fund. From GLAAD:

    “Headed the American Principles Fund, a Super PAC that attacks candidates for their support of LGBTQ rights and other social issues. The Fund is a spinoff of the American Principles Project, a conservative organization founded by National Organization For Marriage (NOM) cofounder and Federal Marriage Amendment author Robert George. The Fund has been largely financed by Sean Fieler, a major NOM donor.”

    • Tawreos

      So she is not just a poorly dressed liar, she is poorly dressed hateful liar. She really needs to rethink her career and wardrobe choices.

      • Michael White

        she is her father’s whelp. What can one expect.

      • Uncle Mark

        Are you REALLY surprised by this? She looks & dresses like Kim Davis, and is the lying crotch-fruit of Mike Huckabee (close friend of the Duggars, who’s molesty son was one of the head shits of the FRC)

  • Harveyrabbit

    Do kid’s dolls and pet dogs count towards attendance? They might hit 55 this time.

    • Tawreos

      Poor puppies being dragged around to bolster haters attendance numbers. Any dog owner should walk their dog on those grounds in the days leading up to it and “forget” to bag up the leavings.

    • OdieDenCO

      brian should count the crickets and get a clue.

  • Bluto
    • Todd20036

      Who is he? He’s kind of cute.

      • jmax

        Bo Burnham, a comedy song writer. Some of his humor is a little too homophobic for me. But he is kinda cute.

  • gaycuckhubby

    This story is weird and underreported. Feels like there’s a huge piece missing.

    • Rebecca Gardner

      What’s this about?

      • greenmanTN

        The guy (a neighbor) who beat up Rand Paul.

      • gaycuckhubby

        Rand Pauls neighbor broke 5 of his ribs but was let out on bail the first night

        • Rebecca Gardner

          Oh ok.

          Also, can I be a grammar Nazi and point out that what you wrote means the neighbor, not Rand Paul, ended up with the 5 broken ribs? LOL

          • gaycuckhubby

            Woops.. yes, Rand suffered the injuries. 🙂

          • JackFknTwist

            That’s a relief.
            I was worried about the neighbour.

          • stuckinthewoods

            Thanks for clarifying. I’d hate to think it was Boucher who’d ended up with 5 broken ribs. That sounds serious.

          • Todd20036

            Awww. Poor baby.
            There, they’re, their.

    • Friday

      I can only guess from the relatively minor charge and that that there must have been a lot of provocation, or something very two-sided about the altercation.

      • greenmanTN

        Policeman: Who did you beat up?

        Assailant: Rand Paul

        Policeman: Oh. Need a ride home?

        • DonnaLee

          Well yeah, cause it’s not like he’s useful or relevant.

    • Bluto

      I blame BLM, antifa, the Mexicans & moose lambs.

    • Ninja0980

      IMO, Rand challenged the guy to a fist fight and lost..badly.

      • Chucktech

        Isn’t Rand about 5′ 2″ tall?

        • bzrd

          5’8″

    • Uncle Mark

      Since Rand doesn’t want to talk about it, I wonder if the neighbor’s wife (maybe daughter/son) might somehow be involved

    • Uncle Mark

      The little weasel changes positions so often, I just don’t know how the neighbor managed to hit him.

  • gaycuckhubby

    We live in Trumps America now. Do you think the rally will be larger this year?

    • greenmanTN

      Maybe. We shall see…

    • Friday

      Maybe a couple more hate groups will bother, but those dwindling numbers probably make it something bullies don’t exactly want to be seen with, so maybe not.

    • greenmanTN

      Maybe Milo Whatshisfaceilos will join them.

    • Todd20036

      No. Most of those fucks are too lazy to schlep to DC.
      Besides, marriage is legal for gays, and nothing bad happened except a few haters were butt hurt. So except for raising money, NOM isn’t even doing anything

    • TominDC

      It’s getting to the point where they can fit every attendee into one single minivan (<50 attended this year).

      I'm predicting half-a-dozen minivans next year, mostly thanks to the cover the shitgibbon gives to bigots.

  • olandp

    Wouldn’t it be great if hundreds of married gay and lesbian couples showed up to “March for Marriage” with all of the appropriate PDA. That would put an end to this stupid shit.

    • Bluto

      I like your thinking.

      • Janice

        Google is paying 97$ per hour,with weekly payouts.You can also avail this.
        On tuesday I got a great New Land Rover Range Rover from having earned $11752 this last four weeks..with-out any doubt it’s the most-comfortable job I have ever done .. It sounds unbelievable but you wont forgive yourself if you don’t check it

      Pfft. All that would do is poke the little snakes nest of gawdly fucks. Christian douches are an excitable bunch.

    • DonnaLee

      Especially if they made sure there was no power going to the microphones, so NOM would just have to try to yell over thousands of married, with children, LGBT couples! If you bring enough rainbow signs and clothing, the haters would leave, and then the stage could be used for drag karaoke later that day.

    Technically, can you call it a “March” with just 47 people? 40th High School Reunion maybe, but March?

  • lizdhm

    At this point, I even feel bad laughing at them.

  • Ya know back before the SCOTUS ruling, donating to NOM would make those bigots feel as if they were in the fight for keeping marriage to themselves. But now? Anyone that donates to this imbecile organization is either not firing on all cylinders or is blind to facts and still believes they have a change to turn back time to a bigot filled world.

    Doesn’t Brian Brown have appointments in Egypt and Russia? And Romania too, where he wants there to be a constitutional amendment added despite the fact that gay marriage is already prohibited by law there.

  • Pete Wascher

    not alot of enthusiastic members but well funded? by whom?

    • NedFlaherty

      For nearly 2 decades now, the anti-marriage-equality movement was totally funded by: authoritarian, right-wing theocrats from the Mormon clergy, Roman Catholic clergy, and about 25 of their followers.

  • NowAnAgnostic

    Thoughts and prayers.

  • Laughable as this turnout may seem, the Republican Party are committed to the repeal of Obergefell, and are now in a position to populate SCOTUS vacancies with evangelical judges, who will be there for decades, if not generations. If the Republican Party further increase their majorities in the mid-terms they could have the numbers to amend the US Constitution, with a definition of marriage as being opposite-sex only.

    • Gianni

      One thing: the Congress can’t amend the Constitution. They can propose and prepare the amendment then send it on its way to the state legislatures. It’s a long, arduous, and difficult legislative process and it wouldn’t succeed. They haven’t managed to get their favorite legislative bills to Donnie’s desk so far and they control both the branches. They won’t waste their time on something that requires so much more work and support.

  • Gest2016

    NOM lost its magic the day Thomas Peters jumped in a lake naked at night with his “friend” and paralyzed himself against a rock. It just isn’t the same with Brian “talking asshole” Brown shitting out the same old shit … much more entertaining with the cute, closeted and now permanently paralyzed Thomas Peters there.

    • Reality.Bites

      I wonder what he’s up to.

    I understand there are a couple of lions in Kenya who apparently caught a case of teh gay and are in need of some up-close and personal counseling. And don’t worry about those sharp teeth and claws; your faith will protect you just like Daniel! Or maybe like Timothy Treadwell (no wait, that didn’t turn out so well…!).

  • Terry

    I bet it is probably a day before DC Pride. And all 12 of them will show up
