270 and counting
When the Family Research Council signed the National Organization For Marriage to sponsor the "New Media Row" at their upcoming Values Voters Summit, we can't imagine that this is the sort of new media result that FRC was hoping to experience:
Values Voters Summit Facebook Page [Organized by NOM]
And what's truly interesting about this Facebook FAIL is that NOM has been promoting this VV Summit event on their own official Facebook page since last Thursday morning. Yet not one person -- NOT ONE PERSON -- has come over to register their attendance, or voice even an ounce of support for the VV Summit's agenda.
But in NOM's defense: Maybe when FRC said "New Media Row," Maggie Gallagher and Brian Brown thought FRC was imitating a Brit telling them to get into a contentious row with the very concept.
**UPDATE: Now up to 330 non-attendees. Still a whopping 0 yes or maybes.
Since coming out in 1969 I have witnessed the extraordinary progress in the march toward our goal of full equality. And with the pace of that progress accelerating, the final outcome is certain. So I often find myself wondering how anti-gay groups and their people will reinvent themselves after the battle is over. Where will one go for employment with a resume that shows the last 15 years of work experience as a Professional Bigot, or a Gay-Bashing Specialist, or the president of a hate-group.
Perhaps NOM will become the driving force behind National Obesity Month, and Maggie Gallagher will be their poster woman.

OOOH! Richard...that's just what FAUX news said about the new Surgeon General...doesn't sound any better from our side.

Oh please. the Fox News thing about the Surgeon General is just a nasty talking point. But it does bring up a point. Let's focus on the lying arguments of those who oppose us and not their physical attributes. Truth be known - I've closed up a few buffet restaurants myself.

NOM really is ringing hollow these days. I've noted in the last couple public events in RI they could barely muster up a half dozen people to the 300 to 500 we could muster.
And please don't get my started on Fox News. My father is a faithful watcher and repeats their talking points ad infinitum. I of course have to call him on it saying the biggest beneficiaries of the so called socialist movement are his fucking generation.

Maggie Gallagher is just mad because no one who can see would marry a fat cow like her and she is taking it out on us
