Yes on 1's biggest donor: An examination (Vol. 13)

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2009-10-24 At 7.04.10 Pm-1A "grassfire [that] would spread across America!" That is the way that former U.S. Senator Rick "man on dog sex" Santorum reduced and condemned same-sex unions in a recent pitch letter that he penned for the National Organization For Marriage:

So why should we (and you) care about Rick/NOM's invocation of flames? Well, because gay people are not natural disasters hellbent on destroying patches of wilderness, a fact that the residents of the very green Pine Tree State should understand more than anyone. Yet that state is exactly where NOM is fanning the flames of costly bias:

$1.1 million of the $1.4 million raised by Stand for Marriage Maine in October came from a single source: the National Organization for Marriage. In fact, the Washington, D.C., organization has bankrolled more than 60 percent of the campaign to ban same-sex marriages in Maine.

These folks want our hopes and dreams to go up and flames. And they don't care how many one hundred dollar bills they have to use as kindling in order to burn up the part of the Maine constitution that was intended to grant church-separated civil fairness to ALL citizens!

The National Organization For Marriage: This group is extremist. This group is unfair. This group is hellbent on destroying anything that gets in the way along their narrow path. At this point, this group (coupled with the Catholic church, to which NOM is strongly tied) essentially is Stand For Marriage Maine (the group pushing the 'Yes on 1' side) .

We have one week to defeat this group. What will you do to help?

NO ON 1
