Yes on 1's biggest donor: An examination (Vol. 3)

by Jeremy Hooper

Mags-GallagherIn April of this year, the National Organization For Marriage's Maggie Gallagher shared this little nugget with the Dallas Morning News' Rod Dreher:

Rod Dreher: Maggie, you and I are on the same side of the gay marriage issue, but I am pessimistic about our chances for success. You, however, are optimistic. What am I missing?

Maggie Gallagher: Vlaclav [sic] Havel mostly. "Truth and love will prevail over lies and hate." On that basis Havel took on the Soviet empire. Where is that invincible empire now?

Same-sex marriage is founded on a lie about human nature: 'there is no difference between same-sex and opposite sex unions and you are a bigot if you disagree'.

Political movements can--sometimes at great human cost and with great output of energy--sustain a lie but eventually political regimes founded on lies collapse in on themselves.

Yes, that's right: She honestly compared herself to legendary human rights activist, freedom fighter, measured thinker, and Rent lyric...




...Vaclav Havel. And she compared our lives and loves to the former Soviet Empire, saying that our bonds are a lie, our support for their civil recognition constitutes "hate," and that our very human nature is up for "culture war" debate. And she quite unabashedly seeks our collapse. Think about that for a second. Especially if you are a Maine voter:

$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.

The National Organization For Marriage: This group is extremist. This group is unfair. This group is hellbent on destroying anything who gets on 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
