♪ All NOM wants for Christmas is to front for grief ♪
LGBT people, you better wake up and wake up fast! Because if you don't see this latest bit noxious rhetoric from the National Organization For Marriage's Brian Brown as an act of war against our lives and loves, then you simply aren't paying attention:
With your help, I firmly believe that 2010 will be the year in which the gay marriage movement cedes momentum back to the defenders of right and decency in our society. Shocked by consecutive defeats deep in blue state territory, gay marriage activists must now regroup and rethink their strategy.
In 2010, we will likely see an effort to repeal the federal Defense of Marriage Act. We have now proven at the state level that your phone calls and emails, especially when they number in the tens of thousands, are a powerful voice that legislators can't ignore. Next year, we need to take that state model and expand it nationally, identifying thousands of pro-marriage activists in every congressional district across the country. We want each of the 435 members of Congress to know that their own constituents are ready and waiting, even on a moment's notice, to stand up and speak out for marriage -- and that if they mess with marriage, they do so at their own electoral peril.
"Hatred" is not a term we use lightly here at G-A-Y. But it is simply undeniable: NOM is fomenting hatred against us wherever and whenever they can. For those of us who managed to crawl through the marriage window: They want to crawl into our homes and rip up our certified licenses. For those of us who simply want to live and let live: They want to add a parenthetical "(just as long as its by the terms of anti-gay Christianity)" at the end of that concept. And regardless of where you stand: NOM wants you to believe that they are the "defenders of right and decency," which obviously puts up in the opposite army. Think about that for a second. Without knowing you, your family, or your values, Maggie Gallagher, Brian Brown, Robert George, and the rest of NOM's shame propagators are calling you indecent, immoral, unrighteous, and deserving of national hostility! And they are doing it in the name of Jesus. ♪Joy to the world, the Lord has come...♪
Here at the end of year, at what should be a time of peace, this Catholic group (Maggie, Brian, and Robbie are all devout) is seeking the advent of a more homo-hostile American than we have ever known. If that scares the shit out of you, then good. Because if we don't prove we can do more than show up at rallies, then the period between now and our inevitable victory could come at a great cost.
**Brian's full email:
Sorry, I have nothing constructive to add. I just needed to get that off my chest.

Prions on the nervous system of civilized society. Every one of them. When the oppurtunity presents itself, I will piss on Maggie and Brian's graves.

My family and I have been standing against NOM for some time now and nothing they can do will ever change that. I truly believe that 2010 will be more progress for the LGBT community. Not only will more states recognize our right to marry but more states will make sure we aren't discriminated in our jobs and housing, and that our relationships need protection too.
NOM can pull shit out of their asses and claim that gay marriage is bad for society. They don't speak for everyone. I, personally, have seen the good in gay marriage. My family and I know that this fight is worth it. We may lose battles from time to time but as long as there is hope and a dream where everyone is equal under the law, it will be worth seeing NOM go down in defeat and I want to be around to see that happen. Seeing us win or even seeing a strong percentage of the people (48% in California and 47% in Maine) is enough to know that this fight is worth it.
Equality, including marriage, for everyone!!!

Also want to add that we need some BIG BIG celebrity weddings promoted in NH in JAN if possible. Especially if there are many happy contented married couples from MASS, CONN, CANADA as guests!!! I know people don't want their private celebrations to become 'politicized' but we NEED some happiness showing.
Where were all the fifth ANNIV Mass parties? or aren't they? etc etc etc.

They can claim all the victories they want. We are winning the war.
4 states legalized marriage.
DC on the way
Civil unions in WA - we won the popular vote, NV - the legislature overrode a governor's veto
24 senators and the majority of Assembly members voting for marriage equality in NY (even though we lost that battle, we still have legislators voting in our favor)
Despite what may have happened over the last 6 weeks, 2009 turned out to be a pretty good year for the LGBT community.

I see nothing in their message says anything about banning Divorce.

Maggie and Brian are miserable twats who deserve every bad thing that can befall a human being. They should be on the SPLCs list of anti-gay hate groups. Why aren't they?
