NOM's faith-based hubris: Your equal protection said waiting for Brian Brown's okay

by Jeremy Hooper

Here's my faith. Here's our faith:

Screen Shot 2011-03-25 At 8.54.17 AmThe true, the good, and the beautiful have a power, which will in the end prevail.

We keep proving that every day, with unexpected victory piled on impossible victory.

God bless you, my friend. I pray for you and for your family. I'm so grateful for all you make possible!

Please pray for all of the people leading this good fight.

-Brian Brown, National Organization For Marriage president, writing in the organization's latest e-newsletter
