NOM FAIL: They don't even know their own URL edition

by Jeremy Hooper

Since former online guru Louis Marinelli saw the National Organization For Marriage's work firsthand, disliked what he saw, and therefore chose to regain control of the Facebook page that he had given to them, Brian Brown and company were forced to change their Twitter background image in order to reflect this new social media reality:

NOM's TWITTER, OLD BACKGROUND:

NOM's TWITTER, NEW BACKGROUND:

Only problem? Well, look not at the Facebook change, but rather at their homepage URL. They changed it from .org to .com. Which would be fine if not for one teensy little issue: The National Organization For Marriage does not actually operate under the .com domain. Go see for yourself. NationForMarriage.com is a link farm/holding page:

Honestly: It's like they're trying to make it easy for us.

*ALSO: Notice they also changed the stock photo on their Twitter. Probably a good idea, since the bride in their former graphic, Irina B., went on record with us to say that gays are suffering "spiritual death" and on the fast track to hell. That's kinda, sorta off message for a group that can't even admit it wants to ban same-sex marriages because, as they admit, it "causes us to lose about ten percentage points in polls."
