NOM won't rest until gay Iowans' lives are more restless

by Jeremy Hooper

On Tuesday night, National Organization for Marriage Cultural Director Thomas Peters tweeted his thoughts about "weak candidate" Cindy Golding. Now, finally, a more official NOM response:

"Our goal in Iowa is to play a constructive role in ensuring that the people of Iowa have the right to vote on the definition of marriage and we intend to see that happen," said Brian Brown, NOM's president. "The leadership of the state Senate has blocked a vote on marriage even though voters in 31 other states have enjoyed that right. We supported Cindy Golding in the 18th Senate District special election because she was committed to allowing a vote on marriage. While we are disappointed that she didn't win this tight election, we have no doubt that we will eventually prevail. Ultimately, democracy will not be denied in Iowa and the people will get their vote."

Oh Brian. You lost me at "constructive role."
