Theoretical Paul v. Obama general: NOM gives nod to Democrat

by Jeremy Hooper

NOM president Brian Brown:

"Quite frankly, Ron Paul is worse on marriage than even Barack Obama." [SOURCE]

Wow, in NOM world, that's huge. President Obama is their human embodiment of marriage's supposed threats. And yet they are putting him ahead of a GOP frontrunner? This could get very interesting!

Also kind of astounding that Brian would go on record with this claim, considering that Paul supports NOM's beloved Defense of Marriage Act, whereas President Obama is working towards its end. I know what Brian means: He sees Paul's "get the government out of marriage" view as more threatening, since government limitation of one form of marriage is the bread and butter that sustains his piggy bank. But still: To issue a press release that puts a Democratic DOMA opponent above a Republican DOMA supporter? That's certainly unprecedented for a NOMmer. Also dangerous for a NOMmer, I would argue.

Fun for us, though.
