NOM will take away NY marriage licenses; driver and voter registrations apparently in clear (for now)

by Jeremy Hooper

NOM will flip the legislator in a way that has never, ever happened in New York state. Then they will convince the flipped legislature and new, NOM-approved governor that they should bring up, advance, pass, and sign a bill that intends to ban marriages that have brought nothing but good will to the Empire State. Then they'll persuade voters of a sate that consistently polls in favor of marriage equality that they've been thinking unclearly. And then, once that oh-so-easy job is done, NOM will sit back and watch as the residents of a heavily LGBT(and supportive S)-populated state roll over and allow their rights to be taken away from them.

Here's the plan:

As you know, the National Organization for Marriage fights to protect marriage in all 50 states.

Nom Email 2012-01-25 Nypac-HeaderBut you also know that New York is critically important—more so than most others.

The same-sex marriage lobbyists have been focusing on the Empire State for a long time, pouring millions of dollars into their campaigns to permanently legalize gay marriage. Now they are focused on convincing you and your fellow citizens of the LIE that the fight is over.

That is why we have a special battle plan to protect marriage in New York in 2012, and why I am writing you today.

Our fight to repeal New York's same-sex marriage law will escalate in 2012. NOM has pledged $2 million to oppose pro-gay marriage legislators who betrayed us on marriage. We must send an emphatic message to the "business-as-usual" crowd in Albany: sell out your constituents at your own risk!

Over the years, NOM has defeated every pro-gay marriage Republican we have ever targeted. With your help, we will continue that trend in New York. We will win for New Yorkers their right to vote on a statewide referendum to uphold marriage and, I've no doubt, restore the definition of true marriage in the Empire State.


Any supporter who actually believes what NOM is selling, please get in contact with me. I have a secret plan to birth gold-pooping unicorns out of snake oil which I (or one of my flying pigs) will sell you for a handy price. Special price if you act before the 12th of Never.
