We 'promise' to defeat President Obama, says org that can't even make a dent in Starbucks

by Jeremy Hooper

Defiance, reliably:

"President Obama has made the definition of marriage a defining issue in the presidential contest, especially in swing states… and we intend to win this marriage debate this November."—Brian Brown, NOM president—

WASHINGTON, D.C. — National Organization for Marriage President Brian Brown responded today to the announcement by President Obama in support of redefining traditional marriage.

"President Obama has now made the definition of marriage a defining issue in the presidential contest, especially in swing states like Ohio, North Carolina, Virginia, Florida and Nevada. Voters in all these states, and over two dozen more, have adopted state constitutional amendments defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman. President Obama says that although he personally supports gay marriage, he still supports the concept of states deciding the issue on their own. However, that is completely disingenuous. His administration is already trying to dismantle the nation's marriage laws by refusing to defend the Defense of Marriage Act in court. All the state marriage amendments and laws are at risk under a president who actively wants to change the definition of marriage. NOM will work ceaselessly in these swing states and across the nation to preserve traditional marriage because it is profoundly in the public good to do so. God is the author of marriage, and we will not let an activist politician like Barack Obama who is beholden to gay marriage activists for campaign financing to turn marriage into something political that can be redefined according to presidential whim. The definition of marriage was already headed for the ballot in four states this fall; now it will be one of the defining issues of the presidential election. No state in this country has ever voted for gay marriage. Just yesterday North Carolina voters sent a clear message that America wants to preserve marriage. We intend to win the marriage debate this November."

God is the author, Brian? Great, so hand over that fake scribbling that the poseur ghost writer at the government office gave you and your wife so that you could have a legally-recognized marriage!

You know the document I'm taking about, right? It's the one that, unlike the religious component, is required of every single couple that wants a civilly-recognized marriage (i.e. the only component the marriage equality movement is seeking). I have one of 'em, too. And the choice of whether or not we wanted God involved was mine and my husband's to make.
