At this time in '07, NOM began #Prop8 process; what are they planning right now?

by Jeremy Hooper

In December of 2007, Maggie Gallagher, Robert George, Brian Brown, Bishop Cordileone, and others (at the behest of Cordileone) began scheming to put a marriage ban on the California ballot the following year. On Xmas Eve of that year, the discriminatory process toward what became known as Proposition 8 actually began.

Here's Maggie Gallagher filling in the historical details:

So now here we are at yet another pivotal moment in the disturbing, destined-to-be-shunned, inevitably overturned history of Proposition 8. My question: What is NOM, five years later, doing and saying behind closed doors? Because they're certainly doing and saying something. They're certainly not going to lie down and be quiet.

As we head in to 2013, I vow to be even more diligent tracking NOM and every other organization that would like to rollback the positive march toward a pro-equality future. Eyes sharp, ears open—all senses engaged until all worthy couples have the engagement option.
