NOM & FRC's failing year-end fundraisers

by Jeremy Hooper

With the December 31 countdown clock ticking away, both the Family Research Council and the National Organization For Marriage seem to be having some difficulty filling the anti-equality/anti-LGBT coffers. Towards its stated $3 million goal, FRC is showing a mere 28% fulfillment:

As for NOM, the nation's house of marriage discrimination is showing intake of only a fraction of the matched $500k that it has solicited:

Now, I should say that I've been watching long enough to know that a last-minute "miracle" could still give both organizations some sort of "victory" to press release. Funny how that happens.

But that said, it is definitely interesting, here at the end of a year where these organization's flailing futures have been projected to them in such stark writing on such undeniable walls, to see both struggling to meet their financial goals. Maybe a still cash-strapped American consumer base just loves iPads and Netflix subscriptions too much to fork over some biased bucks. Or maybe—just maybe—we're finally seeing the organic thinning of a couple of piggy banks that have been far too fattened for far too many years.
