NOM & FRC's failing year-end fundraisers
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.
