NOM's Chairman threatens an 'eruption'

by Jeremy Hooper

If marriage equality, like so many other civil rights battles, is won via court action rather than a fifty state fight to the finish, John Eastman, Chairman of the Board of the National Org. For Marriage, warns America:

"If they don't let it be fought out in the states, there is going to be an eruption"

Sounds dangerous. And kind of threatening.

Fortunately we're talking about NOM, an organization that is about 99.5% bark and only .5% bite. This crew can't even use its heightened press attention to drum up more than 8,000 Twitter followers*, much less a new American revolution. Peter Brady's volcano....

...was less ill-fated than whatever "eruption" NOM has planned.

*And a great deal of those followers are gay activists who monitor them.
