NOM. Mad. Again.

by Jeremy Hooper

Another day, another press release in which a failure of a special interest group pretends it has the intellectual, political, legal, and moral capital to condemn and/or bully others:

"In the end, this is simply an act of cowardice, with these officials bending to the false narrative of 'inevitability' projected by the radicals determined to impose marriage redefinition nationwide." — Brian Brown, NOM president —

Washington, D.C. — The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) today called the decision by the state of Nevada's executives to withdraw their defense of the state's marriage laws "poor legal reasoning" and "a betrayal" of their sworn duty to voters. Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto issued her opinion in a motion filed with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in a case challenging Nevada's voter-passed marriage amendment which became law in 2002. Governor Brian Sandoval then said in an email to The Associated Press that he agreed with Masto's interpretation.

This one is especially stinging considering it comes from a Democratic attorney general and a Republican governor. Opposing the NOM agenda is becoming a bipartisan affair, and it's shattering Brian Brown.
