NOM: The worst New Jersey joke ever CONcocted

by Jeremy Hooper

We're not sure where, exactly, NOM discovered the seeds for their money tree, but we do know that they plan to keep shaking that damn thing until every last gay person in the world gets hit with one of its bad apples:

George-Gallagher-Brown-NOM(Washington, DC) – The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) announces a new $500,000 voter outreach campaign in New Jersey highlighted by the release of a new radio ad, “Give Me a Break,” which will begin running on targeted New Jersey radio stations today and will continue for at least two weeks.

“NOM's voter outreach will include telephone calling, direct mailers, and online advertising to let voters know that Democrats are considering following Jon Corzine over a political cliff by pushing gay marriage in the lame duck," said Brian Brown, executive director of NOM.

National Organization for Marriage Launches New $500,000 Message Campaign To Trenton: "Give New Jersey voters a break; don't vote for Corzine's gay marriage bill" - Brian Brown, Executive Director [NOM]

And big shocker -- they're once again working the disingenuous idea that equality should be put on the back burner because there are other needs on the table:

So disgustingly misleading. We're not talking about days of debate and scores of resources. In a state where the high court has already demanded equality, and where the legislatively-implemented civil unions have failed to live up to that promise, the debate over whether or not to bump up the C.U. system to full equality should be a no-brainer. It need not take away from anything else. Gay people, being as full of citizens as anyone else (despite what NOM wants you to believe), care as deeply as the other issues as anyone (more, in many cases). But we also care about constitutional fairness. And so should the Garden State legislature!

NOM is a despicable group, plain and simple. The New Jersey we know and love will "give gays a break" -- a break from the hurtful slate of attacks that the National Organization For Marriage call a mission!

Your thoughts

They get their $$$$ from the LDS church and the Catholics. Despicable group of bigots.

...a telephone campaign...

...to New Jerseyites...

Well, I hope they're ready to hear an earful! If they're anything like my sister, they'll have to hang up on the people they just called! People from NJ love to speak their mind! Frequently! Loudly! And they're not a bunch of back-woods neo-cons - they KNOW what's being taught in their schools, so the homosexual porn in kindergarten lie won't fly there. They KNOW what's going on in the RCC - most of them ARE Catholic and are sick to death of what's going on politically in their church!

This should be...interesting.

Other than the Klan, who were the major groups fighting to maintain the Jim Crow laws?
We need to be linking them to NOM. Hopefully, independents would then see them as a negative factor.

I hope Tokkar is correct, but I do have my doubts and I've been living in NJ all my life. The further you get from the city, you will find the minds get narrower. Actually scratch that. A lot of NJ residents loathe NYC and find it decadent and way too liberal. And they've just elected Chris Christie as governor, someone against same sex marriage AND a woman's right to choose. My fingers are crossed on one hand and the middle finger on the other hand is ready to shoot up in the air. What can I say? I am from NJ.
