In an email claiming credit for stalling the Illinois marriage equality bill, National Organization for Marriage’s Brian Brown stated today that “NOM put everything we had into this fight”. However, “everything” was reportedly only $125,000, according to NOM’s own emails and blog post as well as blog posts from another anti-gay organization focused on this debate.

I am almost at a loss for words to express the level of contempt I have for the National Organization for Marriage and its most high-profile purveyors of hate and intolerance, Brian Brown and Maggie Gallagher. Always couching their arguments as protecting “traditional marriage” and the family when crowing on the media, NOM most recently tried to work its magic working behind closed doors trying to drive a wedge between the black (and Latino) community and LGBTs in order to kill pro-marriage equality ballot initiatives.
Failing miserably at the voting booth in November, Brian Brown sees fertile ground in countries where existing as a gay human being is against the law and/or where culturally, the concept of someone violently beating, maiming or killing someone based on real or perceived sexual orientation is common place.

On the National Organization for Marriage’s blog, NOM president Brian Brown is raising a fuss about a disastrous debate he had on the Fox Network show Stossel two weeks ago.
Brown’s biggest adversary wasn’t the person he was debating, David Haryansi, but host John Stossel and the audience. And this week, Stossel continued to criticize Brown’s argument and performance in a column.
