Anti-Gay Group NOM Facing Potential Double Legal Trouble

First Thing to Do November 1: Skip “Ender’s Game”

By: Thursday October 31, 2013 4:00 pm

There are many reasons why I’m not going to see Ender’s Game. Orson Scott Card’s homophobia; I don’t care for science-fiction; Orson Scott Card advocates government overthrow; no actors I care about; Orson Scott Card plays the victim; there are way better movies opening and in theaters already; Orson Scott Card, as a producer stands to make money from Ender’s Game, and if the film does well, from subsequent sequels and merchandising.

Updating NOM’s Marriage Map

By: Saturday October 19, 2013 6:40 pm

This Summer, after legislatures in Rhode Island, Delaware and Minnesota granted same-sex couples the freedom to marry and the US Supreme Court struck down California’s discriminatory Proposition 8 as well as the federal Defense of Marriage Act, National Organization for Marriage put on a brave face and posted a map.

The map was inaccurate as soon as it was posted because it erroneously depicted California as a state with “marriage in jeopardy” rather than what it was by that date, a marriage equality state.

In the midst of a government shutdown (thank you Republican party and especially you teabaggers), comes this news.

NOM Gives Accidental Compliment to the Gay Community

By: Wednesday September 18, 2013 1:20 pm

No matter how many times we were beaten and Maggie Gallagher or Brian Brown would mock us, we never gave up. We – in the words of a famous pro wrestler whom I adore – “sweat, bleed, and paid the price.” And now, we are where we need to be. Not where we want to be, but at a much better place than where we were.

Now that the Marriage Equality Ship Has Sailed, NOM’s Donors Are M.I.A.

By: Wednesday September 11, 2013 10:20 am

In the past year alone NOM has failed to stop marriage equality legislation or ballot measures in Washington, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Delaware, Rhode Island, France and the United Kingdom, and they lost the precedence-setting DOMA and Proposition 8 cases in the Supreme Court.

The marriage ship has sailed, and NOM’s supporters know it.

GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network, is honoring Lionsgate, the studio behind Ender’s Game at their annual $,1000/ticket Respect Awards in October. Disgusting. It’s shameful that GLSEN would do this, and looks really bad
