Brian Brown, president of NOM, the National Organization For Marriage, just stated, “Americans remain strongly in favor of marriage as the union of one man and one woman.”
Brown, facing a massive defeat that spanned the nation, and probably worrying about his job, has decided to ignore reality — including decisions in four states yesterday and three years of polls that say the majority of Americans support marriage equality.
“Our opponents and some in the media will attempt to portray the election results as a changing point in how Americans view gay marriage, but that is not the case,” Brown writes in a statement.
Yes, keep telling yourself that, Brian.
Your old boss, Maggie Gallagher, sure is also trying to spin it.
“Real America” didn’t vote for same-sex marriage, just those who showed up: “The Obama electorate.”
“Real America,” in Gallagher’s eyes, and in Brown’s stayed home.
“Americans remain strongly in favor of marriage as the union of one man and one woman,” Brown continues. “The election results reflect the political and funding advantages our opponents enjoyed in these very liberal states.”
Minnesota, where they have already banned same-sex marriage, just wanted to ensure “activist judges” could not undo the law so they tried to force it into their constitution. Minnesota, home to an anti-gay hate group so anti-gay they still insist on calling HIV/AIDS, “GRIDS.” Minnesota, home to the Michele Bachmann and a “suicide contagion area” known as the Anoka-Hennepin school district.
