Despite months of emails, despite promises of huge attendance, and despite free busses to protectors of the faith from New York City, NOM’s anti-gay hate march today was able to get at most about 2000 supporters of “traditional marriage” to “March for Marriage.”
2000 people attended a rally in Washington, D.C. that the National Organization For Marriage, the nation’s number one anti-gay marriage organization — funded by major religious institutions — has been promoting daily for months.
2000 people attended a rally in Washington, D.C. that headlined the Archbishop of San Francisco, Tea Party Republican heroes Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee, and Congressman Tim Huelskamp, along with a plethora of anti-gay religious leaders, like Bishop Harry Jackson.
But perhaps that’s because Americans who are opposed to same-sex marriage don’t really care much about it anyway.
One, a video and transcript of the Archbishop of SanFrancisco’s speech today.
This year’s March featured the runners-up for the GOP nominations in 2008 and 2012, Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum. Santorum on the March.
That’s literally “all she wrote.”
