NOM, the National Organization For Marriage, today responded to the wave of accusations of corporate-sponsored racism found in its internal corporate documents that were submitted as part of a lawsuit in Maine.
“We proudly bring together people of different races, creeds and colors to fight for our most fundamental institution: marriage,” said NOM president Brian Brown in a statement just released.
The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) was formed in 2007 and has worked extensively with supporters of traditional marriage from every color, creed and background. We have worked with prominent African-American and Hispanic leaders, including Dr. Alveda C. King, Bishop George McKinney of the COGIC Church, Bishop Harry Jackson and the New York State Senator Reverend Rubén Díaz Sr., all of whom share our concern about protecting marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
Gay marriage advocates have attempted to portray same-sex marriage as a civil right, but the voices of these and many other leaders have provided powerful witness that this claim is patently false. Gay marriage is not a civil right, and we will continue to point this out in written materials such as those released in Maine. We proudly bring together people of different races, creeds and colors to fight for our most fundamental institution: marriage.
NOM is wrong on many fronts, certainly that “[g]ay marriage is not a civil right.”
It’s important to remember that these documents released and published by HRC represent an internal, secret, confidential game plan of how NOM planned to “win marriage” worldwide.
Read our important review of these documents, and see the official documents in our article published this morning, and remember some of the statements in those very documents, like these:
“Gay marriage is the tip of the spear, the weapon that will brand is being used to marginalize and repress Christianity and the Church. What does the gay marriage idea mean once government adopts it? It means faith communities that promote traditional families should be treated in law and culture like racists.”
“The strategic goal of this project is to drive a wedge between gays and blacks—two key Democratic constituencies. Find, equip, energize and connect African American spokespeople for marriage, develop a media campaign around their objections to gay marriage as a civil right; provoke the gay marriage base into responding by denouncing these spokesmen and women as bigots…”
“The Latino vote in America is a key swing vote, and will be so even more so in the future, both because of demographic growth and inherent uncertainty: Will the process of assimilation to the dominant Anglo culture lead Hispanics to abandon traditional family values? We must interrupt this process of assimilation by making support for marriage a key badge of Latino identity – a symbol of resistance to inappropriate assimilation.”
There can be no question anymore as to NOM’s bigotry, racism, and hate-mongering tactics.
