NOM’s Confidential Court Documents Reveal Worldwide Corporate Strategy Of Divisive Race-Baiting

Confidential court documents created by NOM, the National Organization For Marriage were unsealed and obtained yesterday by HRC, the Human Rights Campaign. These documents reveal a shocking and sickening corporate strategy of using race to divide Americans, creation of false positioning between Christians who do and do not support equality, and identifying “beautiful” people to embody their messaging, among other strategies, like “sideswiping Obama,” and painting him as a “social radical.”

The documents expose NOM’s philosophy: “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 documents, from 2008-2009, also reveal NOM’s budget, between tens and hundreds of millions of dollars, and their ultimate goal: to kill same-sex marriage worldwide.

Here are a few key excerpts:

“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…”

“Expose Obama as a social radical. Develop side issues to weaken pro-gay marriage political leaders and parties and develop an activist hase of socially conservative voters. Raise such issues as pornography, protection of children, and the need to oppose all efforts to weaken religious liberty at the federal level.”

“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.”

“We aim to identify young Latino and Latina leaders, especially artists, actors, musicians, athletes, writers and other celebrities willing to stand for marriage, regardless of national boundaries. …Here’s our insight: The number of “glamorous” people willing to buck the powerful forces to speak for marriage may be small in any one country. But by searching for these leaders across national boundaries we will assemble a community of next generation Latino leaders that Hispanics and other next generation elites in this country can aspire to be like. (As “ethnic rebels” such spokespeople will also have an appeal across racial lines, especially to young urbans in America.)”

HRC’s NOM Exposed adds:

“Nothing beats hearing from the horse’s mouth exactly how callous and extremist this group really is,” said HRC President Joe Solmonese. “Such brutal honesty is a game changer, and this time NOM can’t spin and twist its way out of creating an imagined rift between LGBT people and African-Americans or Hispanics.”

The document dump details NOM’s goals, including “2010 Priority: Roll Back Gay Marriage in New Hampshire, Iowa, and D.C.” and “keeping gay marriage controversial in Massachusetts, Vermont, and Connecticut.”  Marriage equality has in fact not been rolled back in either of these states or D.C.

In NOM Deposition Exhibit 12, the group notes that it plans to spend $100,000 on a “study of what schools are teaching in gay marriage/civil union regimes.”

“These documents confirm my worst beliefs about NOM’s cynical politicking,” said Jeremy Hooper, editor and publisher of Good As You and NOM Exposed partner. “It’s hard to find joy in such divisive political games, but I’m certainly glad we know NOM’s hurtful plans now before more folks are hurt.”

Below are the four sets of documents.

I read the paper and noticed a lot of research articles quoted, so I went through and read the research articles too. They are making the argument in one that children growing up in single-parent households are more prone to criminal activity and violent acts. Of course they try to make this seem as though it happens because the child's parents are unwed, which has absolutely nothing to do with the problem. The real problem is that the child doesn't have a male role model in many cases. I imagine that most of the children they claim to care so much about are actually faceless to them, especially when they would try to twist such data to their own reasons. They make me sick. "Protecting Marriage." Psh

i haven't read as much as you goose, but other times on similar issues what i read then revealed a complete lack of empirical and/or true scientific investigation. whom they call "doctors" are often crackpot ph.d.'s and other so called "experts" who have written book(s) filled with hate and bigotry in the first place as "respected authors". they sicken me too. they are the real sick ones, even though they make us seem like we are. hateful brain twists!
