The documents reveal NOM’s plan to “win marriage” by dividing and conquering, and, race-baiting.

“NOM’s underhanded attempts to divide will not succeed if Black Americans remember their own history of discrimination,” said Julian Bond. “Pitting bigotry’s victims against other victims is reprehensible; the defenders of justice must stand together.”

It's one thing to know NOM is reprehensible and quite another to be able to prove it, in writing, in their own words. Good job to expose this and many thanks to Julian Bond. Mr. Bond has been and continues to be a powerful ally and example of why we are all in this together.

His quote is right! "Hey we gave you guys some rights, so help us in stopping giving these guys some rights!"
