    Then you had a higher opinion of Maggie-Moo than many of us ever did, or had the hope to cultivate.

    They have absolutely no winning strategy for the courtroom, so her intent is to ramp up the religious-right base with her fraudulent gays vs christ rhetoric.

    Looks like Barefoot Maggie’s finally kicked the shoes off.

    (Oops, sorry.) ^.^

    Um, Maggie’s no longer at the helm of the organization. Brown completely replaced her in decision making while she’s off writing books and spreading lies in university debates.

    She was smart enough to lower her profile and distance her self from an organization in decline.

    If she was actually smart, that single mother wouldn’t have started NOM in the first place. In 50 years from now, people are going to equate her to the late George Wallace.

    Timothy said “And things have changed for NOM, as well. No longer behaving like a marriage advocate…”.

    The National Organization “For” Marriage never behaved like a marriage advocate. Their sole tactic in “advocating for” marriage has always been to try to prevent gays from marrying – they’ve always been anti-marriage.

    So, has Maggie/NOM, and others alike, given up on their dream of an American theocracy? Doubt it.

    Whatever brings in the money, and since it’s obvious NOM is no longer quite the gravy train it once was for Maggie, something had to be done.

    traditional marriage: permission to have sex granted by a religious entity.

    That about sums it up, doesn’t it Ricky?

    Er, didn’t NOM get Orson Scott Card on board not long ago? The SF writer who declared that if the government legalized marriage for teh gays, this was reason enough to overthrow the government? Orson Scott Card, homophobic terrorist.

    OMG Tim!!!!! That pic of Maggie!! I am peeing my pants here! BRILLIANT!!!!

    If this horrible woman wasn’t working for NOM she’d only be qualified to be a Wal-Mart greeter!!! (If that!)

    What exactly are Maggie’s qualifications/credentials on the marriage issue, other than the mindless abundant bigotry rising up from her gut? Given that she has become the largest ubiquitous figure in the marriage battle due to her presumed expertise, wouldn’t you have expected her to be the most sought-after witness to testify at the Prop-8 trial? But there was that little problem of cross-examination – Oops.

    Well, her most impressive credential is a B.A. degree in Religious Studies from Yale University, which essentially means that her expertise is in the study of how superstitious nonsense is transformed into Magic Truth.

    Here’s a funny observation: Guess what comes up when you dial the letters NOM on a telephone keypad?
