National Organization for Marriage gets paltry welcome in Maine

Timothy Kincaid

July 14th, 2010

NOM’s Bus of Animus has rolled into Augusta, ME. And thousands hundreds a hand full of people came out to greet them and support their wackadoodlery. (WCSH)

The National Organization for Marriage, a group which helped local efforts to overturn Maine’s law, made Augusta its first stop on a 20-city tour, targeting areas where it feels traditional marriage is under attack. Brian Brown, the organization’s executive director, told his crowd of about 50 people that court cases in Massachusetts and in California affect the marriage issue across the country.

Across town, a counter protest pulled in about 150 folks with the Governor making a surprise appearance. (Maine Watch Dog)

Should NOM be as successful in ever stop as they were with the launch of their 29 city tour, they have the potential to reach up to 1,000 people and change hundreds of dozens of no minds.

I feel I should follow this tour around just play the Losing Horns from The Price is Right at every stop. It’s so sad.

Albany July 17 11:30 at the reflecting pools. Be there or be square.

It looks like the average age of their supporters is around 72. What, did they have their “rally” at the senior citizens’ center or at a nursing home?

I wonder how many of the 50 in their crowd were actually NOT supporters but curious bystanders or even gay supporters there keeping an eye on them.

It’s official, NOM has become irrelevant.

I’d be more encouraged if NOM hadn’t been so successful in removing gay marriage from Maine.
