    So do these ridiculous and unnecessary “religious exemptions” allow religiously-affiliated businesses like hospitals to ignore same-sex marriages?

    “I don’t know that I would say Rhode Island is a trend.”

    Brian Brown will still be saying that when the 20th state votes for equality

    Denial- not just a river in Egypt…

    No Rhode Island isn’t a trend… But ten states, each coming more quickly than the last, with ever increasing bipartisan support, with increasing populace appeal, that’s a trend.

    “NOM’s Brian Brown remains in denial”

    That’s because the alternative to denial is too terrifying for him to contemplate: Rhode Island represents another crack in the track that will soon derail his NOM gravy train that pays him $500,000 a year to support his wife and their eight children. He’s not yet prepared to face the reality that irresponsibly prolific breeding has consequences, especially when coupled with his job-failure in a field that has no future.

    I don’t think Brian Brown makes $500,000 a year. I remember Maggie Gallagher made right around $200,000 wasn’t Brian Brown around $300,000 a YEAR. I’m trying to remember.

    Hi StraightGrandmother,

    I’ve seen it in a few places. Here is one of them:


    After considerable effort, former presidential candidate Fred Karger got a copy of NOM’s 2011 501(c)3 tax return and discovered that Brown made serious bank in 2011.

    He [Brown] was paid $230,000 by NOM’s political operation where he claimed to work a minimum of 40 hours per week, and another whopping $230,000 from NOM’s Educational Fund where he claimed to work another 40 hours per week. Add $47,000 in benefits and you have the “Half-Million Dollar Man.”

    Here are links to the tax returns:
