NOM’s super-sad money beg

Timothy Kincaid

June 1st, 2015

The National Organization for Marriage is committing one of the internet cardinal sins: it’s getting boring. While at one point you could count on the NOMblog to dote about some vapid mouth-drooler they were sponsoring or hype some ridiculous boycott or post embarrassing pictures showing virtually no one at their bus tours, now it seems all they do is repost commentaries from other sites and beg for money. Well, mostly just beg for money.

It’s pretty pathetic. But the post they put up last Wednesday is even lamer than usual.

After making a bogus claim of “bringing nearly 15,000 diverse supporters of marriage to our nation’s capital for the March for Marriage” (which was in reality about 3,000 Latinos bussed in by Senator Ruben Diaz) they make this appeal:

We have spent everything in our coffers to make the March for Marriage the great success it was.

Wow. They claim to have spent every cent for that colossal waste of time.

I don’t believe them, of course. But just imagine: NOM threw a rally that got virtually zero press, had pitiable attendance, and achieved nothing. And now they are penniless. How very super-sad for them.

I wish it were true.

I haven’t seen the NOM’s latest filings, but it appears that, as far as their financial status is concerned, they may be telling the truth — for a change. They seem to have been running massive deficits over the past couple of years, and their revenues, like others in their camp, have been declining rapidly.

They may very well have cleaned out their piggy bank for their latest flop.

The good news is that NOM has become the Null Organization for Marriage.

They have sown the wind and now let them reap the whirlwind.

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers. This story is a stark reminder that there are severe and damaging consequences when therapists try to ensure that boys will be boys.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.

Anti-gay activists often charge that gay men and women pose a threat to children. In this report, we explore the supposed connection between homosexuality and child sexual abuse, the conclusions reached by the most knowledgeable professionals in the field, and how anti-gay activists continue to ignore their findings.
