Anti-Gay Groups Launch 'Unprecedented' Campaign Against Pro-LGBT Republican Candidates: READ

Pro-lgbt gop

Anti-gay activist groups The National Organization for Marriage (NOM), Family Research Council Action and CitizenLink are launching “an unprecedented campaign” against three Republican candidates because of their support for marriage equality and abortion, reports Buzzfeed.

Family Research Council Action is the legislative arm of rabidly homophobic listed hate group Family Research Council.

Last month, NOM cofounder Robert George said that he couldn't think of any "logical stopping place" between gay-affirming Christians and pedophile-affirming or serial killer-affirming Christians.

The three ultra-conservative groups “will mount a concerted effort to urge voters to refuse to cast ballots” for Republican House candidates Carl DeMaio [top left] in California, Richard Tisei [middle] in Massachusetts and Republican Senate candidate Monica Wehby [right] in Oregon. DeMaio and Tisei are the only out LGBT Republican federal candidates from the to appear on the ballot this fall.

A letter  - claiming to speak on behalf of all Americans and possibly suggesting a gay recruitment drive - sent to Republican congressional and campaign leaders yesterday reads in part:

“We cannot in good conscience urge our members and fellow citizens to support candidates like DeMaio, Tisei or Wehby. They are wrong on critical, foundational issues of importance to the American people.

Worse, as occupants of high office they will secure a platform in the media to advance their flawed ideology and serve as terrible role models for young people who will inevitably be encouraged to emulate them.”

The letter goes on to warn Republican leaders that it is a “grave error” for the party to support “candidates who do not hold core Republican beliefs and, in fact, are working to actively alienate the Republican base.”

In a statement, NOM President Brian S. Brown said:

Brown“The Republican Party platform is a ‘statement of who we are and what we believe.’ Thus, the platform supports the truth of marriage as the union of husband and wife, and recognizes the sanctity and dignity of human life.

“We cannot sit by when people calling themselves Republicans seek high office while espousing positions that are antithetical to the overwhelming majority of Republicans.”

National Organization for Marriage Continues Its Fight Against Oregon's Pro-Gay Marriage Ruling

OregonFollowing U.S. District Court Judge Michael McShane's ruling back in May striking down Oregon's ban on gay marriage, the National Organization for Marriage asked the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to halt the decision. Two weeks ago, a three judge panel of the Ninth Circuit denied NOM its request, leading to the anti-gay organization to now ask the full Ninth Circuit Court to reconsider the decision.

The Oregonian reports:

NOM unsuccessfully sought to gain standing to appeal McShane's decision. But McShane denied the group's attempt to intervene in the case and NOM has so far failed to find any success on appeal. 

In its latest petition, NOM said the lack of an opposing party in the Oregon litigation is part of a dangerous trend  "threatening the very adversarial nature of our system of justice."

In February, Oregon's Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum announced she would no longer defend the state's gay marriage ban in court. 


NOM Co-founder Questions the 'Logical Stopping Place' Between Pro-Gay and Pro-Murder Christians: AUDIO

GeorgeJeremy Hooper over at Good As You points out that during a discussion on Catholic radio last week about openly gay Christian singer Vicky Beeching, National Organization for Marriage co-founder Robert George admitted he coulnd't think of any "logical stopping place" between gay-affirming Christians and pedophile-affirming or serial killer-affirming Christians. 

George did, however, make a point to say that there would still be "psychological stopping places" between those different types of Christians...there's just no "logical" ones.

And if there's one thing George is concerned with, it's logic.

9th Circuit Denies NOM Request To Halt Gay Marriages In Oregon: READ

OregonThe 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has blocked a request from the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) to halt gay marriages in Oregon, The Oregonian reports:

The action comes in the wake of the May 19 decision by U.S. District Court Judge Michael McShane in Eugene to strike down Oregon's ban on same-sex marriage. Voters in 2004 passed an amendment to the state constitution, Measure 36, defining marriage as between one man and one woman.

Supporters of same-sex marriage applauded Wednesday's decision.

"We're thrilled by the news but not surprised at all," said Jeana Frazzini, executive director of Basic Rights Oregon. "There was never any merit to their proposal and they've been denied now at every turn."

Frazzini read the court's decision and called it "decisive."

NOM can now either appeal its case to the full 9th Circuit (a three judge panel issued today's decision) or the U.S. Supreme Court. The Court previously denied a request from NOM to get involved in the case back in June. Should NOM appeal to the Supreme Court, the justices would have another chance to intervene.
