FoxNews: NOM Raised $100,000 in First 24 Hours After Obama's Announcement

 

FoxNews.com:

"...Gay marriage opponents are on an electoral roll. Same-sex marriage has been on a statewide ballot 32 times and each time, voters have turned it down. The National Organization for Marriage, which supports traditional marriage, has seen a spike in fundraising since Obama's comment. In the first 24 hours, the group collected $100,000 -- which is 10 times above the normal daily haul.

Expect those groups to spend it -- it's anticipated the gay marriage campaigns in the four states with votes in November will spend a combined $50 million."

    Wow! Great news for NOM :)

    I'm excited to see how our pro-marriage coalition will strengthen as we move towards the general election and various state votes on marriage.

    This comes to no surprise. Statically, looking back at past NOM IRS filings that would be two of their disclosed donors with their gay grudge. No big surprise.

    Just curious - how much do you think Obama raised after announcing he supports same-sex marriage?

    Just a guess? A lot more than $100,000.

    It makes me sick to think of gay-bashing bigots sending money in to NOM, instead of donating to charities to help gay youth left helpless after their bigot parents threw them out of their homes only because they were gay, with no means of supporting themselves, no food and no roof over their head. Many gay teens in bigot parent households are living in constant states of fear -- it absolutely is a form of domestic violence being inflicted on them by their own ignorant parents. NOM has been on the same side as a preacher telling his congregation that they should break their gay children's bones, and a public school teacher who said that gays should be allowed to serve in the military, at the front lines with hetero troops deserting them from behind. What kind of monsters must be sending money to NOM?

    Scott,

    But you have no problem with perverts out spending right minded folks ten to one do you?

    Hypocrite

    My concern is for those parents whose child turned against them in order to pursue a immoral life of sexual decadence.

    Seems to me that Scott is one of those hypocrites that I see on a daily basis from the SSM activists. I suggest he practice what he preaches it before he comes in here and preaches it to others.

    Scott's emotional venting is translated for tiny url below:

    "How hateful of you to spend your money the way I didn't tell you to!"
