“We cannot let presidential politics divide or distract us from the task of building a winning majority of people with shared values” -- Brian Brown, President of NOM
WASHINGTON – In response to the controversy surrounding religious differences at the Values Voters Summit, Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), released this statement:
"We can not let presidential politics divide us or distract us from the task of building a winning majority of people with shared values. In particular, members of the LDS church should not be attacked or made to feel unwelcome for their faith by the left or the right,” said Brown. “People of all faiths, and no faith, are welcome to join us to fight to protect marriage as the union of husband and wife-- Evangelicals, Catholics, Jews, LDS, Eastern Orthodox, African-Americans, Whites, Hispanics, we are the true diverse rainbow coalition: fighting for the rights of all Americans to vote for marriage."
"We welcome Pastor Jeffress’ acknowledgement that Romney is a “good and moral man” and that he would support Romney if he were the GOP nominee,” added Brown.
