NOM's Brian Brown Increasingly Unhinged

If you believe Brown, Tim Gill somehow rigged the New Hampshire legislature to vote for marriage equality in 2009. Exactly how he accomplished that feat remains unknown.

Now Brian Brown, who is nothing but a proxy for the US Conference of Roman Catholic Bishops wants the Church to be able to determine the rights of citizens.

At this point, it seems obvious that the anti-equality caucus in the New Hampshire legislature lacks the votes to repeal marriage equality let alone the votes to overcome the governor's promised veto. At some point NOM and the Church cease to be able to purchase votes in state legislatures. Furthermore, Brown needs to accept the fact that we are a representative form of government for a reason.

Can ONE New Hampshire citizen claim that they have suffered as a result of marriage equality?

The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) today urged the New Hampshire legislature to pass HB 437, compromise legislation to restore civil unions for same-sex couples, and repeal same-sex marriage while protecting couples who have already been "married." The bill's author, Rep. David Bates, has said he will offer an amendment letting voters have the final say on the legislation through a statewide referendum vote.

"Gay billionaires like Tim Gill forced same-sex marriage on the state in 2009 without voters having any say," said Brian Brown, NOM's president. "We urge the legislature to adopt this compromise bill and let the voters have the final say."
