NOM gets around to begging for money

NOM got around to begging for money today. Mr. Misadventure, Brian S. Brown, head of National Organization for Marriage has come up with yet another reason that people should fork over money to cover his generous compensation plan. That reason would be that NOM is going to force more Republican governors to comply with Brown's wishes which means the wishes of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops. In an email titled “The Politicians Just Don't Get It,” behold the effervescence:
What we've gotten, tragically, is a string of gutless Republican politicians who seek our votes as conservatives but then throw us to the wolves when the pressure is on. Republican governors Mike Pence in Indiana, Dennis Daugaard in South Dakota and Nathan Deal in Georgia are perfect examples of fair-weather, talk-but-no-action Republicans. We must hold them, and others, accountable.

Please renew your support of NOM by making a contribution of $35, $50, $100 or even $250 or more so that we can hold politicians accountable when they betray Christians and people of faith by failing to stand up for important principles.
From that bit of demagoguery it looks like NOM is oh-for-three. But wait. They took credit for something:
NOM fights hard to push back when political leaders abandon us. That's what we did, for example, in North Carolina when the Republican governor vetoed legislation that protected individuals from having to solemnize a gay 'wedding' that violated their religious beliefs. We worked with allies and helped convince North Carolina legislators to override the veto of Governor Pat McCrory.
Just to be clear, this has nothing to do with the anti-LGBT bill that McCrory signed the day it passed (March 23). Brown is referring to this which eventually legalized public officials not serving all of the public. And what did NOM do? Send out some emails? Please.  

Now Brown takes credit for the current anti-LGBT legislation that is going to cost the state millions in tax revenues:
It's amazing what happens when Christians and people of faith unite to demand action, and Governor McCrory is a great example of that. Having had his veto overridden last year, Governor McCrory is now standing strong with us this year in support of common-sense legislation that prevents men from accessing intimate facilities reserved for girls and women, including showers and rest rooms, based on a claim that they "identify" as women. It's only common sense that biology determines gender, not "feelings" and certainly not political correctness. We commend Governor McCrory for his principled stand.
Brown's willful ignorance regarding gender dysphoria makes him spectacularly stupid. He obviously doesn't understand the issue.
