Speaking of NOM - The Gorsuchistry Continues

National Organization for Marriage
The email Monday from Brian S. Brown, leader of National Organization for Marriage is titled “Neil Gorsuch Sworn in as Associate Justice of US Supreme Court.”:

Lies, Lies and More Lies:

NOM did everything we could, and expended substantial funds, to promote the confirmation of Justice Gorsuch, and it's incredibly rewarding to savor this victory. But we cannot rest on this accomplishment and must ready ourselves for battles that are already taking shape.
What? They sent out a few emails? And that, we are to believe, represents the expenditure of “substantial funds?” Give it a rest Mr. Brown.

You just know what is coming next:
But first, we need to replenish our resources so that we are once again in a strong position. That's why I am asking you make a generous financial contribution today so that we have the funds needed to be successful in meeting new challenges and taking advantage of new opportunities.

I'll donate $15 today to ensure NOM is ready for what's next
I'll donate $25 today to ensure NOM is ready for what's next
I'll donate $50 today to ensure NOM is ready for what's next
I'll donate $75 today to ensure NOM is ready for what's next
I'll donate $100 today to ensure NOM is ready for what's next
I'll donate $250 today to ensure NOM is ready for what's next
I'll donate $500 or more today to ensure NOM is ready for what's next
There are links at each of those “I'll donate” lines. It gets worse:
The next nomination could come in just a matter of months. Justice Gorsuch was one of several judges on a list of conservative jurists from which President Trump has pledged all his picks will come. If that holds true — and we believe it will — it is possible that in short order we could have a majority of judges on the Court who would reverse the illegitimate Obergefell ruling redefining marriage.

We need to be ready to fight for a conservative justice to be nominated when the next Supreme Court vacancy arises. That's why it is imperative that we raise the funds needed today to replenish our coffers after the Gorsuch confirmation, and to have the resources in hand to fight for all our issues, whether they play out in Congress, in state legislatures, in the courts or in the court of public opinion.
Of course there is no case making its way through the federal courts that would overturn Obergefell and NOM isn't going to make any difference in who gets seated at the Supreme Court. Brown reads this blog. Maybe he could get his friend and fellow Defender of the Faith©, Robert George, to address Article III standing. Exactly what injury could someone claim to have sustained as a direct result of marriage equality. If Brown or any of his ilk have an answer, I would sure love to hear about it.

This rhetoric of Brown's is just senseless bat crap designed to keep him, his wife and platoon of children clothed and fed. NOM's contributors have to be the biggest “marks” in the history of fund raising.
