Brian S. Brown Reminds Us Just How Special He Can Be

National Organization for Marriage
Today's missive from Brian S. Brown, on behalf of National Organization for Marriage is titled: “Trump Punts – Time To Put The Heat On.” The first paragraph reads:
President Trump has so far failed to deliver on his repeated promises to do everything in his power to protect the religious liberty of people of faith and faith-based groups. The Executive Order he signed last week was empty of any meaningful protections when it comes to those who have been targeted by the government for their beliefs about marriage, gender and human sexuality. Instead, Trump has punted the issue to the Department of Justice which, he says, will develop new rules to protect the religious liberty rights of people and groups.
It is generally impossible to separate Brown's rhetoric from sincere belief and this is no exception. It is clear that Brown was hoping for a license to discriminate. Nevertheless there is nothing that Trump could have done that would have any effect on state and municipal nondiscrimination laws. The couple bakers, the florist and the photographer that we have been hearing about for eight years have run afoul of local law, not the federal government.

When we get to the inevitable it becomes easier to separate the bullshit from the meadow:
Will you make an immediate financial contribution today to help us ramp up pressure on President Trump and the Department of Justice to do what he swore he would do — protect the religious liberty of people of faith?
Exactly what does NOM propose to do? Indeed, precisely what does NOM do day-to-day? It seems to this observer that NOM exists to beg for money to continue to exist so that they can beg for more money.
