... why they march

Brian S. Brown
Brian S. Brown, on behalf of the anti-LGBT National Organization for Marriage, has sent out an email titled: ...why we March. According to Brown:
Someone asked me the other day why we are going to the time and trouble to expend substantial financial and human resources on the upcoming 2017 March for Marriage. It's a good question, and I have a simple answer: Because we must.
It is unlikely that anyone asked Brown the question. More importantly, the reason NOM stages these silly marches is in the hope that they can raise more money off of them than they expend on the event. The "march" itself serves no purpose. Demonstrations are supposed to influence others. Neither NOM nor its purpose will influence anyone.

NOM's purpose, at the outset, was to thwart marriage equality. They failed to do so while acceptance of same-sex marriage continues to rise. In effect, NOM continues to roll downhill in public approval.

Brown likely doesn't believe that the rising support for marriage equality really exists. Brown is a Knight Templar - a Catholic extremist whose truth is defined, not by reality, but by the pronouncements of the Vatican eunuchs. He continues with more BS:
The March for Marriage is a tremendously important opportunity for us, and we need your support to make it a success. Will you make an immediate financial contribution to help? Every dollar you give will be matched by a generous donor, doubling the impact of your gift.
Hand out much? We should give Brown a cup and some pencils. Furthermore, matching donations are a scam. They do not exist as expressed and are merely the restructuring of donations that have been promised or already received. Brown has become so accustomed to lying that he no longer bothers to assess truthfulness. He will say whatever he thinks people want to hear in order to pony up. The holier-than-thou crowd has become quite adept at dishonesty.

But that was merely an hors d'oeuvre of malodorous fare:
We must continue the fight to restore marriage in our nation's laws. We must provide legal protections for all those who believe in the truth of marriage as the union of one man and one woman. We must prevent politicians and the courts from redefining gender in the law. And we must demand that our constitutionally-guaranteed religious liberty right be protected and enforced.
Same-sex marriage is settled law. Even Gorsuch says that is the case. Even if there were the possibility of a case overturning Obergefell NOM would have nothing to do with it. Donations to NOM are irrelevant to the matter.

Just because the Pope denies the existence of gender dysphoria and transgender people does not mean that they do not exist. The Pope has no applicable training and experience. Equal protection for trans citizens will continue to expand with the acceptance of the medical science. The Catholic Church has no say in the matter.

Calling for the defense of constitutionally protected speech and free exercise of religion presupposes that they are at risk. Nothing could be further from the truth. These folks insist that they should be the beneficiaries of Christian privilege. They seek free imposition.
The March for Marriage is a tremendously important opportunity for us, and we need your support to make it a success.
Send NOM more money to piss away. Brown has eight or nine kids to feed. What this is all about in a nutshell (and some hyperlinks):

Why am I so critical? It is important to remember that every dime that goes to NOM (regardless of how the money is actually spent) is intended to diminish the rights of LGBT citizens. In other words: ...why we fight NOM's agenda.
