NOM Vows to Overturn DC Marriage


Moments after the Washington, D.C., council voted to pass the district's marriage equality bill, the National Organization for Marriage tweeted this: "NOM VOWS TO DC COUNCIL: We Will Overturn Your Same-Sex Marriage Bill."

The tweet was accompanied by a link to a press release saying the fight is not over.

"We have one message for David Catania and the rest of these politicians today: this fight is not over," Brian Brown, executive director of the National Organization for Marriage, said in the statement. "We will go to Congress, we will go to the courts, we will fight for the people's right to vote and we will win!"

NOM boasts in the release of leading successful campaigns to "protect marriage" across the country, including its involvement in the passage of California's Proposition 8 and Maine's Question 1, which repealed marriage equality in those states, and the recent vote against marriage equality in the New York senate.

National Organization for Marriage president Maggie Gallagher crashed a gay rights rally in D.C.'s Dupont Circle in November after marriage equality was repealed at the polls in Maine. Directly following the vote in Maine, Gallagher vowed NOM would turn its attentions to another state that has entered the marriage debate: New Jersey.
