NOM protester from anti-gay marriage rally from 2010
On Monday in Maine the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) released confidential documents from the National Organization for Marriage (NOM). These documents were shared as evidence in Maine’s ongoing ethics investigation into NOM’s campaign finances.
According to the articles from TruthWinsOut.org and Human Rights Campaign these documents were part of a continuing investigation by the state of Maine. The court-ordered disclosure shows how NOM’s strategy and tactics are racially and ethnically divisive and filled with false political calculations.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, personal opinions may vary on the morality of sexual identity / orientation, but legally everyone must be treated fairly under the law. A law that restricts the freedoms of one group over another will eventually find itself on the wrong side of history, and those opposing same sex marriage will be remembered by history with scorn.
