TBT - NOM's hilarious anti-marriage equality video 'The Gathering Storm'

The infamous 'Gathering Storm' video from a few years back via the for now toothless National Organization for Marriage is very enjoyable to watch in light of the fact that the lgbtq community attained the right to marry in spite of the deceit, spin, and gobs of money which went into keeping it from us. And it should serve to remind all of us during this time that victories aren't won easily, wars aren't over after single fights no matter whether you win or lose, and if you aren't ready the possibility of a long fight, you shouldn't be on the field in the first place.

The only storm is the one started by NOM the their ilk. While this is far from over, it is clear - in no small part due to their declining numbers - that it is becoming increasingly difficult for them to keep up the momentum they once, thought they, had.

If that video were remade today it would seem appropriate that as each person speaks their lines a bolt of lightening should erupt from the gathering clouds and strike them.

I wonder if Brown is still milking a six figure salary. Regardless, perhaps his check can now be described as bilking NOM.
