National Organization for Marriage begs for money while blaming media for scandal

Editor's note - It's one of those two post mornings. After reading this, pan down and read how actor Kirk Cameron forgets about his so-called Christian principles in order to promote his movie.

Knowing fully well that attempts to explain its race-baiting scandal is failing, the National Organization for Marriage is attempting to use the scandal in order to raise money. From its blog today:

Dear Marriage Supporter,

Will you please make one URGENT gift right now to help protect marriage?

When the New York Times and other media outlets ran with a ridiculous narrative about NOM being racially divisive and politically poisonous, I have to admit, I was angry—but not surprised.

After all, in the middle of this artificially created media flurry, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and their allies at the Huffington Post published stolen IRS documents from NOM that are protected by federal laws.

This is what we're up against...every single day. I don't know if there is a limit to how low radical same-sex marriage activists will go to get what they want—no matter what you and I think.

Our coalition of Americans from every walk of life, regardless of race or religion has won tremendous victories for marriage. And with 2012 being such a critical year, our opponents are desperate to divide us.

We must stand up and fight back...we must make our voices heard...we must make sure the lies of radical same-sex marriage activists don't become commonly accepted "truth" because nobody is working to expose their lies.

And that's exactly why I launched this campaign to raise $200,000 by April 17.

Won't you please make an IMMEDIATE gift of $1,000, $500, $100 or even $50
to help protect marriage—knowing that your donation will be matched by another
to double its impact?

So according to NOM, the scandal was created by the media, most specifically The New York Times and The Huffington Post teaming up with the Human Rights Campaign.

And of course NOM's plea for money wouldn't be complete without the photo of various functions highlighting the African-Americans and members of the Hispanic community who supports NOM's efforts have been exploited by NOM:

The only thing that comes to mind is I hope those folks didn't sign a release. That way, maybe they can get NOM to pay them for the use of their images.

The people who run NOM have no shame. They lie, and lie, and lie. Makes me ashamed to be in the same species.
