Good, we'll probably find out that they lied about all the names. They lie about other things. For instance, that gays marrying would undermine the sanctity of marriage and be a detriment to society.
If we voted against anything they wanted, you bet they'd be after our names!
Stick it to 'em!

Those people at NOM wouldn't know the truth if it bit Maggie Gallagher in her extremely gluttonous behind.

I can't wait to see what new fodder we get from their list of "donors."

This was just the trial court ruling, the next step of course NOM's appeal of this ruling, followed by their appeal of the future Appeals Court ruling to the State Supreme Court, followed by a trip to the Federal District Court for an appeal of that ruling only to be followed, in order, by a three judge panel on the Federal Court of Appeals, then a hearing by the full court with a last but not least trip before the Supremes. If NOM plays their cards right, it could be another six or seven years before the state finally gets a chance to finally look at their books to see where the money came from and why. But if course, everything NOM does is above board and they have absolutely nothing to hide....

Democracy can't really operate behind a veil of secrecy. If people really feel that strongly about relegating a group to 2nd class status, then they should be asked to stand up when they make that statement, and not hide behind anonymity. NOM might as well be wearing white hoods and robes... now there's another group that was most effective when its membership was kept secret.
