Fight Over Gay Marriage Not Over

 — The National Organization for Marriage says it is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to block a federal judge’s order declaring Oregon’s same-sex marriage ban unconstitutional.

The group, which opposes gay marriage, says it filed the request on Tuesday with Justice Anthony Kennedy, who handles such requests from the region that includes Oregon.

Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum has declined to defend the state’s same-sex marriage ban, and U.S. District Judge Michael McShane ordered last week that gays and lesbians be allowed to marry.

The National Organization for Marriage is seeking a stay of that ruling while it appeals an earlier decision that prohibited the group from defending the marriage ban on behalf of its Oregon members.

    The “National Organization for Marriage”, does not only oppose gay marriage as your article blithely puts it – NOM is an anti-gay hate group. That means that their chairman and others, like Brian Brown and Maggie Gallagher, started a non profit ogranization and make obscene paychecks living off the misery of gay people, whose rights they try so hard to take away. Right now there are making any number of desperate attempts to show their contributors that they are actually doing something to deserve the money their base sends in. If you want to know how much Maggie Gallagher, the first person in charge of NOM made in the nascent days of NOM check out this link. The amount might shock you. It’s a practice known as “hate for pay”. The link:×5569466
