The National Organization for Marriage's head homo hater is out the door. NOM's Maggie Gallagher is stepping down as President of the organization. NOM Executive Director Brian Brown will take her place according to an entry she wrote for the group's blog. Hey, I can rent a moving truck. Can I be President of NOM next?
NOM began as an idea of mine: America needed a large, national activist organization for marriage, one that is set up to take a hands-one approach to marriage battles wherever they occur... We needed, I was convinced, new models for political engagement among social conservatives on the marriage issue.
NOM became a reality when I found Brian Brown, a brilliant young pro-family activist with a record of achievement in building an organization to fight battles deep in blue states (in his case Connecticut), a passion for marriage, and an amazing dedication. Brian and his wife and then five children left Hartford and moved to Princeton New Jersey, quitting a secure organization for an unknown idea that he too recognized was needed. Six months later, Brian and his family moved again, to southern California to help get Prop 8 on the ballot. This year, he moved his family to Washington D.C. to open up NOM's new national office.
Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out, Maggie. (Picture via fritzliess.com)
