"We've just learned that gay marriage supporters in North Carolina have been stockpiling mountains of cash. It's looking almost certain that in the final days before the election, they will launch an all-out air war, blanketing North Carolina TV and radio with ads full of lies and misinformation about the Marriage Protection Amendment - using scare tactics to maximum effect before we have a chance to respond... the only way we can fight back is if we have the resources to get our message out to voters. In a fair fight, the truth will prevail - but without the resources to mount an aggressive ad campaign of our own, it won't be a fair fight."
-- National Organization for Marriage spokesman Brian Brown whining to supporters that they need cash to fight for a marriage amendment in North Carolina. NOM has spent untold millions to fight these battles across the nation thanks to being bankrolled heavily by the Catholic Church and the Mormons - two of the wealthiest churches in America. They're hardly suffering for lack of funds.
