"NOM To Endorse Donor Mitt Romney"
The National Organization for Marriage — which has been using race as a wedge in the marriage debate — will endorse presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney this morning, Politico reports. “Now is the time for all people who recognize the importance of marriage to come together to support a true champion, Mitt Romney, against an incumbent who has done virtually everything in his power to undermine the institution of marriage,” the group’s President Brian Brown will say in a statement.
NOM is funded by the Catholic Church hierarchy and its affiliates like the Knights of Columbus. Following the now-infamous memos leak, LGBT equality groups have called on the Church to immediately stop supporting NOM and its “race-baiting, ethnic exploitation, division, and anti-gay campaigns.”
