Wait a Minute... NOM Congratulates Serial Cheater Newt Gingrich?

Yes, this is Newt
This is so funny. How can a group based on protecting marriage, shake hands with a man who made a mockery of marriage?

Read this joke of a press release:
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Brian Brown, the president of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) today congratulated GOP presidential contender Newt Gingrich on his victory in the South Carolina primary.

"NOM congratulates Newt Gingrich on his impressive come-from-behind victory in South Carolina." said Brown. "We have had three different victors in state contests thus far — Rick Santorum in Iowa, Mitt Romney in New Hampshire and now Newt Gingrich in South Carolina. What all these states have in common is that they have picked candidates who have signed NOM's Marriage Pledge. They are all winners and NOM supports each of them."

Gingrich, Santorum and Romney have each signed NOM's Marriage Pledge, which commits signatories, if elected, to taking specific steps toward preserving the institution of marriage as the union between one man and one woman. Rep. Ron Paul is the only remaining Republican presidential candidate not to have signed the pledge, and he is not considered to have any realistic chance of becoming the Republican nominee.

"It is now clear that the Republican Party will nominate a candidate who is strongly committed to preserving marriage as the union of one man and one woman," Brown said. "We have succeeded in making the preservation of marriage a key issue in this race, and we will continue to do so throughout the primary season, and into the general election against President Obama."
This is hypocritical and against everything NOM stands for. We should note this moment as the day NOM forgot who they are.

Young Newt looks like Dwight Schrute.

Lets see, it's January of 2012 and the Republican party still doesn't have any cohesiveness yet.

Either Romney or Gingrich might get the nod because Santorum is just too far out on the fringe.

In either case, it virtually assures that President Obama gets a second term.

NOM is, for lack of better words, staffed by bigots and morons.

Lets start with the name of the organization, the National Organization FOR Marriage. By associating with Gingrich we now know what kind of marriage they're for.

Sorry, you can only cloak bigotry for so long before we know your true colors.
