When gay couples in New York start legally getting hitched July 24, the National Organization for Marriage plans to crash their weddings with a series of protests.



The group, which lobbied against passage of the marriage equality bill signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, announced the rallies Friday on its website. Protests are so far being planned in Albany, Rochester, Buffalo and New York City.



The locations target the four Republican senators who broke with their party and voted to pass the marriage equality bill — Stephen Saland, James Alesi, Mark Grisanti, and Roy McDonald. NOM has pledged to spend $2 million defeating the four in the next election.



In announcing the rally, NOM president Brian Brown repeatedly asked for money.



“Fight back against the GOP betrayal by donating,” suggested Brown. “New York State has no limit on PAC donations (although they are public knowledge if you donate $100 or more). If you really want to show the GOP politicians they made a big mistake in betraying marriage, the sky is the limit.”



Brown claimed “hundreds” had already donated, raising $40,000 so far. As government offices open to begin certifying marriages, protesters are encouraged to hold signs that call for a statewide vote banning others from doing the same.



New York City offices will open at 8:30 a.m. July 24, which is a Sunday, just so gay couples can get married the moment the new law goes into effect. Mayor Michael Bloomberg will officiate at the wedding of two of his employees that day.



*** For certain republickers, the economy isn't so bad, after all, if you can piss away all that money on retaliation.



Great, I'm all for it, here's some gasoline and a box of matches, go burn your money, you fools!!

God knows how many people are without jobs, how many people are losing their homes, their possessions, the shirts on their backs. How many people are starving (surprisingly in a country wrought with obesity.) And yet here they are pissing away $2 million dollars to oust these people because they didn't vote the way they wanted.



Good lord.



I really do think they let success get to their heads. They somehow managed to succeed in getting rid of those state judges in Iowa, and now because of that temporary success, they think they can basically tell every judge, and every senator "Vote our way, or we'll piss away millions of dollars to get you fired."



What a pathetic bunch. But hey, whatever. Let them burn away all their money. Add some more fuel to the fire, burn it faster.

They want to destroy the wedding day of couples?



Pathetic.



Let's see, we have bigots who destroy the saddest days of our lives (funerals of loved ones) and now they're going to try to destroy one of the happiest days of our lives.



I really wish them ill.

This was my first thought exactly Tristan. How far up your own ass do you have to be to participate in such hatred.





Unbelievable.

The gay mafia have never denounced this gratuitous violence by homosexuals against normal Americans exercising their democratic and Constitutional rights.



Strange how these kind of attacks by homosexuals are never discussed in threads about bullying?

Maybe the Phelps whackos could coordinate their efforts with NOM. I'm sure God would bless them both.
