NOM strategy ‘reprehensible and pathetic’
The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force responded to reports of racially-charged documents from the anti-LGBT organization, National Organization for Marriage (NOM). The internal strategy memos show the organization’s plans to “drive a wedge” between the LGBT movement and African American and Latino/a communities on the issue of marriage equality.
National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Executive Director Rea Carey said today:
NOM’s strategy of attempting to drive a wedge between Americans is reprehensible and pathetic. It is a strategy that throws fuel on the flames of racism. We stand against any effort to divide, to bring out the worst in people, to weaken and degrade our common humanity.
