NOM defector tells all

So, Louis Marinelli, the NOM operative who has defected to our side, has more to say about NOM (the National Organization for Marriage). It's worth reading the whole thing, which concludes
I am sharing this with you because I want you to realize that NOM is a small group of devoutly religious Catholics supported by a couple of undisclosed sources. NOM is essentially made up of Brian Brown, its President, Maggie Gallagher, the CEO, a handful of other Board members (who are scattered across the country involved in other matters), a couple of advisors to Mr. Brown and a small and largely incompetent office staff.

Their social media management isn’t operated by NOM – they’re not big enough for that nor do they understand social media! As Jeremy Hooper detailed, Opus Fidelis manages NOM’s social media and websites.

That is all that is standing between you and the freedom to marry. There is no grassroots opposition. While they have proven to be quite successful over the past couple years, I think it’s time to put NOM’s size into perspective. Are you going to let a handful of fringe Catholics (with whom many Catholics disagree on marriage) stand between you and the freedom to marry?

Louis is also dishing the dirt on NOM's propaganda strategy, also dependent on right-wing Roman Catholic operatives. And let's not forget that this is a fringe group of Catholics, who actually are the religious group most supportive of marriage equality.
