National Organization for Marriage branches out internationally.
East coast based National Organization for Marriage (NOM) has branched off into a sister organization called International Organization for the Family, or IOF.
Founder of NOM Brian S. Brown sent out an email announcement on Saturday, saying the fight to save traditional marriage in the U.S. could be better focused if those same efforts could be handled abroad.
Brown says in an email statement that he has traveled the world to spread the word that marriage should be between one man and one woman and no amount of “extremists” attacks from the Human Rights Campaign will deter him from spreading that message.
He writes: “I want to introduce you to a new organization that will take the global fight to preserve and protect marriage to a whole new level, allowing NOM to be able to focus fully on the continuing fight here at home. It is called the International Organization for the Family (IOF).”
He continues to say in the email that he will still be the leader of NOM as well as take on the presidency at IOF.
“IOF is assembling a coalition of allies to take the worldwide lead in fighting for marriage, religious liberty, parental rights, the truth of gender and other issues central to the pro-family movement.”
Brown is also excited to have the opportunity “to reshape the culture and legal climate for marriage" with the incoming administration.
“We look forward to working with President-Elect Trump, the Congress and our allies in Washington and the states to pursue a wide ranging agenda on behalf of our issues.”
In closing, Brown writes IOF is a great development for the pro-family movement.
“Pease keep IOF in your thoughts and prayers. And please continue to support NOM as we focus all of our efforts on the opportunities in front of us.”
