"...we are confident he will rule to overturn the illegitimate marriage decision."
The National Organization for Marriage is ecstatic at the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch and they cannot wait to overturn same-sex marriage with his help.
The conservative group sent out emails today to congratulate their supporters and thank Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConell for his role in getting Gorsuch his seat.
The statement reads:
“We did it! Thanks to you and so many NOM members and conservative activists across the country, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was able to muster the votes to change Senate rules to allow the Gorsuch confirmation to move forward, and Justice Gorsuch won a bipartisan majority. He now will join the Supreme Court as a worthy successor to the late, great Antonin Scalia.”
Nom says now they can work on reversing marriage equality restoring it to pre-Obama glory.
“This development is a huge boost for NOM and for the prospects of restoring true marriage to our nation's laws by reversing the illegitimate, anti-constitutional Obergefell ruling of 2015 redefining marriage. Justice Gorsuch shares Justice Scalia's judicial philosophy and we are confident he will rule to overturn the illegitimate marriage decision.
“That means we are likely only one vote short of reinstating marriage in our nation, with rumors flying that another Court vacancy could occur soon with the retirement of one of the justices who voted to redefine marriage!”
In the email, co-founder of NOM, Brian S. Brown thanks everyone who made it possible for the confirmation, asking that supporters pray for all the judges and their ability to make wise rulings.
“I am so grateful to the nearly 10,000 NOM members who grabbed an oar and actively worked with us to support Justice Gorsuch's confirmation. Please join me in praying for him, and for all the judges on the Supreme Court, that they be given wisdom and discernment to rule on cases based on the law and the constitution as it exists, not based on their own personal opinion of what the law and constitution should be.
'This great victory shows what we can accomplish together. I look forward to many more victories this year, and in years to come!”
From the beginning of Donald Trump's presidency NOM has eagerly awaited working with him to overturn the SCOTUS ruling on gay marriage. They also were one of the financiers to the anti-trans "Free Speech Bus" which toured the country and was chronically vandalized by angry detractors.
