They just don't get it. Personal liberty and freedom includes the right to marry whomever you like. This is not the governments business. This move also guarantees that marriage equality will be on the ballot the year

Spend more money on the Uber "NO" conservative who will lose to a moderate liberal. Great idea........

The people voted last election. They lost let people of all sexualities marry whomever they want. It doesn't bother me one bit. It generates more revenue anyways. I believe in religion however Catholics should maybe worry more about priests abusing children than gays marrying.

Another one of those supposedly caring GOP pacs. It will be so nice to see them waste their money on this fight. Perhaps we can get them to waste millions instead of hundreds of thousands.

I can never understand those who scream for "small government" are out to have the government involved in more and more regulation. In any case, I can never understand how allowing two people of the same sex can affect my heterosexual marriage. Why do people have to hate some one to feel a cohesive group of conservatives? The Bible was used to justify slavery. Now the Bible is being used to hate Gays. Social conservatives should worry about their own life and happiness rather than poking their nose in other people's bedrooms.

The GOP needs to distance themselves from the Christian Taliban. Smaller, less intrusive government does not allow for DOMA.

NOM reminds me of the New York Yankees...diminishing influence, dwindling relevance, deep pockets, going to lose (again).

As a gay person I find it scary that there is such sizable group of people that is so against me entering a consensual marriage to a person of the sex I am attracted to. Live your life and let me live mine, please!

This threat should be taken seriously. This group knows how to get Republicans defeated.

This is no surprise. Since these people know they can't succeed by arguing the merits of their case (there aren't any) they resort to threats and the political equivalent of extortion.
