Thomas Peters, communications director for National Organization for Marriage reacts to President Obama’s amicus brief in support of the lower courts’ rulings that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional.

We expect the Supreme Court to exonerate the votes of over 7 million Californians to protect marriage. The President is clearly fulfilling a campaign promise to wealthy gay marriage donors. There is no right to redefine marriage in our Constitution.

I seem to recall that Brian Brown clearly stated that President Obama’s advocacy for marriage equality would cost him the election. The President was reelected with 66 million votes (5 million more than his opponent) having stated his position on marriage equality with clarity. There was no room for ambiguity. And didn’t Mitt Romney sign NOM’s Marriage Pledge? What? That doesn’t count because it didn’t go NOM’s way?

“Exonerate” means to absolve someone of blame or fault, usually after having been found guilty. Does that mean that, if the Court finds Proposition 8 unconstitutional, the people of California are guilty? If the Court finds that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional, does that exonerate the 66 million citizens who voted for President Obama? It’s rubbish.

Peters also seems to work (or volunteer) for Fidelis ( and He is not listed as a key employee, an officer or one of the top five paid at NOM so this might be a hobby. We do know that he attended the intellectually abysmal Ave Maria University and it shows.
