This is not snark – This is NOM’s actual email header

Brian Brown is beginning to sound more and more like Oral Roberts who infamously claimed that if he did not raise $8 million within three months then “God will call me home.” Brown isn’t that nutty but the grift is the same. In any event, as a former CEO, the last think you ever want to admit to (other than having put the 401K in the hands of Bernie Madoff) is being panicked. Brown even writes “I am freaking out.” Now that is a confidence builder. Who the fuck wants to give money to someone in a panic freaking out?

Friends — I just met with my team and learned we are seriously behind our fundraising goals for the first half of the year, which ends at midnight on Thursday.

In fact, unless we get contributions from 3,050 supporters in the next 48 hours I’m going to have to cut our budget right as we head into one of the most important periods ever for the fight for marriage and religious liberty.

You can make a difference! Donate Today!

I have to be honest, we’ve never been in a bigger hole and I am freaking out. In the past, we had reserves saved up to help cushion a shortfall, but our reserves are gone.

They could be broke. Why would people fund an organization that has been a complete and utter failure?

Not only are we looking at major fights in the next few months, including pushing for passage of the First Amendment Defense Act, but we’re headed into the slowest time of year for fundraising as families take time off for vacations and travel.

Liar. FADA is DOA. It cannot get out of committee. There is nothing that NOM can do to change that.
