Just wondering if anyone knows what NOM stands for? :confused: I was reading some comments regarding Mormons and their views on same sex marriage. In the same sentence, the person also stated that the Vatican funds NOM. Not sure what the person was was talking about.:shrug:
I am not sure what your friend is talking about either. However, NOM (in this context) stands for National Organization for Marriage. They are a pressure group which was founded to oppose same-sex marriage.
The current president is Brian Brown and his predecessor was Maggie Gallagher. Both occasionally make appearances on US cable TV news commentary programs.
NOM might be best known for producing a widely mocked commercial called "The Gathering Storm." In the commercial, which went public a few years ago, a group of stern looking people stand on a barren landscape as storm clouds roil and lightning flashes behind them. In the commercial, each person takes turn in making solemn pronouncements about the threat of same-sex marriage.
