Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), on Thursday promised supporters big wins against gay marriage now that a law has been signed in Hawaii.

After the obligatory pledge to hold legislators who “betrayed the voters accountable on Election Day,” Brown attempted to turn the defeat for his group into a fundraising opportunity by promising that brighter days lay ahead for opponents.

“There is a silver lining now that Hawaii has voted to redefine marriage against the people's wishes: Same-sex 'marriage' activists have run out of easy targets,” Brown said. “This was the last state where Democrats held the governorship and both houses of the Legislature – the only type of state where they have been able to prevail by legislative action. (West Virginia is governed by Democrats but we are in no danger of their socially-conservative politicians redefining marriage.) Thus the false narrative of 'inevitability' ends here – with your help!”

“The fight for marriage goes on – we anticipate state-wide fights in Ohio, Indiana and up to half a dozen other states next year. These are fights we can win – and win big – halting the temporary momentum same-sex 'marriage' activists have built up by eking out extremely narrow victories in the bluest of states … but only if we have the resources to fight.”

It must be noted that Brown conveniently forgot to mention New Mexico and Oregon – states which are likely to legalize gay marriage in the next 12 months.
