Equality supporters outnumber anti-gay NOM as it stays in the parking lot in Sioux City
August 03, 2010
Let’s just point out the obvious: the National Organization for Marriage could take a few lessons in community organizing from the LGBT community and our allies.
As NOM’s Summer for Marriage tour made its 15th stop today in Sioux City, Iowa, according to a hand count from our friends at NOMTourTracker, 53 NOM supporters gathered in a parking lot (for the third time on this tour!) for yet another “One Man, One Woman” marriage rally.
Meanwhile, One Iowa continued its successful five city “Stand Proud, Vote Proud” tour in Sioux City, as 64 supporters of equality celebrated Iowa’s inclusion of all families.
Despite being in a state that recognizes the freedom of all loving and committed couples to marry, NOM’s speakers dehumanized gay families by claiming 'There is no such thing as same-sex marriage.'
The “Stand Proud, Vote Proud” tour wraps up this week with stops in Waterloo and Iowa City:
Wednesday, August 4, 11:00 a.m.?
Waterloo Public Library?
415 Commercial Street, Waterloo???
Thursday, August 5, 11:00 a.m.
