US: Anti-gay marriage group’s lonely Twitter feed shows how far they’ve sunk

The National Organisation for Marriage – once the primary opponent to same-sex marriage in America – can now only find a handful of people to agree with it.

The anti-gay group, led by President Brian Brown, has fallen into a spiral of decline in recent months – which seems to have accelerated after equality became the norm in the majority of states

NOM has taken to posting images opposing same-sex marriage to Twitter and encouraging people to ‘share’ if they agree – with seldom more than a handful doing so.

A recent post said: “In 2015, marriage needs to be reinforced, not redefined. Like and share if you agree” – which attracted just 18 retweets.

A similar update last week, which says “I believe God created marriage between a man and a woman, share if you agree” received support from 26 people.

Blogger Jeremy Hooper also notes that the group’s recent campaign to raise $200,000 by the end of 2014 fell far short, raising just $139,687 in donations.

It isn’t the first financial problem for the group – which saw its funding drop by half in just one year, according to tax filings, ending 2013 more than $2.5 million in debt.

The group also lost $691,025.05 (£430,000) in legal fees last year, after attempting to sue the Internal Revenue Service.
