Arisha Michelle Hatch, our NOMTourTracker.com lead, met Maggie Gallagher, a founder of NOM, today. We’ve got video of their first encounter.
Why was Maggie in Columbus today? To take over for Brian Brown, at least from what she said.
Money quote: “I’m not Brian’s keeper.”
Maggie’s message to NOM’s minions: “Hate is not a family value.” Hypocrisy much?
Of course, love IS a family value, and marriage is our society’s method of officially recognizing love and partnership between two people.. That’s why we support marriage equality.
UPDATE BY EDEN: Anthony just uploaded this overview of today, including a bunch of sights and sounds. This video includes:
1) Another interview with Maggie Gallagher, who claims she doesn’t know what the NOM Tour Tracker is — after all, she’s “not a big blogger” — and repeats that she’s “not Brian’s keeper.”
2) Footage of the counter-protest
3) An interview with Erin and Michelle, a sweet lesbian couple that approached the rally and were stopped by a police officer.
Check out the video and let us know what your favorite moment is — and favorite quote.
