DC partner of Bob Vander Plaats and Tamara Scott has a new anti-marriage equality march buddy: Wiley Drake, who famously prayed for Obama to die

The National Organization for Marriage, which contributed up to $100,000 in matching funds to the failed campaign by Iowans For Freedom to remove Iowa Supreme Court Justice David Wiggins from the bench, is now trying to organize a "March for Marriage" in Washington D.C. on March 26 as the Supreme Court considers arguments in both the Prop 8 and DOMA cases, which both involve gay marriage. For information about the real DC marriage equality march, go here.
     The number of NOM facebook "likes" for its campaign is decidedly underwhelming, so it is now trying to convince people of burgeoning support by tallying the number of online invitations it has extended rather than the number of people who have actually committed to showing up.
     One who HAS committed to NOM's march is former Southern Baptist Convention second vice-president Wiley Drake, who garnered notoriety after referring to President Obama as an evil illegal alien and praying for him to die.

Drake was recruited by Allegra Herburt-Hewell, one of the organizers behind the NOM march and in her free time an employee of Robert George's American Principles Project, whose heartland tentacles include Shane Vander Hart, who benignly refers to himself as a conservative Christian blogger.

In 2012, gay mom Janet Jenkins filed a civil RICO racketeering lawsuit against several employees of Liberty University for conspiring to kidnap her daughter, who is now somewhere in Nicaragua. The pastor involved in the case has been sentenced to 27 months in prison. The lawsuit notes that they were signatories to George's Manhattan Declaration.
