New York Marriage Equality: Astroturfing – Courtesy of the Same Ten (Mormon) People

Posted on 18 May 2009 by Chino Blanco

In her report on the New York “pro-marriage” rally, Mormon blogger (and Digital Network Army director) Angela Rockwood (aka Beetle Blogger) suggests that if you are a New Yorker, you’ll want to know about these sites:

New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms

New Yorkers Family Research Foundation

For once, I agree with Angela: If you’re a New Yorker, please take her advice and check out both sites.

I did. Here’s what I found:

Shared contact info (NYCF’s details on the left, NYFRF’s details on the right):

Not only did both organizations opt to locate in Spencerport, NY, they also somehow wound up sharing the same fax machine?

Moving on to WHOIS details:

Whereas Spencerport, NY is apparently doing some great deals on cheap PO boxes and shared fax lines … Provo, Utah’s must be offering the best deals in the country when it comes to wingnut web hosting.

What does it all mean? I’d suggest it means, that behind the scenes, it’s the same ten (generously-funded) people coordinating (online) opposition to marriage equality.

Notice the same lame DNA logo at both the New Yorkers Family Research Foundation and the New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms websites?

Notes from a previous campaign (courtesy WikiLeaks):

STP. Not an exclusively Mormon problem. We’re all suffering on account of the Same Ten (Misguided) People.

If you’ve got a sec, please drop a comment over at Angela’s place.

    New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedom and New Yorkers Family Research Council are not only hosted in Provo, but are based out of Orem, Utah. Neither of them are from New York, neither do any research, and Neither have likely even read the NY State Constitution. They are both, however, based out of the same Orem, UT zip code, 84097!

    Imagine that, Mormons being less than truthfull … again?!? Unbelievable!

    Those pesky commandments about not lying and not bearing false witness, well those are flexible. Just don’t be gay or have two dads or two moms! That’s a ticket straight (or gay) to hell!

    W Scott Simpson, yet another Mormon, wrote the most defiling, immoral, and disgusting legal brief I’ve ever read. Thank you Obama! You are a lying piece of garbage.

Targeting Mormons Unfair?

Equality California estimates that Mormons donated as much as $20 million to Prop. 8, while the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic fraternal group, gave $1.25 million to the effort and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, $200,000.
