    ERA had a bigger enemy list than Phyllis Schlafly and the Eagle Forum. (this is w/o studying the membership list)

    George Romney (the supposedly liberal Romney), led an effective campaign to stop ERA in Utah, called ERA supporters "moral perverts." Mark Ames writes about it here in his Salt Lake City project at NSFWCorp.

    Not to say that this kind of thing isn't up the Catholic church's alley, and not to bash any progressive LDS community here, the 2012 election did plenty of that. I'm merely linking for the benefit of anyone who wants to know more about the hidden history of Stop ERA movement.
