NOM's hurtful voices: 'One hand, one woman' edition

by Jeremy Hooper

brad-brandonEarlier this year, Minnesota Pastor Brad Brandon told a group of "traditional marriage" supporters that gay activists are teaching kids how to flog their logs:

Brandon, a young pastor from the Hastings area, was among several dozen people who showed up for the rally on Thursday afternoon. He fired up the crowd by saying that homosexuals teach kids to masturbate.
...
He said he was at the Capitol a few weeks ago. “A group of homosexuals were here and they were teaching a group of high school students that masturbation was okay right here in this rotunda! This must stop!

He added, “We are the last stand.”

Now today, this same Mr. Brandon is helping NOM get its own rocks off in St. Paul, joining in on the organization's latest marriage tour stop:

Saint Paul, Minnesota
Summer for Marriage Tour Stop:
Wednesday, July 28, 2010 from 12:00pm – 1:00pm
Minnesota State Capitol
St. Paul, MN 55155

Speakers:
Brian Brown, President, National Organization for Marriage
Bishop Bob Battle, Senior Pastor of Berean Church of God in Christ
Chuck Darrell, Director of Communications, Minnesota Family Council
Father Mike Becker, Archdiocese of Minneapolis St. Paul
Pastor Brad Brandon, KKMS Radio
Pastor Sam Crabtree, Bethlehem Baptist Church
Saint Paul, Minnesota [NOM]

"Gays want your kids to Pat the Robertson": It's all just more unsubstantiated silliness from the epic FAIL known as the NOM tour.

But then again, when you look at their rallies and consider how few people have been coming, perhaps someone should be teaching NOM followers how to self-stimulate!
