Video: Brown vs. Board of Educated Equality Supporters

by Jeremy Hooper

Yesterday in Manhattan, as part of The New Yorker Festival, pro-equality attorney David Boies, Log Cabin Republican president R. Clarke Cooper, Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson, and long-suffering Carrie Bradshaw sounding board Miranda Hobbes (a.k.a Gifted actress and activist Cynthia Nixon) took on the responsibility of defending marriage equality in a world that still wastes time turning certain unions into a needlessly contentious matter. On the other side of the coin was National Organization for Marriage president Brian Brown, a heterosexual person who continued to muddy the waters of fairness so that this overwrought issue continues to waste everyone's time, even though it's something that would not really affect his life, marriage, or family even one iota.

We're not free to embed the whole shebang (which you can buy for yourself for just under 5 bucks). But we can show you a brief clip wherein Cynthia is forced to channel the same "ugh, what are you thinking?!" skills that she used when Carrie was carelessly sleeping with Big while he was still married to Natasha:

**SEE ALSO: NOM's tweets from the event.

(reverse chronology)

Brian does know that it's only a "lion's den" because he won't tame his roar, right?
