Audio: Threats, Brian? You mean like the one waged against Abbott & Assoc. (and how ever many more)?

by Jeremy Hooper

During his recent appearance on Charles LiMandri's Catholic radio show, NOM president Brian Brown said this about his role in history and the "threats" he and his cronies supposedly faced for choosing this "historic" role in backing discrimination:

Victim, victim, victim. Except what's weird is that we remember the Prop 8 conversation. We were there in the fall of 2008, talking. Talking about love. About equality. About why a majority's personal, largely faith-based whims should not role back a minority's civil rights. And while our side was saying all of these things, it was the Protect Marriage coalition (of which NOM was a huge part) that we saw doing the true threatening. And we don't mean only those threats that they were waging against gay families, American values, increased Crate & Barrel registries, and unity in general. No, no -- we also mean the literal threats they waged against businesses that simply donated in a way they saw unfit:

Weird how these Prop 8 proponents always forget about this little nugget. Must just be an oversight. Right?

Good thing we've preserved it. You know -- history, and all that.
