Does Minnesota For Marriage liken gays to pedophiles and/or Hitler? Because their pal Brad Brandon does

by Jeremy Hooper

Back when he was appearing on the National Organization For Marriage's summer tour, this site dug up audio in which Pastor Brad Brandon compared "Satan-influenced" gays to alcoholics, pedophiles, and Hitler -- audio that our pals at Think Progress then put into a handy YouTube video:


Speaker At NOM’s ‘Peaceful And Prayerful’ Marriage Tour Has Compared Gays To Pedophiles, Hitler [Think Progress]

Extreme. Offensive. Beyond the pale. And when it comes to the modern marriage movement and its need to seem mainstream: Brandon's "get the homosexuals out of that lifestyle" rhetoric is way, way, waaaaaaay off message.

So why mention it now? Oh, well -- because the coalition that's trying to put a discriminatory marriage ban into the North Star State's constitution just sent Jason Adkins, head of the Minnesota Catholic Conference, to appear on this very same Brad Brandon's very same radio show:

[FLICKR]
201109070857-1
[KKMS Radio]

And most appalling of all? At least half of the two men's conversation was about "not being against any person but being pro-marriage." Go listen in full here.
