As equality grows, so too will Brian Brown's hyperbole

by Jeremy Hooper

From Brian Brown's weekly NOM newsletter comes this, an ad hominem strike at the "audacity" and "meanness" of gay people's supposedly "strange new god":

What gay-marriage advocates are now doing is trying to make gay marriage into a "sacred value," something every American is bound to uphold.

The broad and deep traditions of the American republic are being co-opted into making a strange new god of gay marriage.

This is an amazing process to watch unfold, the audacity of it and, in the end, the meanness of it.

Oh, and there's also this, the idea that gay activists are engaging in both a "perverse" and "corrupt" effort:

Emory even released a study this January which showed that "sacred values" are actually processed in the brain differently from ordinary values.

Hence the deliberate and strategic effort described by the Los Angeles Times, and evidenced by our Massachusetts anti-Christie Harvard protestor, to make acceptance of gay marriage mandatory by raising it to the level of a "sacred value."

Perverse, I know. Corrupt, I would also argue. It's part of what we are called to face and fight in these times in which we live.

All concluding in this, the admission that the National Organization For Marriage is really hoping to push the org's personal religious views into public policy:

Here at NOM we are very busy, winning impossible victories for your genuinely sacred values—for the rights that are given to us not by government but from the hand of our Creator Himself.

Careful, Brian: Both your desperation and true agenda are starting to show.
