Is MN For Marriage campaign about comparing gays to alcoholics, pedophiles & Hitler? Because someone on its payroll has.

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 and local radio host Brad Brandon compared "Satan-influenced" gays to alcoholics, pedophiles, and Hitler, before then saying that we have to "get [gays] saved and get 'em out of that lifestyle." Audio that our pals at Think Progress then put into a handy YouTube video:

So I have to wonder:why is the Minnesota for Marriage campaign, an effort supposedly focused only on civil marriage, compensating this same Brad Brandon to the tune of $3,000?

Are they prepping an ad featuring Brandon? Is he doing paid outreach work? Something else? Only MN For Marriage knows for sure.

What I know is that I've been shocked by all the things I've learned about the MN For Marriage team over the past few weeks and months (more on that later) and that once we get into that heart of this debate, the campaign is going to be working overtime to deny that they really are motivated by personal animus towards homosexuality itself. This aint gonna help them do that.
