Brian Brown co-opts Iroquois longview for his own LGBT-excluding worldview

by Jeremy Hooper

The National Organization For Marriage's president is deeply concerned about future generations. That is, future generations who are not LGBT, raised by LGBT parents, or supportive of the LGBT-inclusive reality of our Earth:

6A00D8341C503453Ef017Ee73Fdcfb970D-1As I think of our nation's children, I'm reminded of an old Iroquois Indian saying, along the lines of, "We will never make a tribal decision until we debate the effects out to the seventh generation; even if it means having skin as thick as the bark of a pine tree."

Today you can walk into the grocery store and buy "Seventh Generation" cleaning products and even diapers because it is only right to be concerned about the environment we are going to leave the "seventh generation."

How much more important is the social world we will leave the "seventh generation" of children? Will we leave them a world of husbands and wives, mothers and fathers? Or will these things be meaningless to future generations of American children?

National Organization for Marriage president Brian Brown

The more likely truth is that this world, seven generations from now, will be one that looks back on this early 21st century "culture war" against certain kinds of human beings with the sort of pointed disdain that such a discriminatory fight deserves. How lucky they will be!!
