Brian Brown: Gays are 'oppressors'

by Jeremy Hooper

The National Organization For Marriage exists for the sole purpose—THE. SOLE. PURPOSE!—of denying gay people of certain civil rights. Brian Brown, NOM's president, has spent his entire professional career working for this purpose, first with the Connecticut Family Institute, where he (unsuccessfully) tried to stop both civil unions and marriage, and now with NOM.

Brian also once encouraged parents to attend an "ex-gay" seminar in order to "prevent your child from embracing this destructive way of life." He's used the NOM newsletter to convince his supporters that there is a link between homosexuality and pedophilia. Oh, and let's forgot those NOM strategy documents that deliberately sought to "drive a wedge between gays and blacks."

But forget all that, you observant person. Because Brian's not the antagonist, you silly head. Ya see, the gay people and allies who are trying to move our nation past this offensive fight are the real meanies, claims Brian:

"We're no longer talking about an oppressed minority being given 'equal rights.' Instead, those who redefine marriage have become the oppressor, crushing liberty, choice and tolerance for other views in the process."

Brian Brown

He (or his ghostwriter) can't even write out equal rights without putting it in smear quotes, yet we are the oppressive ones? Sure, Brian.

What Brian should have said: "We're no longer talking about an oppressive group that simply wants to deny equal rights. Instead, those who message for NOM have become fiction writers, creating ideas, "victims," and scripts out of whole cloth!"
