Brian Brown: Why can't those 'perverse' gays stick to designing Rose Parade floats?

by Jeremy Hooper

He's had an awful year. Like truly terrible. I, possessor of both an active imagination and NOM-initiated gag reflex, could not have scripted a worse year for his org.

To make things a little sweeter for Brian, we tried to offer him some lovely flowers. He's choosing to crap on those too:

Screen Shot 2013-12-31 At 2.44.33 PmFormer San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsome [sic] once famously said of gay ‘marriage,’ ‘This door’s wide open now; it’s going to happen whether you like it or not.’

“Unfortunately, his words have proven to be all too true. The decision to allow two gay couples to ‘marry’ on a float during the Rose Parade denigrates this once family-friendly event. It’s another ‘in your face’ example that should serve as a teachable moment for the American people. Once marriage is redefined to make it genderless, this perverse construct of ‘marriage’ is forced on everyone. Just as unsuspecting children watching the Rose Parade will be exposed to the spectacle of men ‘marrying’ men with the attendant public hugging and kissing, so too will American children be told in school that marriage as the union of one man and one woman is bigoted and discriminatory. Those who think that the ongoing marriage debate doesn’t affect them should rethink their position. Once marriage is redefined to make it genderless, it’s going to be foisted on every American no matter the historic truth of marriage. The record is replete with examples of people who have been punished for refusing to support genderless marriage. At least with the Rose Parade, parents watching on television are forewarned and can simply change the channel – although families who long ago made plans to travel to the event will have to either abandon their plans or be forced to endure this political spectacle. We urge Americans to demand that their political leaders change the legal channel to make sure true marriage is protected and preserved
.”

NOM prez Brian Brown (*who has spent the past two weeks claiming that pushback against Phil Robertson limits his free speech, even as he heads an organization that pushes back against any and everything that supports gay people's most basic freedom. Hypocrite.)
