Audio: NOM president, wizard of using illusion to make donors' money disappear, concocts latest fake victory

by Jeremy Hooper

Desperate for something resembling a win here in a fight where he experiences few, National Organization For Marriage president Brian Brown is trying to spin the Supreme Court's decision to stay the Utah marriage decision while the 10th Circuit considers it as if it's some sort of "victory" for his side. Clip comes from Catholic radio:

SOURCE: The Drew Mariani Show, 1/6/14

In truth, Brian and Co. have won absolutely nothing. In fact, since so many same-sex couples married under Utah law (and now receive federal benefits) that we now move to higher courts with an even more compelling case for full equality. Sure, we have to suffer yet another pause button, one of many that have annoyed our progress. But a pause is not a loss. Oftentimes it's the slow, measured, careful move that comes with the biggest reward.
