Video: NOM prez says young people's 'natural rebellion' will turn them against equality

by Jeremy Hooper

During an hourlong webinar with the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, National Organization For Marriage president Brian Brown bemoaned the culture that has made people who hold his view seems like "fuddy duddies." But it's okay because young people's "natural rebellion" of younger people will eventually turn the tide in his favor.

Clip is cued:

Totally, Brian! In fact, I think there's going to be a new kind of Woodstock around the year 2019, where young people will gather in mass to watch Heritage Foundation lectures, get high off the idea of suppressing minority rights, and sit around in drum circles dreaming up ways they can call for a federal marriage amendment that will ultimately invalidate same-sex couples' weddings from coast to coast. MTV will broadcast the whole thing so that those who are at home don't have to miss out on the three day anti-love-in. It will be the hipster event of the decade, marking yet another milestone in a youth counterculture that, while historically standing for less oppression, begins to find the youthful joy in more.

Personally, I can't wait for the great tunes that, as with all youth revolts, will surely accompany this march. "If You're Going To San Francisco, Be Sure to Divorce Some Gays While You're There" will definitely top the charts.
