NOM's Brian Brown Plays the Victim Card

NOM's Brian Brown Plays the Victim Card


The president of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) wants the followers of his organization to believe that at the heart of marriage equality is a desire to oppress religious people.

In his weekly post on the NOM blog, Brian Brown writes that the fight for same-sex marriage is far more devious than it seems:

"The mask of tolerance has been cast aside. We are looking into the face of a movement which wants, in the name of equality, to take away your rights and the rights of millions of decent, loving, law-abiding Americans who 'cling' -- yes, I'm not afraid to call it that! -- to God, common sense, and the best of America's long traditions of respect for Judeo-Christian values."

While the fight is certain to be a fierce one, Brown reassures his readers that the intolerance of gay people is combatable, that those in favor of marriage equality "can only win if they can get us to accept and internalize the second-class status they propose for us. To accept our own marginalization, to be quiet, to stand down and keep our heads down. To live in fear, instead of acting, with courage, out of hope."

How? With the help of "fearless leaders" like Michele Bachmann who know "God's truth about marriage" and will not give in to the intimidation tactics presented by the gay community.

Finally, having attempted to instill fear in his supporters, Brown ends his message of hope with a request for money: "Can you act today to defend marriage for your children and grandchildren? Whether you can give $20 or $200 -- or perhaps a monthly donation of just $10 -- know that you are making a difference, and your voice will be heard."
