Liars, Incorporated

Brian Brown, the head bigot at the hate group National Organisation for Man-Lady-Only marriage, is once again caught lying in this video in which he faces New York state legislator Daniel O’Donnell, who succeeded in getting marriage equality through New York’s lower house—several times.

Brian lies about adoption, even though marriage laws have nothing to do with adoption. He lied and said that in Illinois, adoption agencies “were told” they’d have to comply with the state’s new law—even though Illinois has civil unions, not marriage. But aside from getting his facts wrong, he bald-faced, outright lied about that: The truth is that adoption agencies run by the Roman Catholic Church—which actively lobbied against the Civil Union law—have decided to grandstand on the issue by pre-emptively saying they intend to abandon these homeless children, turning them over to the care of the State of Illinois. The state has done NOTHING, the Roman Catholic Church is playing stupid, crass and heartless political games at children’s expense.

Not coincidentally, the Roman Catholic Church in New York has also been politically active lobbying against marriage equality. As this video mentions, New York City’s archbishop made some of the dumbest arguments against it I’ve heard anywhere, that enacting marriage equality would make the US just like North Korea. Similarly, it would of course mean it would turn apples into hot dogs.

O’Donnell pointed out—correctly—that there have never been any “negative” consequences from marriage equality. This is why Brown, his group and the rest of the anti-gay industry lie all the time: They have nothing rational or truthful to use in argument against marriage equality—because there is no rational, secular argument that they can make.

I have to admit that I laughed out loud toward the end of the video when poor, little Bry-Bry whines and whinges about being called a bigot, him and his group, too. Well, I have some advice for Brian and his hurt feelings: If you don’t want to be called a bigot, then stop acting like a bigot. It’s that simple and easy, Brian.

Really, you can almost detect the rancid air of desperation in the increasingly hysterical screaming of the anti-gay industry. The tide has turned against them, and they know it. They know their luck has run out, and they’re kicking and screaming all the way to oblivion.

Well, not oblivion, exactly: I’m sure they’re find some other group to demonise and lie about so they can continue to raise millions of dollars to fund their luxury lifestyle choices. It's what they do.
