Brian Brown Vs Log Cabin Republicans
"NOM did not create the divide between blacks and homosexual marriage advocates, and standing for marriage is not standing for division or discrimination. Nor is it patronizing for media leaders to treat the heroic stand of the black church against homosexual marriage as a product of hateful politics. Reaching out to blacks and Hispanics who share our view is something conservatives do and should do more of. NOM will continue to reach out to these communities. The current round of media attacks on NOM for a single line in a 3-year-old document reflects the basic tactic of the political left: Use government to push a new moral norm, and when Americans with more traditional values object, attack them mercilessly, then blame conservatives (especially Christian conservatives) for being 'divisive.' Their end game? Silencing the voices of millions of Americans." - Brian Brown, writing for the Washington Times in response to this week's essay by LCR head R. Clarke Cooper, who called NOM "a cancer that needs to be removed."
NOTE: It's amusing to watch NOM simultaneously stand by their race-baiting AND dismiss it as a "single line in a three year-old document." And it was much, much more than a single line, as we all know.
