Anti-Gay Marriage Movement Erupts With Infighting And Finger-Pointing
"When I knew my involvement was going to generate controversy, I offered to step back and suggested others who were on the frontlines do so as well for the sake of unity. They refused, leaving me as the odd man out. If you look at them, they were all the same color with the same moderate views. It just didn't make sense why they would not include a person of color who was willing to fight." "I believe there are conservatives of all colors, but the leadership from NOM, Focus and Mission Public Affairs, wanted to run being a moderate campaign where everyone felt warm and fuzzy. But we know that sin is never satisfied and always wants more. These guys just looked and acted too much like the GOP – old and white."NOM's Brian Brown is pissed at Hutcherson.
"That is simply not true," he told CP. "Pastor Hutcherson wanted to work on an initiative and not a referendum which we thought was the best method. Brown also called Hutcherson's comment "absurd and reckless," and that he never heard any complaints from the Washington pastor. He also pointed to others such as Maryland's Bishop Harry Jackson, Jr. who is also black and was out front in his state's effort to overturn a new state law. "In the body of Christ I think if we have differences they need to be aired out between us and not in the public arena."Focus On The Family has the madz too.
"We would have hoped that Pastor Hutcherson would have brought something like this to us directly, but we haven't from him so we can't respond. Over the years the state campaigns to preserve marriage have been characterized by ethnic and racially diverse support, and that includes Washington."JMG reader Daniel points out that Brian Brown is now claiming his side was outspent by 10-1. Funny how that number keeps creeping up.
