Brian Brown Vs Evan Wolfson

This weekend Freedom To Marry head Evan Wolfson faced down hate group leader Brian Brown in an hour-long call-in show on C-SPAN. After you wade through Brown's opening bloviation, you'll get to a great statement by Wolfson.  

UPDATE: OMG, the caller at 12:45.  

UPDATE II: The caller at 29:30 is wonderful.  

UPDATE III: At 43:00 Wolfson nails Brown on being at that anti-gay Kremlin conference.

Wolfson: "Mr. Brown was in Russia, people can go and look it up, for something called the World Conference [Congress] Of Families, that endorsed a resolution calling on other countries to adopt the same kind of vicious, brutal, sweeping anti-gay law that Putin's Russia just enacted that has launched a wave of thuggery and beatings in the street and discrimination against gay people in that country that is now seeking to export that kind of attack. That's not about marriage. That's about beating up and in some cases killing and licensing thuggery. Mr. Brown was part of that conference and that's part of the work he is doing."

Brown: "That's absolutely wrong."

Wolfson: "People can look it up. "

Brown: "His facts are absolutely wrong. All people can look up are Evan Wolfson's and Human Rights Campaign's absolute lies and slurs."

BOOM. That's EXACTLY what EVERY activist who debates Brian Brown should be saying. Huge props to Evan Wolfson.
