Brian Brown Goes Full Orwell

Brian Brown of the National Organization of Marriage gave a talk in Utah, which has a raging battle over marriage equality going on, and he went full Orwell, claiming that the fight against marriage equality is in fact the real battle for civil rights. “We stand up for the civil rights for all when we stand up for the truth about marriage,” he said. Except those icky gay people, of course. They don’t count.

  • War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.

    Thus says the Talibangelicals.

  • He just wants one of those biblical marriages with a couple 9 year olds, doesn’t he?

    You know what would be nice, something like the Fantasy Island tv show: full tilt Old Testament World. A place where Mr Brown and the Talibangelicals can go and live in Iron-Age Judea. All the laws, all the lack of sanitation, all the scratching food from the scrub lands with the Wrath of God hanging over your head. Throw in an invasion from Egypt or Babylon. One year minimum stay.

    Put it on pay-for-view and I’d watch.

  • You never go full Orwell…

    From the RWW article:

    Brown pushed the narrative that conservative Christians are being persecuted by the increased acceptance of gay rights. …

    Brown went on to compare the movement against marriage equality to Christians who fought against the Roman empire, slavery, and those at the head of the Civil Rights Movement in the U.S. “Throughout history, people of faith have stood up against gross injustices, stood up for true civil rights,” he said, adding later: “We stand up for the civil rights for all when we stand up for the truth about marriage.”

    See! He’s standing up for the right of gays to be persecuted the way Christians once were and imagine they are now.

    Well, he’s right. It is the real battle for civil rights. And he’s on the wrong side.
