Brian Brown looks deranged and
 he seems to be sporting a NOM tiara

The latest donor dig from Brian S. Brown of National Organization for Marriage is titled: “Fighting to Protect Supporters of Marriage.” I am a supporter of marriage and I require no protection. If I did need protection from anything, the folks at NOM would be about the last people I would seek for help given their track record.

After all, through the end of 2016 NOM burned through nearly $70 million of donors’ money and has nothing to show for it. The anti-gay group did not seem to do anything (other than try to raise money) in 2017. It accomplished nothing of note.

Now, according to Brown:

One of the top objectives we’ve laid out in our 2018 Strategic Plan is to pursue a comprehensive series of actions to protect the right of people who believe in traditional marriage to live out their beliefs in their daily lives and at work. Increasingly, marriage supporters have been targeted by government officials and others for punishment simply because of their belief in what the Bible teaches and all of human history has shown, that marriage is the union of one man and one woman.

Please help NOM fight for the rights of marriage supporters to be free from discrimination and persecution by making a critically-needed financial contribution today. Your gift will be matched, doubling its effectiveness.

That so-called strategic plan was nothing more than a list of wishful-thinking objectives. Let’s face it, what Brown is advocating, despite all of the twisted language, is for public accommodations to have the ability to deny services to gay couples in contravention to applicable law. He is trying to legitimize discrimination.

Nothing much is going to happen on that front for the next six months, until the Supreme Court issues a ruling in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case. There’s not much that Brown or his group are going to be able to do about it, before or after than ruling. They are not a legal group and their opponents are, among others, the ACLU.

From there, Brown just restates his list of wishful thinking, interrupted with seven donation links. I think he is running out of gullible people. Maybe not.
