We’re at ‘Point of Using the Force of Government to Punish Religious Organizations’

Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), spoke with on Saturday and said the view that marriage is between one man and one woman is increasingly silenced as hate speech.

“We’re now at the point of using the force of government to punish religious organizations,” said Brown at the march in Washington, D.C. “This is not just undermining religious liberty this is the opposite of religious liberty.”

Brown spoke at NOM’s fourth annual March for Marriage against same-sex marriage and the first march following the Supreme Court’s Obergefell v. Hodges ruling, which legalized homosexual marriage last June. asked Brown about his continued commitment to the issue following the Supreme Court’s ruling.

“Well, you know, just like the life movement, Roe v. Wade didn’t stop the life movement,” he said. “There were a couple of tough years, but out of the wreckage of Roe arose a vibrant, winning coalition.”

“It’s going to take years, maybe decades, but we need a movement that has this march to be a living symbol year in and year out that we’re here, we’re not going away, and we’re growing,” he continued.

You are entitled to your religious liberty as long as it doesn't interfere with mine.

National Organization for Marriage?

Right out of the gates, they are lying. Their very name is a lie. It disgusts me when people and organizations are deceptive and dishonest.

They are not FOR marriage, they are FOR imposing their religious view on the rest of society.

If your holy book says don't get gay married, then by all means don't get gay married. No one, is forcing you to gay married.

But don't stand under the banner "National Organization for Marriage" and pretend that what you do has anything to do with your deceptive title.

Religious liberty is YOURS, not yours to impose on the rest of the nation.
