Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), spoke with CNSNews.com 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.
CNSNews.com 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.
