NOM President Tweets About Pro-Gay Activists At Rally in Providence

NOM parked their BP-filled tour bus by the steps of the Rhode Island state Capital in Providence this afternoon and participated in yet another lowly attended rally for their “One Man, One Woman’’ campaign. 

A couple of pro-gay activists stormed the NOM podium and NOM president Brian Brown, in his typical scaremongering and sensationalist way, tweeted pictures that he's tagged with overtly alarmist terminology, referring to the "militancy and incivility" of the counter protesters. Brown also tweeted a picture of a gay rights activist and has hilariously dubbed the man “The face of intolerance.” Funny, 'cause I thought this was the face of intolerance.
Brown also managed to contradict himself in two separate descriptions of how the the Rhode Island Capital police responded to the "militant" pro-gay protesters. He tweeted: "Protestors embarass themselves, cause. Storm our stage. Refuse to listen to Capitol police." But then in a post on the NOM site (visit it here if you dare), writes, "...I was physically surrounded by three people trying to shout me down as Capitol Police did nothing."

NOM president Brian Brown also tweeted that a rainbow flag-colored umbrella protest in Albany yesterday in Albany was the "Silliest. Protest. Ever."

  1. WILL, I am a gay man, married to a gay man raising our teenage son that we've raised since the day he was born to us. I find it insulting that you question my commitment to achieving full civil equality for GLBT people, including marriage equality, and feel that I'm willing to settle for tactics that will take us 30-40 more years to achieve that equality.

    I and my family don't HAVE 30-40 years.

    And you are DEAD WRONG to say that minds can't and won't be changed. I can honestly say that I change minds EACH AND EVERY DAY, but I don't do it by screaming at people or acting disrespectfully. The thing that drives hateful, disrespectful people crazy is having people see me being respectful to them as they are being hateful and disrespectful to me. It changes the minds of those who witness it and it INFURIATES the bigots.

    I consider that a WIN, WIN!
