Wayne Besen And Anti-Gay Activist Mike Brown Debate Violent Rhetoric: VIDEO


On his show today, progressive radio personality David Pakman hosted Wayne Besen and Michael Brown.

These men could not be more different: Besen heads up the pro-equality group Truth Wins Out and regularly appears on television to fight for gay rights. Brown, meanwhile, has authored books on how gay people are inferior and has allied himself with religious conservatives who preach fire and brimstone. The men, however, could almost agree on something: there's too much violent and militaristic language in the culture wars. They could not agree, however, on who's to blame.

Watch as the men face-off and Mr. Pakman plays referee, AFTER THE JUMP.

  1. duh. we didn't start the fire.

    there's a world of bullies running to the teacher and saying "the whole fight started when the gay kid hit me back!"

  2. Brown should prepare himself to lose this war as we are younger, smarter and far less encumbered by nonsense than he and his. Thus it is wholly delicious.

  3. I simply can't take the outright lies of fanatical religious Christians who claim their hateful destructive statements are taken out of context. They are only repeating what their bible says as they understand it. And their bible is the law of America and therefore they have every right to demean, belittle, attack, harass homosexuals - who are of course, in their bible, sinners.

    This same argument was used against Jews, African Americans, Asians, Muslims, Indians, women and all minorities.

    We need to shut down Christianity in America and send it back to Vatican City.

  5. I don't know anything about either of those gentlemen but I was not convinced that Brown is a hater. He is just a typical person who happens to believe that the bible is something other than what it is. The bible is a collection of books written thousands of years ago by primitives who believed ,as Jesus did, that diseases are caused by evil spirits and it is filled filled with myths, bloody made up history and riddled with contradictions. In my opinion, anyone who believes that the bible was inspired by the creator, if there is one, of the billion gallaxy universe needs to have their head examined.
