NOM's Brian Brown Collaborated with Russian Legislators on Country's Gay Adoption Ban: VIDEO

Yelena MizulinaIn a report released yesterday, Right Wing Watch revealed that National Organization for Marriage president Brian Brown participated in a joint meeting with Russian legislators back in June to discuss changing the country's international adoption laws to exclude same-sex couples. Brown's trip to Russia, which was not publicly announced by NOM, culminated in a rousing speech given to the Duma's committee on foreign affairs and its committee on family, women and children - whose chair, Yelena Mizulina (right), authored the ban on gay "propaganda" and the anti-gay adoption bill that was signed into law in July. 

Said Brown:

"We are talking about violations of rights, we are talking about the rights and problems of children in their education. We should not shy away from this and should not forget about it and create an illusion for ourselves. A reconsideration of the definition and understanding of marriage is in fact a real threat to rights. Very soon after a law was passed that legalized same-sex marriage in the state of Massachusetts, we saw that religious organizations were closing down, religious organizations that dealt with adoptions and that did not support adoption by same-sex families. They were closing one after another.

We have actually seen that in some schools, they are talking to children about homosexuality, but in fact they don't have the right to learn about a lot of things until a certain age. [...]

I think that this visit, the invitation to visit Russia, will enable the development of this movement around the world. We will band together, we will defend our children and their normal civil rights. Every child should have the right to have normal parents: a father and a mother.

You can watch a Russian dubbed interview of Brown at the meeting, AFTER THE JUMP...

Meanwhile, Human Rights Campaign president Chad Griffin said the news of Brown's invovlement in Russia is proof of NOM's anti-gay animus knowing no boundaries.

"This goes well beyond marriage," said Griffin. "Apparently NOM is expanding its portfolio to include the international persecution of LGBT people. We knew that Brian Brown had it out for gay people in America, but it's now become clear that he's hell-bent on ruining the lives of gays and lesbians worldwide."

  9. I'm old enough to remember America's "glory days" when collaborating with a member-nation of "The Axis of Evil" was considered treasonous...

  10. Yeah, because the parenting and education Russian kids are getting in those orphanages is so fantastic! Who could be so cruel as to take them away from all that and put them in an evil American school where they have to learn icky things about the real world?

  11. I can not believe this closet case has this much focus and hate in his soul. But the fact that he had to go to Russia to accomplish something shows how out of touch he is. Just leave the country, Brian. Better yet, go to Amsterdam and "find" yourself.

  12. I thought NOM claimed they didn't hate us, that they were only "protecting" marriage... but what does adoption and education have to do with marriage in America, Brian? Hmmm...

  13. NOM is a fifth column.

  14. Yes, this is the sort of thing he would like to do here if he could.

  15. Even the Pope has given up. He has no choice but to join the Eastern Orthodox Church.

  16. I want to know who is funding NOM. They have been dodging the law for years over revealing the money behind this hate organization. I want to know who sent this bloated closet-case to Russia.

  17. Thousands of cute Russian babies thank you. No lab rat status for them.

  18. If this isn't prosecutable, it should be. He has added fuel to the fire of persecution in Russia and has blood on his hands now.

  21. The Russian woman looks like she was left for another man.

  22. Can't tell if Ha is being sarcastic or trolling.

  23. Why would they even consult him though?

    Posted by: JMC | Oct 4, 2013 10:13:07 PM

  24. They consulted him because that means the Russian assembly now has "international support". The Uganda assembly madam speaker was probably also there to "testify".

  25. I do not see any hate! He is protecting God law. I will never want my child have 2 mothers or 2 fathers, even they will be a millionaires. I prefer my child have simple mother and a father, even thy will be very poor. I am already sick to my stomach when I think about. That is wrong people!I do not wish that for my worse enemy. because is wrong, wrong, wrong. And is against God and the church.To gay people: i respect you and love you, but please seek medical help for your shameful behavior.ONE PERSON IS SICK BUT ALL SOCIETY SUFFER. To some commentators, maybe Mr Brown was a gay or some it is not important, but he has wife and children, he obey God law. Anything else NOT matter. To others, do not use wulgar words here, it is public, you may get sued for your language.
    Wish you all the best
