NOM's Brian Brown is Furious That a City Councilman Told Bigots to Stay Out of NYC

Brown

Commenting on Chick-fil-A's recent announcements that it is planning a big expansion nationwide including a move into NYC, City Councilman Daniel Dromm had some tough remarks for the anti-gay chicken chain:

Dromm“We don’t need bigots coming to New York City,” Councilman Daniel Dromm (right), who is openly gay, told HuffPost. “They are not welcome here unless they can embrace all of New York’s diverse community, including the LGBT community.” ... “We don’t need bigoted people even keeping their opinions to themselves,” he said. “They need to wake up and see reality.”

Dromm's remarks set NOM President Brian Brown on the warpath:

Brian Brown, NOM's President responded to the comments with condemnation. "These remarks are outrageous and intolerant, and sadly seem to be part of a trend developing in the public debate surrounding this issue," Brown said. "When Dan Cathy's pro-marriage views were first reported in 2012, we saw mayors and city councils saying similar things—it was a disgraceful circus then, and it is now."

But Brown said that Dromm's remarks go even further than previous attempts to punish Chick-fil-A for its CEO's personal views.

"What Dromm has effectively said here is that anyone who believes in marriage as the union of a man and a woman is unwelcome in New York City," Brown noted. "His remarks, coming amidst a climate of such unseemly attacks on pro-marriage people as we saw with the Mozilla controversy last week, simply reinforce a growing manifestation of hostility and intimidation in the public square toward folks with traditional values. Christians and others are now, it seems, going to be considered guilty of 'thought-crimes' and threatened with all manner of reprisals simply for holding their beliefs."

Brown wants the City Council to condemn Dromm's remarks and issue a formal apology to bigot New Yorkers.

"Mr. Dromm has alienated and insulted millions of New Yorkers and made them feel like they don't belong in their own home city. The Council should correct this and extend an apology immediately and undo the hurt and wrong that's been done."

  2. Bry-Bry, the cry baby. Frankly, my dear, we don't give a damn what you think because, whatever it is, it's outrageous and intolerant and an outright lie. Get over it, cretin. You're a loser who won't recognize a bigoted cause that's over and done.

  3. NOM's cries of "intolerance" are like Fox News and their Klan's take on "freedom of speech" - it doens't exist for The Dixie Chicks, it only exist for Ted Nugent and that hick from Duck Dynasty.

    you can boycott pro-Equality groups and companies, but you can't boycott anti-Equality groups and companies.

    Brown - you have EIGHT children. The chances of them all being heterosexual are slim to NONE. Change your ways, or follow in Rick Warren's footsteps and bury your youngest son when he takes his pain and uses a shotgun-solution to end it all.

  11. liberals look like weak fascists when they support this. chik-fil-a has every right to open wherever, despite their owmer's beliefs. imagine an opposite case where a pro-lgbt company got threats to stay out from some conservative politician. this attempt will fail and backfire on us. yet again.

    now flame away

  14. "anyone who believes in marriage as the union of a man and a woman is unwelcome in New York City"

    Liar.

    I believe that -- my own parents are married.

    But I'm also married, and that's why I also believe marriage is the union of two people of the same sex.

  15. Brian Brown also ordered as a show of tolerance that a truckload of Chick-Fil-A sandwiches be delivered to the prison cell of Frazier Glenn Miller, the White supremacist so blinded by hate that he shot two Protestants and a Catholic in his attempt to kill Jews.

    Oh, wait....Brian Brown DIDN'T order Chick-Fil-A for the White supremacist? Why not? Why isn't Brian supporting this man's intolerance? Why isn't Brian Brown and NOM supporting this man's right to be a murderous bigot, just like Brian Brown and NOM are? That's HYPOCRISY!

  16. Like when that Islamic Culural centre was opposed in NYC, and was referred to as "the ground zero mosque" even though it wasn't actually a mosque and wasn't actually at "ground zero"?

    like that, Jaker?

  17. Brian Blah Blah Blah Brown strikes again. "Millions" of New Yorkers couldn't give a red rat's ass about gross Chik-fil-A one way or the other.

    And nice triple post Jaker the troll. You're about as right on target as Brian Blah.

  18. @excusme. yes exactly like the "ground zero mosque", which i fully supported to open. see, im not an ideologue marching to some kind of hypocritical political orthodoxy. im a liberal that operates on principle, not politics.

    @soleftimright. i guess the gods of internet posting thought i was 3 times as right.

    @aint nobody here...to compare a murderer with chik-fil-a is laughably ridiculous.

  19. Brian...please unload those acorns from your mouth before you open it. Oops, those aren't acorns? Well, nuts then...and I mean the tasty variety.

  20. I think he means even beyond the marriage debate is treating LGBT people with the kind of respect everyone should have.

  21. Mr. Brown grow a pair! You have such a thin skin, I am surprised your skin hasn't crackled, cracked or burned up!

  22. Dear Brian,
    Well, well well. Looks like your friend Scott Lively has brought down the wrath of god on Uganda and other west African countries.....you and he have caused torture and pain to god's gay children....and now he has sent uncontrolled Ebola to punish those who harmed them. Scott Lively and Brian Brown have brought the apocalypse on themselves.

    No doubt Brian, you and Scott will be flying out to west Africa immediately to help. Or does your so called Christian love for your fellow man only extend to spreading hate, bigotry and malice,
    Signed,
    The Pope.

  23. The councilman says that all New Yorkers must be welcome or they are not welcome. All New Yorkers pay for the infrastructure that make doing business appealing, seems fair to me.

  24. Christian bigots are welcomed in Russia, Africa and Mississippi. I humbly suggest that Chick-fil-a grow their business there.

  25. It's not exactly the hardest thing in the world to make a boneless chicken breast sandwich, and it's even easier to tell Mr. Brown he can have a nice nutritious lunch by sucking on my balls.
