NOM Spokesman: ESPN's Chris Broussard More Courageous Than Jason Collins

Broussard

NOM's Jennifer Roback-Morse told Lutheran Public Radio on Tuesday that it took much more courage for ESPN's Chris Broussard to condemn Jason Collins for coming out than it did for Collins to tell the world that he's gay.

MorseSaid Morse:

I think he required more courage than the basketball player did. I mean, it requires no courage at all today to say “I’m gay.” It’s my understanding [Collins] got a phone call from the president congratulating him on his courage. Well how much courage can it take if the president’s going to pick up the phone and give you a personal phone call, you know? But in the meantime, this fellow who says, you know, ‘I’m a Christian, and I believe that sex belongs in marriage and it belongs in man-woman marriage,’ to say that, now that will bring the whole wrath of society down upon your head. So that’s the guy that really required the courage and I give him a lot of credit for it.

Listen, AFTER THE JUMP...

Morse added: "I was actually quite touched by his comments because – I hate to say this because the gay lobby will certainly pick up on this – but I want you to know I did not coach this man at all whatsoever, but he sounds like a spokesman for the Ruth Institute because he’s there saying all of these sins are sexual sins."

NOM Leader Wears Ear Protectors to Anti-Gay Marriage Rally So She Won't Hear People Yelling 'Bigot': VIDEO

Morse

National Organization for Marriage leader Jennifer Roback-Morse broomed in to Minnesota over the weekend and told the sparse crowd at a 'traditional marriage' rally there that she wears hunting earphones so she won't have to listen to reality.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

. . .I was told that there might be a few hunters in an area like this and so I brought my ear protectors. I'm not a hunter myself. Do you guys have these sort of ear protectors? They're very snazzy. You can turn they on and they block out the noise, they block out a big loud noise like when you shoot your gun, it blocks out--you guys know what I'm talking about here?

Good, good, good. People in San Diego have no idea what I'm talking about. But I can hear you because I've turned up the volume on my little headset here. You can hear what you want, but you block out the noise.

Now why would I wear earprotectors to a marriage rally? Because there's a lot of noise in the marriage debate. You know what I'm talking about? Everytime somebody says, "You're a bigot," that's just noise. That is just noise. That is designed to keep you--when somebody says that, what happens? You go Ohh! . . .you suddenly immediately recoil, just like the shotgun going off in your ear.

So you have to do something to stop the noise, so you can think. And the people on the other side are very deliberate and intentional from keeping the subject away from the subject. Instead of the subject being, "What is marriage and why do we need it?," the subject is, "What's wrong with you guys that you're so mean to us and that you're on the wrong side of history?" That's what they want to talk about.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Roback-Morse also called marriage equality "nothing but a government registry of friendships."

When Vaughan Walker overturned Prop 8, he came up with a purpose of marriage that was completely gender-neutral. He said something like, “It’s the state recognition for two people who want to share their commitment with one another, and share resources, and take care of any dependents, if any,” you know? If you look at that purpose, there’s nothing there about children. It doesn’t even have to be a sexual relationship… It’s nothing but a government registry of friendships.
