Brian Brown’s ‘March for Marriage’ is an EPIC failure once more
Brian Brown is getting worse every year at organizing the National Organization for Marriage “March For Marriage” with less than 50 people showing up this year.
Brown said that the utter failure of the event was down to scheduling and permit troubles. Because he only had a year to organize it. So, yes.
Right Wing Watch reports:
While in previous years, the March for Marriage’s numbers have been increased by various church-sponsored buses and a large contingent bused in by New York state Sen. Ruben Diaz, this year there appeared to be no large groups.
Brown told the crowd not to be discouraged by their small numbers, comparing their cause to that of abolitionists in the 18th and early 19th century.
“We are on the side of truth,” he said. “We are on the side of true human rights, we are on the side of true civil rights. And in every fight for civil rights, it took a creative minority who were willing to stand up and speak truth to power no matter what the cost. And you know what? There may not be thousands of us here today. It doesn’t matter. There were only a few that stood with William Wilberforce when he stood up and said ‘no’ to the slave trade in England. He was mocked, he was derided, he was laughed at. We remember him as a hero now, because ultimately his life’s work was successful, but it wasn’t successful in his own lifetime.”
“Every year, we’re going to be here whether there’s thousands or hundreds or tens” of people, he said.
Brown also said he will continue to work on overturning the Obergefell marriage equality decision and would be ready to advance a state same-sex marriage ban to get a case before the Supreme Court at the right time.
“The court has been wrong and wrong time and time again,” he said. “And guess what? The court has overturned its own rulings that were wrong. It’s going to take another justice, maybe two. It may take 20 years, maybe more. I firmly believe that with God’s grace, we are going to correct this illegitimate court decision.”
