So Brian Brown is still bitching about 10th Amendment stuff

In case you haven’t heard, the latest state to gain full marriage equality is Oklahoma! And of course once again Brian Brown, head Spokesbigot of the National Organization for Marriage (The oxymoron group!) is once again trying to make a 10th Amendment argument for the right of states to discriminate against the gay community vis a vis marriage rights.

This one is pretty brief compared to the angst he displayed on Utah or New Mexico.

Today, the National Organization for Marriage renews its call for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to protect marriage as the union of one man and one woman. The decision by U.S District Court Judge Terence Kern in Oklahoma is the latest in a string of examples of the dangers posed to state marriage laws when the avenue of debate is the federal court system. We need firm legislative action to protect the rights of the states and their citizens to make their own determinations regarding the definition of marriage without interference from federal appointees either in the courts or within the executive branch.
 
Now the asshole wants a federal amendment, well he’s ALWAYS wanted that but it has a snowballs chance in hell of ever coming to fruition.

Old Pumpkin Face Brown really doesn’t like the Federal Judiciary. The reason Brown doesn’t like it is because he sees it as illegitimate when in nearly every instance when NOM and the other bigots have been dragged into court they’ve lost and lost badly!

So now the truth comes out – he doesn’t like the judiciary or the executive branches. Maybe it’s because there’s a lot more logic and thought in those two branches than in the rabble of the U.S. House and Senate.

And calling it interference is telling. Let me rephrase it for him: Brian Brown wants the will of the religiously bigoted to be the rule of law in the land. And all I can say to that is, over my dead fucking body.

    1. No I don’t think it will fall apart. The bigots have lost the argument a handful of significant times now. The courts, particularly on the district and appellate levels have seen fit to side with us, the Supreme Court has tried to delay having to hear it. But I think they’re getting backed into a corner now.

  1. Great post! Brian Brown is a nitwit. If, over the years, he and his kind had spent half the time, energy and dollars building homeless shelters and feeding the hungry that they’ve spent trying to deny federal rights to loving same-sex couples and their children, the U.S. would be a much better place to live, work and raise a family. Oxymorons, indeed.
