NOM Denounces Murder Of Mark Carson

“We condemn in the strongest possible way the murder of a gay man in New
York by a killer who apparently hurled anti-gay insults at him moments
before the killing. This senseless act cannot be condoned in America or
anywhere, and we urge that the perpetrator be prosecuted to the fullest
extent of the law. Our heart goes out to the family of the victim, and
we hold them in our prayers. While this killing appears to have no
connection to the current debate about redefining marriage, there is no
room for violence toward any American — whether they support traditional
marriage or not. No person should be subjected to violence because they
are gay or lesbian or because they believe that marriage is the union
of one man and one woman. There is no place for violence, period.” – Brian Brown, in a statement posted today on NOM’s blog.
