NOM president Brian Brown today published another of his unintentionally amusing rants about them devil gays, this time exploiting Good Friday to compare himself to Jesus.
He celebrated his last supper on earth with his disciples, knowing that he would be betrayed, and prepared himself for his barbaric crucifixion and death today, Good Friday. How quickly they turned on him. I can imagine how Jesus must have felt, having experienced a seeming seismic shift in public opinion (at least according to the media) in the object of much of my work, the preservation of marriage.
I can’t help but feel the parallels between what happened during Christ’s time on earth and some of our own experiences in recent times, including in the struggle to preserve, protect and promote marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
We’ve seen marriage be considered invincible one day, and then in a blink of an eye seen it redefined and defiled. We’ve seen the principle of traditional marriage be betrayed by people who swore to voters they would protect it.
We’ve seen some people abandon the fight, whether out of fear or seeing many who remained vigilant punished and persecuted. And we’ve seen constitutionally-guaranteed rights such as the right to religious liberty be superseded by invented concepts that not only are not rights, they also are not right.
I know that true marriage will rise again. I think it will happen fairly soon, because it’s impossible to maintain the lie of same-sex ‘marriage’ forever. But whether it takes two years or two decades, NOM is determined to fight every day for the truth of marriage and for the good that it provides for families and children.
