“I want to thank Sen. Mitch McConnell personally for speaking out against the abuse of power against nonprofits, including a suspicious attempt by the IRS to force disclosure of donors whose names are not required under federal laws,” Brian Brown states in his latest rant against any positive depiction of same-sex marriage. In this case, he is attacking the X-Men, which many have always taken as an allegory for homosexuality, for daring to have a same-sex marriage.
Brown and his cohorts fear the light. They fear being named. They fear it because they know that their actions are dark. The Bible states “For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.” Bullies fear the light. They fear being exposed for the cowards that they are.
I want to thank Sen. Mitch McConnell personally for speaking out against the abuse of power against nonprofits, including a suspicious attempt by the IRS to force disclosure of donors whose names are not required under federal laws. And for specifically mentioning the leak from the IRS of NOM’s confidential tax documents:
The head of one national advocacy group has released documents which show that his group’s confidential IRS information found its way into the hands of a staunch critic on the Left who also happens to be a co-chairman of President Obama’s re-election committee. The only way this information could have been made public is if someone leaked it from inside the IRS.
Thanks Sen. Mitch McConnell, for speaking truth to power!
Let me promise you—with your help and with God’s—we will not be deterred or intimidated from standing up now and forever for God’s truth about marriage.
This fight, this good fight, continues. We know Who wins in the end, don’t we?
Of course Brown is going to claim that his side is on the side of right even when he and his hide deep in the Darkness away from the Light.
Regarding same-sex marriage. . .the first time I came across a lesbian couple in what could be simply called marriage was in Mercedes Lackey’s Valdemar series. That was some twenty years ago now. While Brown laments that there are now all these same-sex marriages showing up in “children’s literature”, the reality is that they have been there for quite some time.
The problem is that Brown’s hatred was not a money making proposition twenty-years ago.
Here is what Brown has to say about the X-Men:
X-Men Comics is depicting a gay superhero wedding. “Northstar,” who came out as gay in 1992, is now proposing to “Kyle.”
Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Axel Alonso said, “Marvel has a long and proud tradition of reflecting the world in all its diversity, and this is just one more example of that.”
Marjorie Liu, an X-Men writer, told Rolling Stone she wanted to inspire others to follow their footsteps. “Here are two people, trying to live their lives—mutant and gay, black and gay—empowered in their own ways, but also fringe-dwellers,” she said. “They’re living life on their own terms…The message is: You can do the same thing.”
A comic book shop in New York City spotted a commercial opportunity, a chance for some nice publicity, according to LifeSiteNews.
They decided to fund an all-expenses paid wedding for two lucky guys, in their comic book store.
No, I’m not making this up.
Scott Everhart, bless him, at 39 years of age, saw an opportunity of his own. He applied online to win the comic book store wedding prize—and waited to tell his partner Jason until he was asked by the store to come in for an interview.
“That’s when I broke the news to [Welker] and kind of proposed at the same time,” he said.
Thor Parker, social media and events director at Midtown Comics, said, “They really stood out as super fans.”
After the ceremony the store sold copies of Astonishing X-Men No. 51, which features Northstar and Kyle tying the knot.
(Same-sex weddings are becoming commonplace in comic books, from Archie to X-Men. Batwoman—originally a love interest for Batman—has become a lesbian.)
Why am I telling you this story? I don’t know Scott or Jason and I wish them both well.
But something is wrong when huge companies push gay marriage into children’s literature in order to make money. Something is wrong when a comic book store decides to host a wedding, again for commercial purposes. And something is really wrong when a man proposes because, well, somebody else is going to help pay for the wedding and it might mean a cool trip to New York City.
Somewhere there may be some foolish man and woman getting married in a comic book store. But nobody else is paying for it and nobody in the media is covering it.
Are we really supposed to believe in the “sanctity” of gay comic book weddings?
The promotion of gay marriage continues apace.
Brown, of course, is parsing his information here. This is not surprising because admitting that a company has held promotions for straight couples to get married in various places is just, well, horrifying isn’t it? After all, didn’t Today hold a string of contests to allow someone to win a full out wedding at their expense? It seems that Brown just wants to make these claims without actually bothering with the facts, right?
Of course, Brown is also upset about the lawsuit going forth against St. Joseph’s Medical Center. It is hysterically funny in some ways because Brown twists the reality within his statements. He wrote:
A federal lawsuit was just filed against St. Joseph’s Medical Center, a Catholic hospital in Westchester, New York, because the Catholic hospital doesn’t provide spousal benefits for same-sex unions. It’s yet another lawsuit challenging DOMA, the federal Defense of Marriage Act. Religious charities, who do good work and are now facing litigation threats, are just collateral damage to gay rights activists intent on using the law to impose their vision of “equality.” It quickly becomes clear, like in George Orwell’s famous dystopian novel Animal Farm, that some are more equal than others.
“I remember almost a year ago when this bill was signed into law, we were told that it would have no impact on religious freedoms,” my friend the Rev. Jason McGuire, executive director of New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms told Citizen Link. “Less than a year later it’s very clear that gay marriage is indeed having an impact on religious freedom here in the Empire State.”
St. Joseph’s Medical Center’s insurance plan is self-financed, which means it falls under federal law rather than the laws of New York State. Catholic hospitals self-finance in order to avoid state laws that require them to fund abortions and other acts the Catholic church considers immoral. Striking down DOMA (which protects their right to limit spousal benefits to husbands and wives) is the first step to imposing a new orthodoxy of gay “equality” on every organization in America.
Here is the thing, Brown believes that he is better than me. He believes that he is better than you, as well. Laws like DOMA make him better than me. This is called legal discrimination. It is an attempt to enforce someone’s status as being better than others through laws. Brown is terrified of being equal with LGBT Americans.
As for “It’s yet another lawsuit challenging DOMA, the federal Defense of Marriage Act. Religious charities, who do good work and are now facing litigation threats, are just collateral damage to gay rights activists intent on using the law to impose their vision of ‘equality’” let us not forget that the Catholic Church has been squandering money that the poor and needy need in order to fight for inequality and theocracy. Brown does not care about that. All he cares about is protecting his privilege as a white, straight, cis-gender, male.
