NOM Newsletter: Gays Are Engaged In “Jihad,” Want To “Take Away Your Rights”

Every week, National Organization for Marriage (NOM) president Brian Brown releases a national update in order to inform his loyal followers about the most important developments in the fight against the supposed gay agenda.
These updates are typically opportunities for Brown to demonstrate just how deep NOM’s anti-gay animus goes. You may remember last week’s update, when he equated homosexuality to pedophilia in no uncertain terms.
This week’s update didn’t fail in delivering plenty of anti-gay fearmongering and name-calling:
The fatwa against Jerry Buell—a Florida schoolteacher who was suspended by a public school for posting on his Facebook page that he was repulsed by gay marriage in New York—has just failed!
Here's a new Fox News video of the school board hearing, in which hundreds of people showed up to defend Jerry Buell's rights—even many who don't agree with his views!
Kudos to Liberty Counsel for defending Jerry in the extraordinary world gay-marriage advocates have sought to create: a world where children do not need a mom and dad, but instead need to be protected from adults who believe and speak for the great truths of Genesis.
Jerry won a battle, but the jihad continues.
But you and I have always fought together under the banner of truth. Together, truth and love will prevail, as Maggie says. Not Truth without the love of God and our neighbor in our hearts. Nor a Love which is afraid to speak truth for fear of being labeled a bigot or a hater by those who wield scorn and hatred as a weapon to suppress the truth and those who speak it.
They win by making us afraid to speak and to act for marriage in the public square.
They can only win if they can get us to accept and internalize the second-class status they propose for us. To accept our own marginalization, to be quiet, to stand down and keep our heads down. To live in fear, instead of acting, with courage, out of hope.
In Illinois, gay rights groups are using the courts to shut out religious adoption agencies. More than 2000 children, battered, abused, neglected, will have to be moved in order to accommodate the new gay morality, backed by the government: If you "discriminate" between same-sex and opposite-sex unions, you are a bigot and a hater. The public good is to be served by excluding you, even if children suffer.
The mask of tolerance has been cast aside. We are looking into the face of a movement which wants, in the name of equality, to take away your rights and the rights of millions of decent, loving, law-abiding Americans who "cling"—yes, I'm not afraid to call it that!—to God, common sense, and the best of America's long traditions of respect for Judeo-Christian values. [emphasis added]
Did you get all that? Gays are engaged in a holy war, issuing Islamic rulings against innocent school teachers and hurting children in an effort to create a new “gay morality.” They won’t be satisfied until all non-gays are made into second-class citizens with their right to speak the “truth” is completely suppressed.
Imagine, for a second, that an organization was making these kinds of claims about African-Americans or Jewish people. Is there any doubt that such an organization would deserve to be labeled a hate group? Is there any doubt that such an organization is motivated by bigotry and animus, and not by serious policy concerns?
There shouldn’t be. NOM claims to “love” gays and lesbians, but its smear campaign is clearly born of the organization’s deeply rooted animus against the LGBT community.
