NOM's Brian Brown has trouble defending Family Research Council lies

There is no question that the National Organization for Marriage is milking the outcry over Wednesday's shooting at the Family Research Council in a sad attempt to attack the Southern Poverty Law Center.

However, watch what happens when Brown is confronted during an interview on CNN with statements made by the Family Research Council in regards to comparing gays to pedophiles. He gets a little tongue-tied.

The good stuff starts at 2:20:

Hat tip to The New Civil Rights Movement.

Homophobia and racism - why is one called hate but the other is 'merely offensive?'

In his piece yesterday, Dana Milbank of The Washington Post (in his zeal to call out the Southern Poverty Law Center over labeling the Family Research Council a "hate group") seemed to be implying that the power of words should not be taken into account, even if these words can foster hatred against a group of people and could potentially lead to violent action.

I say let's put that to a test:

Video Number One:

Video Number Two:

The question here should not be which one is hatred. The answer to that is obvious.

The question is just why is one video (number one) considered to be hatred while the other can be considered as merely offensive or a "defense of Christian values?"

I think that the shooting Wednesday has revealed something sad about this country when it comes to gay equality.

Lies told about the gay community don't seem to judged on the same scale as lies told about any other group of people.
