NOM's Brian Brown whines about being called a bigot while acting like a bigot

Apparently the irony of acting like a bigot while decrying being called a bigot is something National Organization for Marriage's Brian Brown never considered as he recently railed at the gay marriage conducted at the Rose Parade:

"All along, we’ve been hearing from activists who support same-sex marriage, ‘Hey, if we redefine marriage, it won’t have any effect on you, this is about loving individuals, what they decide to do, it will have no effect on you.’ Well, lo and behold, it has to be shoved in the face of families -- many of whom voted to define marriage as a union between a man and a woman – on a float at a family event. … We know that when you redefine marriage this is taught in schools, we know that teachers tell kids that folks who believe in this notion of marriage as a union between a man and a woman are discriminating, they’re the functional equivalent of bigots. And now it hasn’t even stopped in the classroom, now the idea has to be, well, at family events we need to make a point to have a same-sex marriage to sort of put it right in their faces and call them out. Well, that’s just wrong. In America, we can disagree over key issues, but the idea that you would target children and make this about using a family event to sort of indoctrinate kids, that’s just wrong."

Or in other words:

Yep, no bigotry there.

All I can do is think of the countless public -- some have even been highly televised -- weddings between a man and a woman and how this is accepted as a matter of course. But when two men or two women decide to share their love, commitment, and joy publicly, it's a horrible thing?

Because gay people don't have families too? Brian Brown you crazy.
