Brian S. Brown, best known for being the guy who actually wept when New York legalized same-sex marriage, is the president of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), succeeding Maggie Gallagher in 2010. He has actually said that he has many friends who are homosexual, and just as Catholic bishop Nicholas DiMarzio here, he has a tendency to try to convince himself that he is actually serving homosexual people’s best interests. Apparently NOM is supposed to be the anti-gay-marriage organization ”with a friendly face,” which is an admirably virtuous stance given how much they suffer as victims of the demonic requests for equality from and restrictions of their God-given rights to discriminate people by the vicious gay lobby. According to Brown, the gay lobby is eventrying to take away his rights to vote, but doesn’t provide any evidence for the claim. (He makes a similar claim here; here, on the other hand, he attempts to invoke a comparison with slavery, and here he tries to claim that a ban on gay marriage is motivated by a libertarian attitude).
NOM claims to be very popular, but has had some trouble with the ideas of truth and honesty in advertising – this one is pretty spectacular. Here’s Brown inadvertently saying something true, however. The alleged popularity of the group didn’t engender much success in the 2012 election, however, even though they promised to defeat Obama.
Brown and NOM have been (of course) involved in various campaign strategies to remove supreme court judges they don’t like, and they have initiated several boycott campaigns of companies that don’t succumb to bigotry (their boycott of Starbucks is discussed here).
When one of the leaders of NOM, Louis Marinelli, defected to the gay rights side Brown was none too pleased. He wasn’t too pleased with Dan Savage’s arguments either, and challenged Savage to a debate; the result is here (it's actually somewhat illuminating). Here is his reaction to the Proposition 8 ruling.
Diagnosis: Brown is apparently a very sensitive person who overcompensates with unhinged hatred and lunacy. He’s pretty zealous and must be considered rather dangerous.
