Brian Brown To Dan Savage: I Accept Your Dinner Invite, But I’m Coming Stag

NOM President Brian Brown, a full week after Dan Savage invited him, Mrs. Brown, and their children, to dinner in the Savage’s home, has finally accepted — sans Mrs. Brown and the children.

Dan — I accept and will look forward to debating you at your dining room table. As I said in my challenge to you, anytime, any place.

While I appreciate the invitation that you have extended to my wife, she will not be able to attend. She is a full-time mom with seven beautiful children and an eighth on the way.

I have no objection to Mark Oppenheimer from the New York Times covering the discussion, nor to you hiring your own video crew to film the event, provided that I am able to hire my own video crew to be sure there is no creative editing of the discussion.

Not that a New York Times reporter would slant the news, mind you! :)

This will be fun!

To refresh your memory, Brown had taunted Savage after the creator of the It Gets Better project had delivered a speech which “offended” Christians. Savage had said, “We can learn to ignore the bullshit in the Bible about gay people,” and called the students who walked out “pansy-assed.” (That last part was uncalled for, but was it bullying? No.)

So Brown attacked:

Let me lay down a public challenge to Dan Savage right here and now: You want to savage the Bible? Christian morality? Traditional marriage? Pope Benedict? I’m here, you name the time and the place and let’s see what a big man you are in a debate with someone who can talk back. It’s easy to make high-school girls cry by picking on them. Let’s pick on someone our own size!

I’m here, any time, any place you name, Dan Savage. You will find out out how venal and ridiculous your views of these things are if you dare to accept a challenge.

But now, 0f course, it’s going to be “fun.”

Of course, we still don’t know the date and time.

Stay tuned.

I'm not sure what the point of this is. Brian Brown gets a 6 figure annual salary from NOM. He is not going to do anything that could harm that income.

It's very naive to invite a professional political bigot and Bible thumper into your gay-headed household during an election year thinking that the professional political bigot will not use everything he observes as weapons against you later.

So, wait, let me get this straight.
When "they" refuse to talk the LGBT community, or ignore whatever points are being brought to bear against them, they are intolerant bigots. But, when a figure head of the community actually invites one of these people to have a civil conversation, and it is accepted, it's naive of him to expect anything but a negative outcome from it?
That sounds like a fantastic way to justify not trying to interact with anyone who doesn't agree with you.

Okay.
Repeating yourself is not a reply.

Even in accepting the invitation, Brian Brownstain is propagandizing. He got a dig in at the New York Times, but the Times has run editorials from Robert George and from what's her name.

Hey I can be available via Skype! It would be fun to go head on with Brown.

Poor Brian. Doesn't want his brainwashed little Catholic darlings to be exposed to the real world and thus exposure to truth.

I just hope Savage can maintain a bit of decorum and not sink to his usual vulgar language and name calling. Stick to the actual points of the debate and show the world just what a bigot and an outdated fool BB really is.
