Dr. Michael Brown tells David Pakman that “the world’s best mommy is not a good daddy,” which apparently his way of claiming kids need a mom and a dad — a tireless falsehood that attacks single parents and same-sex couples with equal arrogance and ignorance.
Pakman invited Brown, the author of over 20 books including A Queer Thing Happened to America, to discuss his recent TownHall op-ed in which he lambastes same-sex marriage, sarcastically claims social conservatives who oppose equality have already lost the battle — then urges them to fight on anyway.
Brown tells Pakman that “gay activists” want to make any opposition to LGBT civil rights illegal, and Pakman, rightly, interrupts him, stating, “I think they just want equality.”
Amusingly, Brown claims organizations like the Alliance Defending Freedom (formerly the Alliance Defense Fund) are filled with wonderful people. Perhaps he was referring to Lisa Biron, who reportedly filmed her own daughter, (with whom she allegedly had sex,) and filmed the act with a cell phone, all of which led to her arrest and a jury taking minutes to convict her?
Perhaps Dr. Brown has been listening to the fibs of his buddy Rick Joyner, a Christian Minister and head of a huge megachurch operation, who sat down and told Brown that gay activists are “advocating” to “forbid marriage between a male and a female.”
Joyner also told Brown a story that was such a whopper I personally called the Swiss Consulate General in New York City to debunk his fib, which they happily did.
In his op-ed, Brown claims that “when gay activists announce that we conservative believers are on the wrong side of history, it is just another form of intimidation.” Yes, just like supporters of African-American civil rights did, and look how that turned out.
Also amusingly, Brown make the case for same-sex marriage:
“Polls and popularity trends do not determine what is morally right and wrong,” he writes at Town Hall:
One generation ago, sex out of wedlock was frowned upon. Today, it’s accepted as a normal part of life. Yet a recent US Census report indicates that “Being raised in a married family reduced a child’s probability of living in poverty by about 82 percent.” Popularity does not necessarily equate with morality, and only a fool makes moral choices based on the polls.
And that’s one reason why the LGBT community is fighting for marriage — we have children too.
There are many forms of family in America. There are millions of single parents raising children alone, by choice. What would Brown say to the spouses of thousands of veterans who never came home from Iraq or Afghanistan, alive?
Marriage is a wonderful institution. We’re just trying to have it extended to our families.
