National Organization for Marriage is touting that Dan Savage accepted Brian Brown’s request for a debate.
“When Dan Savage took to his own bully pulpit to harass and demean Christian high-school students, I issued a challenge to him for a civil and adult debate on the topic of marriage. So I flew out to the West Coast to have dinner with Dan at his house, and the long anticipated debate over marriage was finally held…” -NOM’s Brian Brown
Actually, Brian Brown, it was the other way around. And there’s proof of it. But okay.
Good As You blog reported that the father in the NOM’s ‘defamation’ video of the teen girl that was harassed by Savage at journalism convention is an active Tea Party member. Okay. No surprise there. Phillip Naman recounts about how astounded he was to find that his daughter and her cohorts were “bullied,” adding “You didn’t hear him talking about the Koran.” Turns out the father, Phillip Naman is very vocal about his non-tolerance for homosexuality, posting hateful, homophobic things to his wall. No surprise there. But again, we want to point out that he’s associating himself with National Organization for Marriage and using him to “win the culture war” in a ‘defamation’ video. And conveniently, his daughter was “bullied” by Dan Savage. They recently took Damian Goddard, a failed sportscaster from Canada, under their wing after he was let go for posting his anti-gay views on Twitter.
Over the past year, NOM has become desperate to the point they are willing to lie. Whether its photoshopping in people at failed rallies to violating campaign finance disclosure laws. Or the that infamous NOM “wedge memo” that was leaked that stated “The strategic goal of this project is to drive a wedge between gays and blacks—two key Democratic constituencies,” it said. “We aim to find, equip, energize and connect African-American spokespeople for marriage, to develop a media campaign around their objections to marriage as a civil right; and to provoke the gay marriage base into responding by denouncing these spokesmen and women as bigots.”
As of yesterday, a poll found that 0% of black voters were voting for Mitt Romney.
But back to Phillip Naman. Turns out, he’s not the much different from the very same NOM supporters who post hate speech against gay people (and President Obama) on a daily basis.

Good As You Blog made an interesting point regarding “Brown versus Savage.” Brian Brown’s sole mission in life is to basically halt or eliminate the very rights of the man he is debating. He collects a paycheck for doing so. Read about it here: http://www.goodasyou.org/good_as_you/2012/08/noms-gauche-debate-prep.html
