They can only win if they can get us to accept and internalize the second-class status they propose for us. To accept our own marginalization, to be quiet, to stand down and keep our heads down. To live in fear, instead of acting, with courage, out of hope.

National Organization for Marriage’s Brian Brown, opining about the “second-class status” proponents of LGBTQ rights are conferring upon Christians. 

You seriously think Christians are an oppressed minority? I’m sick of this shit.

I can’t even… You’re not, okay? You’re not.

No one has launched a war on Christmas. No one is proposing your churches be forced to marry same-sex couples. No one is suggesting Christians be second-class citizens. If you’ll notice, your operatives are allowed to testify before state legislatures on how horrible same-sex marriage will be, even though you possess no scientific evidence and distort the facts about the LGBTQ community in such a way that it’s purely hateful.

LGBTQ Americans are the ones who are being treated as second-class citizens. Not you. In fact, folks like you have a history of oppressing those who don’t agree with you or are different, but always out of ‘love’ and concern-trolling for their eternal souls. Mr. Brown and his NOM cronies have a twisted view of love.

I can’t even…
