Worried over a string of Federal Court decisions striking down marriage bans across the country, National Organization for Marriage Chairman John Eastman told a reporter: “It’s like we’re in Stalinist Russia.”

Right, not having their religious beliefs written into law is exactly like a totalitarian state. What a bunch of clowns!

Brian Brown’s worried where he’s going to get his pin money now that the gravy train is going off the tracks.

Right. Just like Stalinist Russia.

Except for the “like” part.

Except for the Stalinist part.

Except for the Russia part.

He did, however, get the “just” part exactly right,.

Since Stalinist Russia would readily share his values, I say it is time to fire up “the Way-Back Machine”. Or he could just buy a ticket to Putin’s Russia and feel right at home. I’ll help him pack.

That’s the trouble with an independent judiciary. It’s so, so, so . . . what’s the word I’m looking for . . . independent.

The thing is that Brown is just as unhappy if State Legislatures or the voters at large approve same sex marriage. He’s never happy about it. Ever.

And it affects him so much!

@Ben. I have to disagree with you. With Brian Brown, even the words “just” “if” “and” and “but” are lies. (Hat tip to the late Dorothy Parker.)

Mark F. I like your first point. That is always running through my head when I hear them say “let the voters decide.” I feel like, before that, they said “let the law makers decide,” then changed their tone when that actually happened.

As for your second comment, I think you missed the beauty of Ben’s word play:

“Court-legalized same-sex marriage is just like Stalinist Russia.”

Became

“Court-legalized same-sex marriage is just.”

The NOM rep did not mean to say that last sentence, but it is true.

Yes, I did miss that.

At last I am appreciated, a legend in my own mind.

Guys, I know we kinda like to lean on Brown because he uses bigotry, but we have to have a bit of pity for him. He has 8 rug rats to feed. He needs a lot of chicken feed to do that.

Brian and his wife chose to have 8 children. I don’t feel sorry for him in the slightest.
