Weeping Against Equality

Via Pam’s House Blend comes this picture of Bryan Brown of the National Organization for Marriage crying when the New York legislature approved a bill legalizing same-sex marriage.

I know, Bryan. I know. It’s just so terribly unfair, isn’t it? You have a God-given right to make sure that gay people suffer as much as possible. How dare that demon-controlled legislature take away your divine authority! I mean, it’s almost like they think gay people are actually human beings with an unalienable right to live their lives according to the dictates of their own conscience instead of yours.

You’re the real victim here, not them. Allowing gay people to marry in New York does not grant them any rights, it violates your right to impose your oppressive religious rules on other people. Won’t someone think of the authoritarian Christian right?
