Brian Brown, president of the National
Organization for Marriage (NOM), has suggested that the Supreme Court
accepted two cases on the issue of gay marriage to expose the
hypocrisy of supporters.
Appearing on Mike Huckabee's radio
show, Brown said the two cases made conflicting arguments.
“On one hand, they're arguing the
U.S. Constitution demands same-sex marriage. It's the federal
government that has to redefine marriage throughout the country and
overturn all of these laws that have been passed overwhelmingly in
these 30 states through constitutional amendments, and 10 other
states through statute,” he said, referring to Hollingsworth v.
Perry, the case challenging Proposition 8, California's gay
“In the DOMA case its arguing, 'Oh
no, no, no, no. This is a states' issue.'”
“So it's trying to argue two
different things. And I think that's why taking all of the cases at
once will sort of expose a bit of the sort of hypocrisy going on in
these two very different and mutually exclusive arguments they're
making,” he added. (The audio is embedded on this page. Visit
