My friend and NOM's President Brian Brown absolutely put a smackdown on Dan Savage the other day in their grand debate about marriage in Seattle, Washington. For those who don't know him, Savage is the foul-mouthed face of the gay marriage movement. To understand how badly Brian demolished Savage, consider this: Savage is complaining about the subject chosen for the debate (which his hand-picked moderator selected); he's complaining about the location (his own dining room table, also his choice); The New York Times reporter who moderated decided to write a kitschy odd-ball article about the encounter (including how he was drunk), rather than a substantive review of the debate, and Savage has buried the video of the debate down near the bottom of his own website.
In other words, Brian so demolished Dan Savage that gay activists and the media now want to bury it.

Did I mention that Frank Schubert is full of shit?
Public relations consultant, Frank Schubert, is National Organization for Marriage's campaign manager. Presumably, NOM is his only client. According to Schubert, Brown obliterated Dan Savage in the "dining room debate." He also suggest that gays are not pleased with Savage's performance. Nothing could be further from the truth. Dan destroyed Brown's religious objections to marriage equality and he did so while treating Brown as a guest (with the utmost courtesy). As for that writer from the New York Times (Mark Oppenheimer), Schubert takes a cheap shot. Like most religious fundamentalists, Schubert does not understand satire. By the way "my friend" should read "my employer."
