Brian Brown makes some comments confirming that he is in denial

Just a couple of comments that Brian Brown, head of National Organization for Marriage, has made in the aftermath of his pathetic little demonstration on Saturday that attracted about 200 followers.

“Well, you know, just like the life movement, Roe v. Wade didn’t stop the life movement,” he said.  “There were a couple of tough years, but out of the wreckage of Roe arose a vibrant, winning coalition.”

“It’s going to take years, maybe decades, but we need a movement that has this march to be a living symbol year in and year out that we’re here, we’re not going away, and we’re growing,” he continued.
Because same-sex marriage is just like Roe. Sure. Except for the fact that the Catholic Church disapproves of both same-sex marriage (underpinned by its disapproval of gay people) and abortion the two issues are not remotely similar. There is no reason for people to become passionate about preventing gay people from getting married. This is as silly as suggesting that the people will rise up against the legalization of contraceptives due to Griswold v. Connecticut in 1965 and Eisenstadt v. Baird in 1972 (which extended the right to unmarried people). The Church opposed those as well.

Brown was a bit more unhinged  as reported by KKTV in Colorado Springs:
The president of the National Organization for Marriage, Brian Brown, says it's unconstitutional.

"The United States Supreme Court did not have any jurisdiction or right to redefine the nature of marriage and to steal from the people their right to vote on such questions," said Brown. "The decision, I believe, will be overturned."
High school civics — Marbury v. Madison. The Supreme Court is the final arbiter of what is, or is not, constitutional. Questions pertaining to civil right are properly addressed by the Court rather than the whims of the electorate. As for Mr. Brown's belief that Obergefell will be overturned; Mr. Brown believes a whole lot of stuff that make absolutely no sense because he is a religious extremist. For example, in spite of a mountain of scientific evidence to the contrary, he believe that homosexuality is a choice. Brown sees himself as a modern day Knight Templar. Good luck with that.
