Brian Brown's odd delusions

Brian S. Brown
I am quoting from the conclusion of a piece that appeared in the Christian Post on Monday. The part that was edited out in the first paragraph was removed by CP:
Obergefell v. Hodges … illegitimately determined that all states must issue and recognize 'marriages' to same-sex couples, imposing the skewed values of a handful of judges on the nation with no legal foundation and in a gross example of legislating from the bench,” said Brown.

“Countless Americans recognize that this decision is illegitimate and unlawful and the March for Marriage provides an opportunity for them to stand up and say so.”

When asked by CP if the Obergefell decision effectively ended the marriage equality debate, Brown replied that the “fight is far from over.”
I find it interesting that the Christian Post reporter is using the term “marriage equality.” The simple fact is that Brown can complain that the ruling in Obergefell is illegitimate and without a legal foundation — and it changes nothing. It is the law of the land. The debate is over unless Brown can come up with 38 states to ratify a constitutional amendment.

Missing from all of Brown's bloated rhetoric is the reason why Obergefell should be reversed. Because some florist violated a nondiscrimination law? Kim Davis perchance? Other than the fact that the Catholic Church disapproves of gay people we are nearly three years since the ruling in United States v. Windsor and a year since Obergefell v. Hodges (June 26, 2013 and June 26, 2015 respectively). Who has been harmed by same-sex marriage? Answer that question Mr. Brown.
