The Hate Bus - One More Diatribe from Brian Brown for Good Measure

Brian S. Brown, leader of National Organization for Marriage, has provided another email missive about his anti-trans mobile bigotry-billboard promoting the teachings of the Catholic Church. The Vatican has decided that transgender people don't really exist. Their presence is terribly inconvenient. By the way, Mr. Brown, what does any of this have to do with marriage?

Brown writes:
I have an important announcement: NOM has joined with the International Organization for the Family (IOF) and CitizenGO, a community of active citizens who promote life, family and liberty, to sponsor a #FreeSpeechBus tour promoting the truth of gender. Starting today, our bus will make appearances at the United Nations, Trump Tower, Yale University and other locations with the message that gender is determined by biology rather than by emotions and feelings, and to call on all Americans to respect the free speech rights of citizens to debate these issues without fear of being demeaned, harassed, or threatened with retaliation.
I know that some of this is repetitive but the message is idiotic. Gender is settled science. They keep trying to insist that gender identity is the product of some bizarre hypothesis. Not because of any scientific study, mind you, but because some theologian without relevant training and experience says so. For lack of a better word this entire enterprise is simply stupid. Brown can say anything he wants, no matter how moronic. However, his free speech rights are not superior to the free speech rights of people to criticize his imbecility. Hold yourself out to ridicule and you should expect to he justly ridiculed. What? Do I hurt Brown's feelings?

About his insane planned “press conference:”
A key point that I will make is that gender is based on biology, not bigotry. Men and women were created equally, each given a gender that is fixed, immutable and complementary. Rather than perpetuate a lie that gender can be changed based on emotions and feelings, we should encourage people to embrace and love who they were made to be.
Brown is a bigot and that's a fact. That entire paragraph reads like someone from a different religious bent who is insisting that the earth is 6,000 years old and that man domesticated dinosaurs. Those folks are off by a few billion years. Brown is just, well … off.

But wait. LGBT radicals created his confusion:
The push by LGBT extremists to redefine gender is the logical fallout of their successful effort to redefine (in the law) marriage. But while the law can be based on a lie, reality can never be so based. Gender cannot be redefined in reality any more than marriage can be redefined in reality. We were created male and female, in God's image, complementary beings made for each other. This very gender complementarity is at the heart of marriage, which brings together the two halves of humanity to create the environment from which new life can spring forth.
Oh shit. It's about marriage after all — and I have about run out of synonyms for idiotic. I guess that dumb will have to suffice.
Pope Francis has been a powerful opponent of "gender ideology" that is being advanced by LGBT activists and extremists. He describes it as being a dangerous element of a "global war trying to destroy marriage" an institution he describes as God's most beautiful creation. Further, he has declared it an "annihilation of man as the image of God."
Well if he says so then it must be. It's a “global war.” Game of Thrones' barefoot “High Sparrow” made more sense and the really good thing is that he and his hierarchy got blown up by wild fire after only two seasons.

This whole thing gets more inane by the sentence. The text ends with this:
We call for a civil, respectful, debate of the issues on behalf of the American people.
What is it that Brown wants to debate? This isn't about accommodating a diverse society. It is akin to posturing for a civil debate about the effects of gravity or the speed of light. And we all know how this silliness ultimately concludes:
