NOM's President Brian Brown Calls Out GLAAD For Hypocrisy


National Organization for Marriage

Washington, D.C.—In response to Kirk Cameron's pro-marriage video for the Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance (which has been viewed over 40,000 times on YouTube), GLAAD President Herndon Graddick in a statement claimed Cameron's comments were "designed specifically to hurt [LGBT] families." GLAAD went on to label Cameron an "anti-gay extremist."

"Graddick and GLAAD clearly cannot appreciate the hypocrisy of attacking Kirk Cameron for his positive comments about marriage and family," Brian Brown, President of NOM, commented. "GLAAD is happy to recruit celebrities who favor redefining marriage as their spokespeople but is outraged when pro-marriage celebrities speak up for the sanctity of marriage."

Brown continued: "I encourage all fair-minded Americans to watch the Cameron video for themselves to see the real face of the pro-marriage movement. GLAAD has no right to bully good people who oppose redefining marriage by labeling them ‘extremists' and accusing them of seeking to harm others. If GLAAD truly cared about decency and respect they would let both sides of the marriage debate have their full say."
