National Organization for Marriage's Brian Brown spoke to a small crowd of anti-gay marriage supporters in Atlanta on August 7th, 2010. Brown compared the fight to keep same-sex marriages outlawed to the anti-slavery movement and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s fight for civil rights. Videos after the jump.
Dr. Alveda King, niece of civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., also spoke at the National Organization for Marriage “Summer for Marriage” rally. King commented on how her family was pro-family, including her uncle and his wife Coretta Scott King.
In a somewhat ironic twist from the National Organization for Marriage’s Atlanta rally, a NOM-backed musical performance called for “unity” and for people to “stop tearing each other down.” Counter-protesters cheered during the song.
