I agree - and I think perhaps Brown does share the views of LaBarbara and Mass Resistance, but may believe it is more politically expedient to narrow the focus to protecting marriage from the gay onslaught. He is a classical Thomistic philosophical thinker, and often cites Aquinas. So I cannot see him being too far from those two.
Brian Brown and Maggie Gallagher are on record supporting the adoption of children by homosexuals and the repeal of DADT. They also seem to be somewhat ambivalent on granting “civil unions” to homosexuals. I’d hardly call that Thomistic.
Don’t get me wrong, I support NOM with my dollars because they are the powerhouse opposition to the attack on real marriage in all the states actively in play. But unless they move on to completely and unapologetically repudiating homosexuality and all its permutations, they are ultimately fighting a losing battle.
