Extreme Homophobic Action: Wisconsin Lawmaker Edition

by Jeremy Hooper

Wisconsin Republican lawmakers are enlisting the Alliance Defense Fund to represent them in fighting a lawsuit that seeks benefits for the partners of gay state workers. The Joint Committee on Legislative Organization voted 6-3 along party lines yesterday to authorize the unbelievably extreme outsourcing of homophobic legal intent.

As you might recall, the ADF is a Christian legal firm co-founded by James Dobson, whose sole mission seems to be fighting anything that they deem too liberal, science-based, or fruity. The right-wing Wisconsin crew cites the left-leaning tendencies of the state's Attorney General and Governor as reasons why they're being forced to seek legal assistance from such religious extremists, who seem to be hellbent on ridding the world of 'da gay.

If the ADF delivers for the Wisconsin Repubs, we hear that they will next recruit the God Hates Fags crew to represent them in fighting gay marriage.

Perhaps we shouldn't be giving them ideas.
