Concerned Women    NY

by Jeremy Hooper

   Responding to the unfavorable gay marriage ruling that was handed down last week by NY's highest court, the Concerned Women For America's Jan LaRue (pic.) says:

"This ruling is tremendously important coming from the highest court of New York," said Jan LaRue, CWA's chief counsel. "We are gratified that the ruling and rationale of the Court of Appeals mirrors the arguments in our amicus briefs. We are especially pleased that the Court recognizes that the vast majority of society that rejects same-sex marriage are not 'irrational, ignorant or bigoted' people.'"

So take comfort, NY Court of Appeals; your decision mirrors amicus briefs filed by the same organization whose mouthpieces, in their oppostion to gay rights, say things like...

"...evil doesn't just happen, and evil doesn't create anything by itself. Evil is when you take something good and you pervert it slightly, sometimes so subtly people barely notice but then it becomes an instrument of something else. And what we're seeing is the homosexual movement is attempting to take everything we hold dear in society and twist it just a little bit to make it perverse and then declare that everybody's a little perverse so there's nothing really wrong, there's certainly no transcendent moral order, and it's all aimed eventually at the church."

...and who have bluntly stated that gays are "Going To Go To Hell!" (both sentiments courtesy of CWA's Robert Knight)

Never has this writer been prouder to be a New Yorker! Who knows, maybe Fred Phelps will come out and bless the ruling in the coming days.
