Wherein we temporarily curb the decency lesson for one involving grammar

by Jeremy Hooper

Reacting to the news that the Illinois Board of Elections has ruled against placing a non-binding gay marriage amendment referendum on the state's November ballot, the Illinois Family Institute's Peter LaBarbera, a primary backer of the resolution, is quoted by the AP as optimistically saying:

"It's not near over"

Reacting to Mr. LaBarbera's reaction, we say:

"Although Petey seems perfectly comfortable when it comes to lying about queers, he seems less sure of himself when it comes to "'ly'ing" his 'nears.' Because while 'It's not near over' may have sounded like correct syntax, it is as faulty as Petey's ostensible desire to charge gays with a 'sin tax.' 'It's not nearly over' or 'It's nowhere near over' would've been far better ways for Petey to convey his point -- but how can we expect a strong sentence from a man who seemingly wants homosexuality to be punished with one?"

Be sure to stick around later in the day, when we'll criticize each and every member of our opposition for continuing to use the term "pro-family," even though their actions in terms of gay members of the family seem to wholly contradict the title's very definition.
