Wrong Penn used in AFA's picture

by Jeremy Hooper

We knew that the American Family Association's One News Now site twisted the news, but we did think they at least tried to stay up to date on the developments that they proceed to misrepresent! Though judging by this new report, we might have given the outlet too much credit:

5/9/2008

A constitutional amendment that would protect traditional marriage is one step closer to getting on the ballot in Pennsylvania.

Pro-family activists in Pennsylvania are working feverishly to get a constitutional amendment protecting traditional marriage through both legislative bodies in that state. By a vote of 18 to 8, the Senate Appropriations Committee sent a marriage protection amendment to the full Senate. S.B. 1250 would define marriage as only between a man and a woman in Pennsylvania.

Diane Gramley, president of the American Family Association of Pennsylvania, says the amendment now heads to the full Senate where it is expected to pass. It will then go to the House, where she says it will be a tough fight.
...
Pro-family forces have until the end of June to get the amendment through both legislative bodies. Then the entire process must be repeated next year for the measure to appear on the ballot in November 2009.

Only problem for ONN? The amendment was already shelved by the Senate. Two days ago. And at this point, it's highly unlikely bordering on impossible that the measure could return this legislative session. It's not one step closer to passage -- it's one step closer to being thrown into the dustbin of Keystone state history where it belongs!

Come on, One News Now. You are really starting to make it too easy!

The future of marriage in Penn. [ONN]

Your thoughts

I have already sent them a very nice comment about the amendment. I wonder if they will publish it.

Now the 'real' link works... but the story is still days old and WRONG, luckily.

They never publish any of my comments either! Probably because I use words that they don't understand???
