Video(s): Three states, one set of false statements

by Jeremy Hooper

You may think all of the various attempts to amend state constitutions so that they ban marriage equality are cut from the same discriminatory cloth. And you, dear reader, would be absolutely right. The "cruelness hidden behind a compassionate mask" thing is pretty much the same concept no matter where it is espoused. "Protect marriage" always means a million things other than actually protecting marriage. Going to the polls to vote against your fellow citizen is always an act of hostility, no matter the rationale.

However, someone has apparently told Focus on the Family that there's some sort of difference between the way they hide their biased actions behind code-wording from one state to another. That's the only reason we can figure why they would make three different-yet-virtually-identical videos exploring the subtle nuances between their attempts to bastardize civil liberties in Arizona, Florida, and California:

Your thoughts

Ron Prentice (featured in the California video) isn't just a nauseating human being, he's also pretty darn close to a scam artist. See the link below for a quick analysis of his organization's finances, and pity the poor unsuspecting homophobes whose "Yes on 8" donations are lining his pockets rather than actively working to deny our rights....

And how convenient that all of these videos contain minorities. Because FOF is clearly all about civil Whites - I mean - rights.
