Hey, FOF: Their legal bonds are not alleged!

by Jeremy Hooper

This headline comes from Focus on the Family's Citizenlink:

Picture 7-145

This response comes from Good As You's Jeremy Hooper:

'Obtained a drivers license.'
'
Filed for unemployment.'
'
Was elected to public office.'
'
Utilize city trash collection and recycling services'

I can do it too, FOF. I can put fear quotes around any civil concept. But guess what, Quotey McQuotepants? It does nothing to negate the legality or actuality of the aforementioned civil concept, just like your ridiculous fear quotes do nothing to negate the legality of Connecticut same-sex marriages. In fact, the quotes just make you look (a) wasteful of precious editorial space, (b) oblivious to accepted style guidelines, and (c) silly.

It's one thing when your side uses these fear quotes when talking about same-sex marriage in theory. However, when it crosses over from theoretical to real and tangible, it only helps us drill home the absurdity that lie behind your sides' tactics! No reasoned reader who comes across this headline is going to have their mind changed into believing that are Connecticut marriages fake because the scary punctuation told them to. There are, however, scores of reasoned readers who are learning more and more every day just how little the 'pro-family' (quotes intended) team cares about actuality, and how willing you all are to alter or mask whatever they can't change.

Though we totally understand, FOF, if you want to use these marks --
!@%$#%@! -- to detail what they LEGALLY MARRIED couples do on their honeymoons!

They can put as many quotation marks as they want around it. All that matters is that Connecticut gays have it xP

Someone's bitter~

Remember, FOTF only is against gay rights because they 'love' us.
