Liberty Counsel: Supporting wrong bar, denouncing right one

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 10-110The Florida Bar Association, realizing that fairness under the law is well within their purview, has come out in support of Circuit Judge Cindy Lederman's ruling that the state's ban on gay adoption is unconstitutional. But the social conservatives at the Liberty Council, realizing that developments like this one aren't good for their desires to support the lie that civil fairness is a two-sided matter in which both teams' arguments deserve equal footing, are trying everything they can to stop the Sunshine State's professional legal organization from having an opinion on this matter. Check out the demand letter that Mat Staver and company have put into circulation:


Liberty Counsel Letter to FL Bar

The walls are closing in. The informed minds are finally holding baseless biases accountable. And an entire anti-gay movement, long supported by short-sighted public opinion, is now living with more fear than they would ever admit.

As goes the Florida Bar Association, so goes the entire "culture war."

Guess all 6 LC Bar Members may have to resign. AWWWWW!

Oh, those lawyers and their "legaleese". Hard to make sense of exactly WHAT their argument is, but to this lay-person (who was just laying with his partner a few hours ago) it sounds like they're trying to argue on technicalities alone.

Yep, sounding pretty desperate to me...

Very interesting letter--I'm wondering if they do have a legal point. Has there been any legal analysis of those who are supporters of the board's action?
