Audio: When a Barber works in the Knight, someone's gonna get cut
Because when it comes to objective legal analysis and unbiased assessments of congressional budgeting, one really should rely on the joint expertise of Matt "one man violently cramming his penis into another man’s lower intestine and calling it ‘love’” Barber and Robert "gays want to destroy peace" Knight:
Cost of Same-Sex Benefits Bill [Focus on the Family]
It's unclear why Focus on the Family needed to outsource these foregone conclusions to uber far right voices that lie outside of their own Colorado Springs' stable. But it is the holiday season, a time for giving (opportunities to some of your movement's most hyperbolic voices of extremism) and getting (a weakened ability to claim the moral high ground).
"Barber says the [act] is possibly illegal ... he's looking into a lawsuit." (0:43-0:57)
Could someone tell me how this lawyer plans to argue that a law passed by congress is illegal (based on another law passed by the same body)? How did he ever pass the Bar without realizing how laws are made (, repealed, amended, ect.)?
He sickens me (and not just for the obvious reasons). He is a dean at a law school and doesn't even understand the legal system.
[PS - I can't believe this short and off-handed comment pissed me off more than most of the stuff I read here.]

In point of fact I believe that this joker does understand the system. What is galling is to remember that these folks are from the same camp that believes the courts should have no bearing on issues of civil rights (at least as long as that issue is marriage equality - "Let The People Vote"). This strikes me as more a case of political-right expediency than lack of understanding of the judicial/legislative systems.
Clearly, ignorance is not required for the full flowering of hypocrisy. What is necessary is the cocky self-assurance of moral and intellectual superiority that these pinheads invariably display.
