Dacus right about it all being a game, wrong about who's offside

by Jeremy Hooper

This is the Pacific Justice Institute's Brad Dacus, responding to his organization's defeated attempt to force Attorney General Jerry Brown and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to defend Prop 8:

People on the left and right should both be mourning the fact that the attorney general and the governor are reneging on their oaths of office

“That’s like having a football team and saying it’s your strategy to not show up for the game. That’s not strategy, that’s surrender
” [SOURCE]

Only problem for Dacus? His "team" is playing a game that fundamentally breaks the rules! There already was a match: Team Bias fouled, Team Equality calledlucy-charlie-football them out on it, and Referee Walker sided with the rules that were provided to the game by our nation's governing documents. Now they who wish to keep all gay people on the sidelines are trying to save face, requesting another chance on the playing field to try to adjust the playbook ever so slightly, in hopes that the same basic runs and passes and kicks and goals will for some reason deliver a winning score. But Coaches Brown and Schwarzenegger are simply saying, "Nuh uh, sorry -- you don't get to schedule a scrimmage here, there, and anywhere simply because you're obsessed with a game that you were never qualified to play! Not if you expect us to show up, you don't."

Surrender? No, no, Bradley. Try: Refusing to surrender to your side, which has been playing political and cultural football with LGBT lives and loves for longer than any of us care to remember!
