United affront: MN anti-gay campaign not just for Catholics anymore

by Jeremy Hooper

You know that National Organization For Marriage/Catholic Church (as if there's a difference) homo-hostile DVD that the local leaders are sending around to state voters? Yea, well -- it's not just the Catholic Church that's joining in on the war against gays' ring fingers. Yesterday, a coalition of North Star State preachers voiced solidarity for the Catholic effort:


Meanwhile, the state's LGBT community continued their daily work of not stifling anyone's right to loathe their lives, not preventing any faith community from shutting gays out of their religious practices, not in any way messing with anyone else's family structure, and not holding press conferences designed for no greater purpose that fostering stigmatization towards certain kind of people. How militant.

**Funny that the one preacher uses Paul Nathanson as backing for his cause. Because as you may remember, Nathanson was one of the researchers who the Prop 8 proponents withdrew from the witness list, and whose deposition video was then used to make the pro-equality case!
