Wow, FoTF: How's your headline gonna read when equality actually/inevitably *does* win?

by Jeremy Hooper

Yesterday's Prop 8 development was basically procedural. Largely unemotional for both sides. A setback in terms of time, but not a victory or a loss for either side in terms of the law (and in fact, groups like NOM actually seem to like the decisions).

Oh, but leave it to Focus on the Family, ever on a quest to make the 9th Circuit Court seem radical and out of touch with America, to turn the court's process into further slaps in their faces. This is seriously the headline the group's using for its coverage of yesterday's developments:

(*Note: The religious freedom part refers to a separate case revolving around the Mt Soledad cross.
So only the "undermines marriage" part affects us.)

Wow -- we know these Colorado Springs "culture warriors" are all kinds of caught up in the unflattering 9th Circuit portrait-painting that they've taken on as a past time in recent months. But to say yesterday's decision "undermines marriage"? Why that's kind of like saying Bob and Joe's benign happiness under the civil government to which they contribute taxes somehow destroys heterosexuals' marriages.

Oh wait a minute...
