FRC's 'state of marriage': A picture worth a thousand 'you're factually wrongs!'

by Jeremy Hooper

If The Family Research Counsel thinks they know so much more about DOMA, marriage, and constitutional law than the rest of us, then they really should look at their own, silly "Defend DOMA" site:

For on this site, if one clicks the "In Defense of 1-Man,1-Woman Marriage" tab, here is the map that comes up:

Wait: New Hampshire and VT listed as civil unions rather than marriage states? Iowa not listed as a marriage state? No mention of civil unions passing in Hawaii (beginning in 1/12) or Illinois (CU's begin 6/1/11)? No recognition of the strong domestic partnerships in places like Washington? And not to mention the biggie for FRC's interests: That there's no listing for the District of Columbia, another marriage equality jurisdiction and the site of FRC's own headquarters?

Hey, FRC: Before you start schooling the public with "sermon starters," bulletin inserts, and powerpoint presentations, perhaps you should better surmise the actual state of civil marriage in this nation. The picture is changing has changed, whether your Photoshop program recognizes it or not.
