Kevin Smith has plenty of time to waste on marriage bias, no time to answer for same

by Jeremy Hooper

At today's House Judiciary Hearing on New Hampshire marriage equality and its potential repeal (still ongoing, listen live here), Cornerstone Policy Research/Cornerstone Action president Kevin Smith gave a typical speech. He put civil rights in the hands of majorities, as if putting civil rights before public vote is in any way an ideal we hold dear here in America. He also falsely likened President Obama's stance to his, even though, unlike Smith, the prez supports civil unions and strongly opposes marriage repeals like the one currently on the table. In general, Kevin acted like the state's marriage equality law has somehow damaged his state, even if there's no evidence of that. At all.

But the most annoying part came at the end, when Kevin, unlike any other speaker before or since, disingenuously cited time constraints so he could refuse to take any questions:

Hmm. Could the demanded lack of accountability be because Kevin didn't want to address why, exactly, if his cause is limited to marriage, his organization is actually pushing for scientifically-discredited gay "change"?
