Bull, lied into anti-equality submission

by Jeremy Hooper

After making all kinds of claims about the Colorado media and its supposed mistreatment of social conservatives' viewpoints during the civil unions debate process, Focus on the Family's Jenny Tyree writes this about the Colorado House committee that ultimately opposed the idea of basic fairness for gay couples:

"We commend the committee members for standing strong [on civil unions], and for not giving in to this kind of pressure. We are with you. We know just how it feels to stand up to this kind bullying." [SOURCE]

Yea, Jen? It's the nation's wealthiest "pro-family" group, responsible for countless anti-gay bans as well as immeasurable animus, that deserves the sympathy here? And the ones being bullied are the GOP majority members on the House committee that stood with Focus on the Family in opposition of these very basic civil rights rights? That's what you're going with on this one?

Well guess it's time to send another reminder to Focus staffers and the public at large: The Book of Excuses for Teacher When She Finds Out You Stole The Smaller Kid's Lunch Money (4th ed.) is actually not a transferrable tome meant for all adult situations. There are better sources available, you just have to agree to use them.
