Advance read: Tom Minnery's DOMA testimony (*updated: Whelan and Nimocks too)

by Jeremy Hooper

Diligent U.S. Senators wanting to know what Focus on the Family's Tom Minnery will say at tomorrow's DOMA hearing can get a sneak peek right here:

2011 07 19 Minnery Doma Testimony

Personally, I'd ask Tom why Focus on the Family's website, under its marriage section, calls homosexuality "a particularly evil lie of Satan" (a comment attributed to FoTF's Glenn Stanton, who TOM cites twice in his testimony). After all, isn't that really the major problem here -- their belief that our families are built on a lie? At the core? Because of Beelzebub? Wouldn't that sort of thing seem to trump whatever contrived policy concerns they might toss out?

Break

**MORE: And now the prepared remarks of the other two anti- witnesses: The Alliance Defense Fund's Austin Nimocks and Ed Whelan, president of the conservative Ethics and Public Policy Center:
