'Yay, personal religious condemnation as public policy,' essentially says Maggie Gallagher

Yes, "big" surely is one word for it, the religious-fueled insistence that congregants use their personal faith to vote against a certain candidate on the basis of one particular matter of *CIVIL* law. But if this is the wagon onto which NOM wishes to keep hitching its civil rights opposition, an informed public (and maybe even IRS?) will surely think of a few more.
