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

But really when 40 Orthodox rabbis tell their people its against Torah law to vote for Weprin, that has to be big.
"


- National Organization For Marriage Chair 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.
