Really, Fox News? A 'brawl'?

by Jeremy Hooper

This is how Fox News is headlining a report on the recent marriage equality advancements in the NJ, MD, and WA legislatures:

Because that's where we still are in America, apparently. Those who fight against gay people, their rights, their loves, their families, and their morality (often alongside threats of God's wrath or advocacy for gay "change") are simply being conservative "values voters." But those who take a peaceful stand for benign, equal, deserved rights under our shared civil government? We're opening a "brawl," don't ya know?

Of course in truth, those who push for equal treatment of certain, long-denied taxpayers are actually opening a door to a better, overdue future. If certain, self-appointed "morality" overseers have chosen to see that as an act of war, then that's not on us. There is only one side who wants to "brawl" -- the rest of us just want to live.
