'It's us versus the elites!' cries campaign that's steered from NOM's elite offices on D.C's K Street

by Jeremy Hooper

Oh, those pesky "elites" who think that Washington state should support civil equality and not Joseph Backholm's personal, faith-motivated view on religious marriage:

Jbackholm No Background1317082757Microsoft billionaires and rich corporations like Starbucks have told us that they don’t support honoring what God designed — marriage as the union of one man and one woman. But our laws don’t belong to billionaires and big corporations, they belong to the people.

And with your help the people can overcome the attempted influence of corporations and elite in this fight.

The People versus the Elites [Preserve Marriage Washington]

Basically, if you (a) sell consumer goods and (b) support the equality of all who might want to purchase said items, you are now an "elite" against "real America" and/or God. Just like supporting basic fairness is now "attacking marriage," discriminating against LGBT people is now "protecting religious freedom," and making life harder for your neighbor now constitutes "traditional values."

Got all that? No? Well whatever, don't even worry about it—linguists are confident the "pro-family" language will fall from favor within a decade or so.
