What's going on with ProtectMarriage.com?

by Jeremy Hooper

We gay folk of course know it as the official Prop 8 website, which in the few years since that ignoble vote has been used to track the ongoing legal developments associated with the discriminatory ban. But it now seems that ProtectMarriage.com is in the midst of some sort of a revamp:

So what, other than creepy apparitions rising up from a cornfield, might we expect to experience once the URL that bias built finishes its construction? Could it become…

-> [a] A social media site where any civil right that gets a majority of dislikes will immediately be overturned?

-> [b] A Groupon-like site where folks can purchase even cheaper talking points than the campaign typically offers?

-> [c] A video sharing site where Prop 8 backers can post clips of gay weddings and analyze at which point in the ceremony, exactly, the societal rot sets in

-> [d] A gaming community where the usual political football and pin-the-problem-on-the-gay antics are turned into digital time-wasters

-> [e] An online retailer that sells bomb shelters into which heterosexual couples can and should enter on their wedding nights in order to ensure that adequate marriage protection greets their shared days together.

-> [f] A stock photo company, since these folks have surely connected enough of them over the years to start a cottage industry

The possibilities are endless! We'll just have to wait for whatever level of protection they plan to offer the internet. Tread carefully in the meantime.
