MD Marriage Alliance head again says comments were taken 'out of context'; gives me another reason to post them

by Jeremy Hooper

At a Friday news conference, Maryland Marriage Alliance head again accused people like me of taking Pastor Robert Anderson "grossly out of context":

So that being the case, let me again show you the clips where Anderson makes the now-infamous "worthy of death" comments, says gays and our supporters are "on the wrong side of eternity" (much to McCoy's delight), and claims that marriage equality for same-gender couples will lead to legalized prostitution and incest. Here it is in two clips—the edited and the longer form:

No, Derek McCoy, what is really out of context here is the way you all define concepts like responsibility. This man, while appearing on a campaign panel, made the most extreme charges one could possibly make about gays, our supporters, and our eternal futures. Yet the best you, someone who LAUGHED HIM ON, can do in the aftermath is to shoot the messenger. Weak. And outrageous.
