Audio: God is calling on Maine clerks, notaries to oppose marriage rights

by Jeremy Hooper

Just after midnight, civil marriage equality will come to Maine. Or as the two men who most fully fought and lost in their quest to exalt discrimination above fairness, Bob Emrich and Carroll Conley, call the development: "A time for Christians to step up and martyr themselves, for this is 'the Coliseum' of our day" (paraphrase).

A snip and link to full:


Faith Matters in Maine [WHCF FM]

In their defense, Bob and Carroll are pretty much telling their supporters that they're going to have to face whatever consequences might greet their (in)actions. But still, the very fact that they are continuing to act as if this wholly unburden some act of fairness places some sort of exceptional constraint on their day-to-day lives is ridiculous. Oh, and self-centered.
