'Concerned Woman' Nance: Marriage equality stands against 'everything on which this country was founded'

by Jeremy Hooper

Penny Nance, Concerned Women For America president:

Screen Shot 2012-12-10 At 11.32.17 Am"By taking these cases, the Supreme Court has the opportunity to affirm our most cherished values by preserving the American people's right to define marriage as the union between one man and one woman. Those who persist in forcing their preferred redefinition of marriage on the country by rule of law stand squarely against everything on which this country was founded - most notably against the freedom of religion, which they argue should be suppressed whenever it interferes with their newly discovered constitutional 'right' to homosexual 'marriage.'" [SOURCE]

Riiiiiiiiiiight, Penny. When we say that we fully respect your right to deny us a religious ceremony, to speak out against us publicly, to maintain all proper religious freedoms and tax exemptions, to worship as you please, and go about your faith-motivated day without any interference from us, we are really saying "TAKE THAT, RELIGION!" You've sure got our number there. I'm sure the Supreme Court of the United States will totally buy that rhetoric.
