Liberty Counsel's Prop 8, DOMA briefs frame homosexuality as 'lifestyle choice'

by Jeremy Hooper

This comes from the anti-LGBT legal outfit's amicus briefs in the Windsor and Perry cases (same text in both):

Not a huge surprise. After all, Liberty Counsel went absolutely apeshit after Prop 8 lost its first round, attacking the Alliance Defending Freedom (formerly the Alliance Defense Fund) for not using so-called "reparative therapy" in testimony. LC works from the decided belief that gay people can and should change. They own this view, which is even somewhat admirable in a way.

My question: Which side is this friend-of-the-court brief really befriending? Because frankly, I am more than comfortable with the "protect marriage" lawyers knocking our sexual orientations and presenting them as "changeable." In fact, i insist.
