ADF prays for God to 'manifest goodness' in life of #Prop8 plaintiff Paul Katami

by Jeremy Hooper

They've already taken it upon themselves to pray for Kristin Perry, Ted Olson, and others who they are opposing in court. The week, it's gay man Paul Katami who gets the second slot, which is always reserved for an oppositional voice and coupled with the "manifest goodness in his/her life" line:

The difference might be subtle, but it's quite obvious to those of us who pay attention to this stuff. The first slot, always saved for someone on their side, gets a prayer geared toward wisdom, protection, joy, blessing, and perseverance. But that second slot? It's all about manifesting goodness, with the obvious implication being that the goodness is not already there.

Whatever. As long as we manifest good legal arguments, I think we'll be okay.
