Amici mild: An important point about anti-equality court briefs

by Jeremy Hooper

A compelling talking point courtesy of lesbi–legal eagle Nan Hunter:

Screen Shot 2013-02-07 At 1.58.42 Pm "To see how marginalized the on-the-ground groups trying to block gay marriage have become, you have to peruse the amicus briefs filed by organizations and individuals supporting Cooper and Clement. There are no bar associations, no professional associations, no national civil rights groups, no corporate business voices, and no big prestigious firms that have written the briefs. Some amici are formidable: the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Attorneys General of 17 states, for example. But most of the intellectual, professional and cultural elites have switched sides."
