ADF's 6th week of prayer: Solicitor General gets the middle, lack-of-blessing square

by Jeremy Hooper

Those of you who have seen the past five weeks' sheets know how it goes: The first box, which always features someone from the anti-gay side, gets a blessing; the third square, which is always a Supreme Court justice, gets a largely neutral call for "wisdom and discernment"; the middle square, always someone on the side of LGBT equality, gets a prayer about "manifest[ing] goodness in his/her life" (because, you see, the goodness cannot possibly be there already).

Here's this week's take, with U.S. Solicitor General Donald Verilli getting that middle, "manifest goodness" slot. And this week we also get a bonus dose of faux "victimization," with Christian photographers who wanted to violate nondiscrimination policy in a state that doesn't marriage or even civil unions somehow portrayed as a casualty of the marriage equality conversation:

I can't wait for the final week, when I expect the ADF, in a last fit of desperation, to pray that the governing documents of this fair and free nation don't say what they actually say.
