FRC dismisses quarter of the nation as 'low hanging fruit'

by Jeremy Hooper

With Minnesota expected to pass marriage equality today, our tally is nearing the dozen state mark (plus D.C.). But that is all meaningless, cries the the anti-gay Family Research Council, since most of those states are too "progressive" to qualify as part of FRC's real America:

With liberal states falling like dominos, Americans must be wondering if this is the end of the road for marriage.

Well, it's not--and here's why. If you look at the dozen states with same-sex "marriage," homosexual activists are picking off the easiest targets: progressive pockets of the country that have rejected traditional morality. Pretty soon, the Left's momentum is going to peak, and all of the low-hanging fruit that it's enjoyed over the last two years will run out. Why are homosexual activists trying to get the Supreme Court to impose a nationwide view of same-sex "marriage" on the country? Because they understand that wherever same-sex "marriage" is in place, people are going to witness first-hand the hidden consequences of redefining marriage. Once parents start losing their rights to instill values in their kids, employers are sued by the state for not violating their religious beliefs, or the government takes away churches' tax-exempt status, more Americans will wake up to the threats of redefining marriage.

Our short-term strategy should be containment. If conservatives can confine same-sex "marriage" to these liberal jurisdictions, the evidence of why this policy won't work will begin to show. More people will realize that this isn't about the marriage altar -- it's about fundamentally altering society. It's time to look at the marriage scoreboard -- 30 states to 12 -- and recognize that same-sex "marriage" isn't a wave that's sweeping the nation. If anything, it's a call to stand for natural marriage -- and keep standing.

FRC Washington Update

Hysterical. If we get Minnesota, that will mean 24% of our states have marriage equality. If you include the nation's capital and calculate on a 51 "state" model, then that moves the percentage up over 25%. Perhaps FRC is willing to write off a quarter of the country, but I suspect most Americans are a little more respectful of our union and its unity.

But if FRC thinks we are nearing a roadblock, then by all means, let them. We're just getting started and do quite well when people underestimate us.
