Minnesota either attacked by aliens, hijacked by terrorists, or blessed with marriage equality; you decide
When his organization used the state legislature to pass a (voter-rejected) marriage amendment, it was just fair practice. But when those in favor of equal civil rights for taxpayers in same-sex relationships passed marriage equality bill? Why is was a "hostile takeover," don't 'cha know?
So says MFC president Tom Prichard:
"Polls at the beginning of the legislative session showed the majority of Minnesotans support traditional marriage,"…"and one poll showed only 38 percent supported redefining marriage. Definitely I don't think Minnesotans wanted this, and in some respects, we view it as a hostile takeover." —Minnesota Family Council president Tom Prichard
(*see more of Prichard's rhetoric here)
And in what respect would that be, Mr. Prichard? I'd really love to hear how the duly elected legislature's passage of a clean bill is either "hostile" or a "takeover," especially coming six months after the state's voters rejected the anti-gay side at the polls.
I think by "in some respects," Mr. Prichard really means "in a manner that will rile up anger through loose language." That's certainly something. I wouldn't, however, use the word "respect" anywhere in the same sentence.
