Video: Anti-equality pastors link discriminatory cause to nobility of MLK, others

by Jeremy Hooper

Pastors who have spent the past decade or more trying to discriminate against us in civil law are actually the ones striving to "preserve liberty." So claims this latest drip from the well of egregious spin:

I don't think there has ever been a political movement quite like our opposition's. Sure, there have been many people on the wrong side of various fights, but these guys (and I say "guys" quite pointedly because 98% of them are male) are unique in their jaw-dropping willingness to shirk any and all responsibility for what they are actually doing (/have already done).

If history remembers any one united achievement of this coalition, it will be their messaging discipline when it comes to this, their determined (and obvious) effort to convince us that "victim," when applied this particular minority rights fight, means something other than what we'd always thought it meant.
