Anti-gay figure repeats chilling, un-American call to defy pro-equality SCOTUS decisions
The anti-gay crowd continues to misunderstand what the courts mean when they use the word "opinion":
"We say unequivocally that if the Supreme Court were to issue a decision that redefined marriage or set the foundation to redefine marriage, that decision would be an illegitimate decision"
—Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver (one of the writers of that new marriage statement in which a whole assortment of "pro-family" types pledge open defiance)
Shots of loving same-sex couples celebrating their peaceful freedoms vs. images of outraged conservatives rioting in the streets against the fair procedure of our independent judiciary? I'm okay with how that will play out, frankly.
At least, I should clarify, I'm okay with how that will play out for us in public opinion. I'm much more concerned about what Mr. Staver's truly dangerous vow will mean on the ground for everyday LGBT people, particularly in less progressive areas. We must be vigilant about protecting ourselves.
