At least the IFI admits it wants to ban us

by Jeremy Hooper

The other side hates when we use the word "ban." For years, the National Organization For Marriage even ran a directive that told supporters to stay away from the "ban" word because they know it helps our side.

But I have to give the IFI points here. The group that always follows its own drummer in terms of rhetoric (read: they routinely say truly vitriolic things without regard for pragmatic political messaging) is now coming right and admitting that theirs is a ban:

The arguments in the argument, which come from the far-right Thomas More Society, are of course silly. Legal precedents support equality, and full civil rights are in our inevitable future. Because, well—duh.

But if they want to help us make the "ban" point, then I certainly won't stand in their way. Bans never win in the end.
