On 9/11 anniversary, Focus on the Family keeps fighting 21st century's real enemy

by Jeremy Hooper

Yesterday, while a nation both honored the 9/11 fallen and fretted over potential wars to come, Focus on the Family's Citizenlink arm ran yet another report on why we must keep fighting gay taxpayers from achieving legal parity. Even more offensive, they shrouded their "protect marriage" piece in the American flag:

In a way, 9/11 and marriage (in)equality have run parallel courses. When 21st century history books are written, both will be at the forefront of the first decade's discussions. Both "fights" are Bush era definitives; wars, be the "culture wars" or literal ones, have both rallied and undermined our national strength.

Focus on the Family is one of the chief organizations that forced this "culture war" on us, making us pause our lives and fight this contrived fight for the past decade or more (and for at least a few more years to come). There are many, many, many things from the early 21st century that I will never forget. This callous war against gay people's ring fingers is high on the list.
