FRC: Pro-gay Obama admin poses 'greatest threat to the Constitution since the Civil War'

by Jeremy Hooper

Citing examples like marriage equality, as well as cloaked references to bills like the LGBT-inclusive Employment Nondiscrimination Act and situations like the ones involving the wedding vendors who think they have a "right" to flout local nondiscrimination laws in order to deny same-sex couples, the ever ahistorical Family Research Council is now claiming that our nation is facing its greatest constitutional crisis since the Civil War that literally pitted this nation against itself. This comes from the anti-LGBT organization's latest cash beg:

Of course the truth (i.e. the exact opposite of what this false-witness-bearing org tells supporters in order to raise filthy lucre) is that everything they call a "threat" to the constitution is actually an act of constitutional preservation. Civil marriage equality is moving forward and marriage bans are failing precisely because of the constitution and its promises. Judges side with LGBT consumer protection rather than wanton discrimination because the nondiscrimination laws that mandate such a scenario are constitutionally sound. Crucial church/state separations hold up in court because the wall of separation is an American value. And, interestingly enough, much of this was clarified in the 14th Amendment —an amendment adopted precisely because of the Civil War, its fallout, and its lessons.

Obviously, FRC is just stirring the pot in hopes of filling theirs with gold. Too bad their attempt to stay in bu$ine$$ comes at the expense of both reason and the republic.
