READ: FRC's three-part plan toward legally divorcing, proudly oppressing LGBT people

by Jeremy Hooper

First they want to implement a new version of DOMA so that they can stop judges in non-equality states from using the obvious precedents to open up marriage equality. Then they want to completely roll back all marriage equality from the federal level (how "conservative" of them), which would likely, if they had their way, mean legally divorcing the tens of thousands of this nation's legally married same-sex couples. And then they want it clear that the law gives them a special right to use their personal faith to flout any kind of public accommodation law that mandates equal treatment of LGBT customers.
