Video: Virginia's head anti-gay activist says ruling was 'less a legal argument and more a press release'

by Jeremy Hooper

Victoria Cobb, an "ex-gay" advocate who is so committed to inequality that she refuses to even accept gay tolerance programs in schools, doesn't agree with Judge Arenda Wright Allen's awesome ruling in support of civil marriage equality. Shocker!

What's funny, however, is that Ms. Cobb spends her time at the podium stringing together platitude after platitude but then, without apparent irony or self-reflection, accuses the judge of essentially writing a press release rather than a legal ruling. Have a listen:

Translation: We would've loved this judge and everything she wrote if it had gone our way, but since it didn't, she, her credibility, and the very idea of the independent judiciary's determinations on matters pertaining to LGBT rights must suffer.
