Focus on the Family calls marriage equality 'nonsensical,' 'destructive forcing of a new definition'

by Jeremy Hooper

Focus on the Family and its action arm (called CitizenLink) are the real victims of discrimination in our nation's marriage debate. Here, let Stuart Shepard explain that one to you:


SOURCE: FOTF Citizenlink

I would have absolutely no problem with any one of Mr. Shepard's statements here, if only he'd begin each one with "In my opinion..." Because that's all this is: his faith-driven opinion about how our civil laws should treat people who are L, G, B, and T (*to be clear, Mr. Shepard supports so-called "ex-gay" therapy designed to "change" us). We are making arguments based in constitutional law, and they are countering with "but we don't like it! [harumph!

I suspect that folks like Shepard will keep sharing these personal opinions long after we win the marriage debate in full. I fully support his right to have his own views; he does not have the right to force those into shared public policy.
