THIS--->'All he is offering us is mainly his opinions'
This is one of my favorite developments in recent culture war memory:
In a bombshell development, a federal judge just threw out the state’s first witness in Michigan’s gay marriage trial, concluding the Princeton-educated philosophy expert [Sherif Girgis] had nothing to offer in this case.
“He’s very eloquent … but right now, all he is offering to us is mainly his opinions,” U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman said of the witness. “The court does not believe ... that he should be allowed to testify.”

Personal opinion is of course the lifeblood of the anti-LGBT movement, which is why they fall apart in court rooms, where the level of scrutiny surpasses that of echo chamber. It's also why they created and aggressively fostered the whole "activist judge" meme, so that they could disparage the venue where they are most vulnerable.
But to hear a judge come right out and dismiss a witness—a protege of NOM cofounder Robby George, I should add—who was scheduled to testify for hours? That's pretty epic! And damning.
