The real shame, Mark Creech, is that your side will never admit this kind of animus in court

by Jeremy Hooper

CreechResponding to an ACLU-driven lawsuit that seeks to overturn North Carolina's discriminatory ban on marriage equality, longtime Tar Heel state foe-of-the-'mos Mark Creech says the following:

"Demanding that the state of North Carolina change its constitution to accommodate a lifestyle choice that not only mocks real marriage, the true building block of our society, but also attempts to turn a moral wrong into a civil right is farcical as well as shameful," he tells OneNewsNow. [ONN]

Which is of course pretty funny, since if Mark Creech were a lawyer for his side and he went to court on the "homosexuality is a lifestyle choice" and "same-sex marriage turns a moral wrong into a civil right" platforms, the North Carolina ban would fall away faster than you could say "Congressman Clay Aiken." Creech would instantly turn the court room into the "farcical" arena that he is accusing the ACLU of making it into.

His quote here is representative of where the anti-gay movement is right now. The most outraged, combative, and committed are the ones who are the biggest liabilities. The ones who are so disillusioned by equality that they see the very mention of it to be "farcical as well as shameful" are the very ones who are helping equality activists highlight the great shame the comes with discrimination.

Which is my way of saying: Keep talking, Mr. Creech. In fact, can someone on the anti-equality side please put this guy on the witness stand? K, thanks.
