Bryan Fischer: Marriage equality supporters are like baseball's legendarily winning team

by Jeremy Hooper

The '27 Yankees are famed for being really, really, really good. In fact, according to the sporting experts at Wikipedia, the team is remembered as one of the best in history. This team's mighty lineup is where the phrase "Murderers' Row" comes from.

Which is why I'm thrilled that one of the most antigay men in America, the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer, seems to think those of us who are on the right side of the marriage issue are the modern equivalents of this winning team. In reference to North Carolina's Attorney General saying he would no longer challenge Team Marriage Equality in court, Fischer writes:

Suited up. But still usually lost.

If that's the framework you want to use, B, I'll take it. It's the most honest assessment I've heard from the AFA in some time.
