Virginia's top anti-gay group invites you to marriage of Discrimination and Faith Overreach

by Jeremy Hooper

At the end of this month, the Family Foundation of Virginia will begin its forty day fast geared toward stopping same-sex marriage in theirs, a state where multiple courts have now ruled in favor of equality. Here is the formal invite of the thoroughly faith-driven ceremony:

As is always the case with the anti-equality movement, this org. is making it all about the religious ceremony, which will not at all be affected by civil marriage equality. Those churches that oppose civil marriage equality will retain every right to keep such ceremonies between the Beloved Bridegroom and the Bride of Christ, denying any same-sex couple who even thinks of seeking a celebration. No marriage equality activist is seeking to change this.

What they should really do, if they have any hope of stopping marriage equality, is spend these forty days thinking of new arguments that make their case on a constitutional level. But of course that will never happen because they simply do not have a case to make.
