Groups behind the marriage discrimination amendment

Little in this story from the Washington Independent – (“Three anti-gay groups were pivotal in N.C. marriage amendment push“) will come as much of a surprise to North Carolinans paying attention, but it does provide a handy sketch of the groups behind the marriage amendment (and just how remarkably crazy a lot of the positions they take and things they say really are).

It’s also always amusing to be reminded once again of the Family Policy Council’s strange obsession with sodomy.

    CAL, isn’t that Coy Privette’s organization? Or was, till he got busted with prostitutes back in ’07. The SPLC lists them as a hate group, and Morris Dees knows a thing or two about hate groups. The thing is, these self loathing, nihilistic, and self righteous organizations are usually rotten at the core. I’ve read the transcipts of Janet Parshall’s interview with Ron Baity of Return America, these are sick and twisted individuals with a skewed sense of reality. The NC Family Policy Council claims to be non-partisan and non-profit, and it is neither. The right wing politicians who pander to these idiots for votes are nothing but whores. The best thing about them is, historically, groups like these usually implode from a scandal, you just know there’s a Ted Haggard in there waiting to come out, pardon the pun, but it’s only a matter of time.

    Christians…involved….in…politics….!? What is this country coming to?! Yeah, and the SPLC is a perfectly impartial arbiter of everything ‘hate,’ right? How about all the black people who vote for ordinary marriage? Are they all haters? Do they know less about hate than Morris Dees? What do liberals do when two ostensibly ‘oppressed’ groups disagree about something?
