Yikes! Amendment One provokes a fight on Right-Wing Avenue

It’s hard to say what’s more remarkable about the absurd little essay [1] released yesterday by the head of the Pope-Civitas Institute about the marriage discrimination amendment: its utter intellectual vacuousness or the fact that it all but calls out the director of the John Locke Foundation and Congresswoman Renee Ellmers by name.

Check this out:

“A number of public figures are revealing their feelings on the Marriage Amendment — and possibly giving an indication of how they feel on other social issues. By doing so they show they are out of the mainstream of what not only the majority of their party supports, but also what a majority of the voting population supports.”

And this…

“By making cause with social liberals, economic conservatives are also weakening the case for social conservatives to partner with them on economic issues. It is not a one-way street.”

And this…

“A final word for those who think by opposing the amendment they are helping to end this “divisive” social battle: Do not deceive yourself. If this amendment is defeated it is not the end, it will be merely the opening round in a much more divisive and bitter struggle that will envelop North Carolina.”

And then to make matters even more interesting, Hood’s own staffer tweeted this morning [2]to endorse this baloney. Could be good fun to watch this play out.
