These people just never stop, do they?
After the Supreme Court issued a collective “whatever” to Bishop Harry Jackson and his whiny appeal to force a vote on marriage rights in the District of Columbia, which runs up against the District’s nondiscrimination policies, the National Organization for Marriage has decided that maybe the new House of Representatives [now with lots more bigots!] can help them hurt gay families in the nation’s capital:
Jackson and his supporters took their case to the Supreme Court after the D.C. Court of Appeals said that the board was within the law in making such a decision. Jackson, a minister at the Hope Christian Church in Belstville, said the court’s split decision (5 to 4) gave him reason to hope.
The National Organization for Marriage (NOM), the nation’s most vociferous opponent of gay marriage, says it will work with Congress to strike down the law.
“With a pro-marriage majority in the new Congress we will explore a number of avenues to force the District to fulfill their constitutional responsibility to voters,” NOM President Brian Brown said in a statement. “As the four Court of Appeal justices who dissented in this case made clear, the District of Columbia owes it to the voters to allow them to decide the critical issue of marriage which has existed since before there was a District of Columbia.”
When you’re filled with such bigotry and prejudice that you spend your entire life trying to hurt gay families everywhere in a malignant game of whack-a-mole, you have problems. Therapy recommended.
