The Human Rights Campaign takes on the National Organization for Marriage’s new ads. Maggie Gallagher responds:
HRC’s record of truth and honesty about their intentions is not that impressive. They once said marriage amendments weren’t necessary because there were no federal court cases. Now there is one. They called us liars when we said public schools will teach about gay marriage if it’s the law-but they do in Massachussetts. Serious religious liberty scholars from Eugene Volokh to Doug Laycock to Robin Wilson acknowledge the central driving idea behind gay marriage-there is no difference between same-sex and opposite-sex unions and supporters of marriage are engaging in discrimination if they think differently-will have consequences for the freedoms of tradtional faith communities. To pretend otherwise is to be profoundly unserious-if not deceptive-about what gay marriage means.
