An Odd Definition of Losing


The Southern Poverty Law Center recently added the Family Research Council, along with a number of other fundamentalist Christian groups, to its list of hate groups because of their anti-gay rhetoric. The Family Research Council didn’t much like this, and responded in part by saying this:

” The Left is losing the debate over ideas and the direction of public policy so all that is left for them is character assassination.”

They then go on to mention the more than thirty states which have constitutional amendments banning same-sex marriage and the recent Supreme Court elections in Iowa in which 3 justices who earlier found in favor of same-sex marriage were removed.
