Robert Knight gets it exactly right:
By accusing traditional marriage backers of being motivated only by animus against homosexuals, the U.S. Supreme Court has become the most prominent hate group in the country.
It’s hateful to defame people by falsely accusing them of bigotry. If you want to see how it’s done, check out the Southern Poverty Law Center, which has been defaming Christians for years.
Or read Justice Anthony Kennedy’s majority opinion in U.S. v. Windsor. It leaves little room for concluding otherwise that the 342 House members and 85 Senators who voted for the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in 1996, plus President Bill Clinton, apparently were full of hate. So, too, is anyone who believes marriage is the union of one man and one woman, including a majority of North Carolina voters last year.
Tens of millions of Americans have voted to strengthen state marriage laws, including 31 constitutional amendments. The hate net is sagging at the seams with all those people in it.
If you think about it, the net includes all major religions and billions of people around the world who regard marriage as the union of male and female. It would include billions more if you counted all the generations before us. Who knew that marriage rested on so much hate?
