Not Quite Justice Delayed, But Almost

Something happened today with the Prop 8 case, but it’s not as exciting as progress hopefully would be.

Drowning in Politics: Where’s the LGBT Education?

I’m frustrated. I probably shouldn’t even be writing, but I am. It’s Monday. What’s the big news in the LGBT world? Kind of two biggies I guess… 1) Those crazy Prop 8 proponents filed their 134-page argument to the Circuit of Appeals. I could wade through the whole thing for you if you’d like, but […]

Protect Marriage: Charles J. Cooper Didn’t Watch Trial/Read Decision

Another response to Protect Marriage’s propaganda. It’s amazing to hear the lead lawyer for the defense talk as if he hasn’t even read the decision he’s talking about. I can’t rule out that he hasn’t.

Protect Marriage: Sticking To Our Untrue Talking Points

Of course, in the wake of today’s decision, Protect Marriage is vying for an indefinite stay of today’s ruling and an appeal, as we knew they would. What’s sad is that Andy Pugno talks as if he hasn’t even read the decision (maybe he hasn’t). Protect Marriage’s press release reiterates the same old demonizing stereotypes […]

Supreme Court Saves Washington State From Becoming Police State

Now here’s some good news. I’m not going to linger on the issue, because I’ve certainly written enough about it before (on August 13, August 28, September 11, and October 15). Think back to last year’s election in Washington State when Referendum 71 was on the ballot, threatening the marriage-like domestic partnership law. Ultimately Ref. […]

Protect Marriage: No Evidence, Only Spin

In the wake of yesterday’s closing arguments in the Prop 8 trial, it seems Protect Marriage might be concerned with damage control. Rather than a rambling long blog post like we’ve seen throughout the trial, Andy Pugno just gives us a brief little press release. It’s not very strong, despite its attempt to suggest otherwise. […]

Checking In With The “Protectors of Marriage” (aka The “Purveyors of Hateful BS”)

It’s been a while since we’ve checked in with our old pals Andy Pugno and Ron Prentice from Protect Marriage. (I blame Netvibes for the problems they’ve been having with their feeds.) Let’s see what kind of self-victimizing drivel they’ve been churning out in regards to the Proposition 8 case. (If you just want to […]
