Drama Queen Maggie Gallagher Isn’t Taking the Prop 8 News Well
In a post titled – and I quote - Ninth Circuit to 7 Million Californian Voters: Drop Dead, Maggie Gallagher is driving her wambulance all over her corner of the interwebs with the sirens on full blast.
Thankfully, even her supporters aren’t having it. The comments read less like the usual NOM circle jerk, and more like the embarrassed result of a religious cult realizing their sacred cow isn’t so holy after all.
Some of our favorite dissenting voices:
I don’t think that they actually said “Drop dead” or anything like that, so it’s an inaccurate headline. A more accurate headline would be “Ninth Circuit to 7 million California Voters: You Cannot Discriminate”.
Could you please show in the ruling where the Justices specifically said “drop dead”? If not, then it is not an accurate headline.
Twenty years from now, when gay marriage is thought of as a basic civil right, will National Review publish articles about how it was really conservatives who stood up for gay rights?
It appears that you do not even live in California; are there no important issues to write about in your state?
Are you aware that in 1964 by a 2 to 1 vote, the California Voters also passed Proposition 15; a measure outlawing Pay-Television? I guess the Justices of the Supreme Court of California told those voters to DROP DEAD when they later invalidated Proposition 15.
*** HEADLINE CORRECTION ***Ninth Circuit to entire nation: You can’t just tell a minority population that they are unallowed to have a certain right simply because the heavily faith-based whims of a bare majority feel like taking away said right!
And just like that, millions of marriages were brought closer to ruin. Every day we don’t know with certainty that same-sex couples won’t be able to get married sees every heterosexual marriage crumble just a little more.Oh the humanity!!
So good! But nothing holds a candle to Gallagher’s parting words, “Now, it’s up to the Supremes.”
Let’s hope so.
