Oh please. Look at this video from the Alliance Defense Fund pimping its purported successes in the end-of-year plea to fill the coffers video to justify its existence.
“The advocates of homosexual behavior have almost unlimited resources available to them. They will do whatever it takes to try to win and we’ve (ADF) got to be there.”
Unfortunately, as Jeremy at Good As You notes, the ADF “victories” aren’t particularly numerous enough to deserve this dramatic, heavy breathing self-pat on the back.
In California, the ADF’s Glen Lavy was in the Supreme Court making his case for keeping gays barred. The Supreme Court, however, rejected his side’s arguments. Also, among other marriage cases: The legal beagles also tried, unsuccessfully, to stop New York state from recognizing out-of-state unions. In fact, as far as their gay nup-barring court activities are concerned, it seems to have been a pretty crummy year for this “pro-marriage” outfit. It would seem to us that the anti-gay movement succeeded DESPITE the ADF’s inability to effectively win in court, not because of it.
