Writing discrimination into the law

Salon has a nice collection of right-wing reaction to the Massachusetts Supreme Court decision that a law banning gay marriage violates the state’s Constitution. (If you don’t have a subscription to Salon, you can watch an ad for a “Free Day Pass.”)

For conservatives, this isn’t really about gay marriage. It’s about attacking a group for political gain. Republicans think they can get away with constant stream of divisive and hateful rhetoric as long as their target is gays and lesbians.

They can’t. America is waking up to their strategy. Whether or not individuals support the idea of gay marriage, they overwhelmingly oppose GOP attempts to write discrimination into the law.
