Blogging the Amendment

Offering a Forum to Discuss the Pros and Cons of the Marshall/Newman Amendment

Comparing the “Inside”/”Outside” Face of Amendment Proponents

Equality Loudoun discusses the different faces presented (to the public and to their closest allies) by Marshall/Newman proponent, Alliance Defense Fund, an Arizona-based operation that used to be listed as a member of the alliance in support of the amendment in Virginia (that is, before they took the paltry list of alliance supporters off their website).

If I had only saved screen shots of the first web pages posted by proponents of the amendment to compare to today’s sanitized output, some of the same differences in rhetoric would be exposed.

Update:

Equality Loudoun has another good post today about how the proponents of the amendment who fiercely disclaim all of our aguments against the proposed amendment will surely flip flop and embrace them if the amendment passes.

  1. It’s just like any other issue you have the 10% lunatics that are obsessed on either side and they are trying the best ways to get a majority of the 80% of us that are normal

  2. I could be wrong, but I don’t think that using many, many, many exclamation points and claiming to be privy to “God’s design” is one of those best ways.
