Lie 1 – NOM et al: Prop 8 is still the law in CA, and all govt officials, including the supreme court are in violation of ‘murkin law – and therefor the state does not allow for marriage equality
Reality: Prop 8 was found unconstitutional by the federal courts (original trial as well as the appeal). The supreme court did not grant standing to the professional antigay folk, and the lower court rulings are in effect.
Lie 2 – The PA state attorney general is in breach of contract and illegally declining to defend the state’s DOMA – the supporting argument for the above lie about Prop 8, insisting that the state attorney general broke the law by agreeing with the fed courts ruling and declining to waste money defending what they see as unconstitutional
Reality: nowhere in the state code or constitution could i find language that said the AG MUST intervene when the constitutionality of a statute is challenged – it does say the AG MAY intervene, but is not required.
Lie 3: Eugene Delusional Delgadio sent out yet another breathless but false email warning people that if they don’t send him money, that ” Instead of allowing an employer the freedom to judge applicants on their expertise, appearance and actions, the federal government wants you to play by new rules.”
Reality: The employment nondescrimination act does nothing to limit employers from firing employees for cause, or force employers to hire lgbt workers to meet some quota or give preference to anyone. Rather than eliminating that ability, it adds lgbt workers to the list of folks – including mr. delgadio for his chosen religious philosophy- who cannot be fired for reasons not related to their work performance (i.e. being a satanic pawn in the “homosexual lifestyle”)
Instead of allowing an employer the freedom to judge applicants on their expertise, appearance and actions, the federal government wants you to play by new rules.
