Here are a few interesting tidbits from today’s Proposition 8 and Marriage news.

:::::Additional Lawsuit Filed Against Prop 8

A new lawsuit has been filed claiming that Prop 8 violates the Federal Constitution. Hang in there states-rights. This is not the federal scandal that the plaintiffs are making it out to be.  {Click here to read article}

:::::Alliance Defense Fund Attorneys to Defend Prop 8 and the DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act)

The Christian Post reports:

A federal court has granted attorneys with a Christian legal firm a motion to intervene in a lawsuit that challenges Proposition 8 and the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

The U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Southern Division, filed the order granting the motion on Wednesday. Alliance Defense Fund attorneys will intervene on behalf of ProtectMarriage.com, the main proponents of Proposition 8 – California’s constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman.

“The people of California want marriage to remain as the union between one man and one woman; they made their voice clear last November at the polls,” said ADF Senior Legal Counsel Brian Raum in a statement released Friday. “Yet this lawsuit begs the court to nullify the voices of more than 7 million California voters, as well as put an end to the federal law on marriage.”

:::::Media Blunders in Covering California’s Prop 8

Six months ago, California voters passed Proposition 8, denying legal recognition to same gender marriages.  Petitions are now being circulated to put the issue back to the voters in June 2010.

Before venturing into this thorny thicket again, the media should realize what a poor job it did in covering the fundraising for Prop 8.

The reporting blunders include gross inaccuracies and one where the media did not recognize a good story right before their eyes.

All the blunders could have been avoided had news organizations more fully understood the campaign finance reporting laws of California and/or been more diligent in examining the online campaign finance records filed with the California Secretary of State.

:::::Character Assassins Gunning for Miss California, Supporters Say

“They’re really going after her,” Focus on the Family President Jim Daley said of Prejean, whose critics have gone so far as to compare her to a Nazi war criminal.

“She’s being attacked for her opinion; she’s getting creamed for just giving her perspective. It’s just another example of the intolerant left….

  1. Gay activists have been trying to find a way to attack the DOMA for a decade. They couldn’t attack it while Clinton was in office. They didn’t have any power with George Bush in office. Now that Obama and Pelosi run the show, they feel their chances are good. That’s the real reason we’ve seen a sudden upsurge in the same sex marriage push – the federal government seemingly is on the side of the gays.

  2. Good point Euripides. I hadn’t thought of it that way. It’s true, it’s like they all of a sudden are making everything into this huge federal case. We can’t count on Obama for anything.

  3. I’m looking forward to the people’s veto in Maine and for Iowa’s citizenry to start off the voter backlash. Things have gone too far too fast, and I don’t get the sense that America is quite ready for all that. I hope it bites them hard.

  4. Journalista, where is the Nazi war criminal comparison?

    Obama and the Democratic Party have sent all the wrong signals. I do hope that any attack on DOMA in the courts will be defended by attorneys who are from pro-marriage organizations. I can foresee another “Jerry Brown” kind of effort from the federal government this time.

  5. Here is the Nazi reference;

    During an appearance last week with MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann, Musto [Village Voice columnist Michael Musto] jested that Miss California officials also paid for Prejean to “cut off her penis” and likened her to Klaus Barbie, a Nazi war criminal believed to be responsible for up to 4,000 deaths.

    “She’s dumb and twisted,” Musto said on April 30. “She’s sort of like a human Klaus Barbie doll … This is the kind of girl who sits on the TV and watches the sofa. You know, she thinks innuendo is an Italian suppository.”

    * * *

    Note, it was not said in jest. He made that clear when he clarified:

    “Prejean rabidly advocates depriving gay people of equal rights, so I don’t feel she deserves the kid-glove treatment from me,” Musto wrote FOXNews.com. “She’s also a semi-nude-posing moralist and someone who apparently doesn’t honor her contract. But I also have criticized the pageant itself for being hypocrites — they’re the ones who paid for her implants and make her walk in a bathing suit for mass judging, yet they have a problem with semi-nude shots.”

    Amanda Susskind, regional director for the Anti-Defamation League’s Pacific Southwest chapter, said Musto’s Nazi imagery was inappropriate.

    “The Anti-Defamation League has consistently urged those in the public sphere to refrain from using such Nazi imagery, out of respect for those who perished in the Holocaust, and out of respect for those who survived,” Susskind wrote in a statement to FOXNews.com. “The use of Nazi imagery has the effect of trivializing the Holocaust.”

    Journalista, if those quotes from Musto are not appropriate for your blogsite, please do not hesitate in deleting my comment.

    I just wanted to highlight the point that SSMers often trivialize and mock when they actually they, in earnest, are attempting to be serious and to state their opinions as fact-based. The irony is tragic since they do so in the name of identity politics of the gaycentric variety.

    Disagreement with Musto on marriage is equated with the crimes of mass murderer, Klaus Barbie, who committed his atrocities in the name of identity politics exorted as the Final Solution.
