A Concerned Women for America fundraising email today includes this lament:
“Recently 133 same-sex couples married in Washington State at Seattle’s City Hall. That number is growing, and will continue to grow, as states around our great nation turn away from Biblical morality and marriage as God created and intended: one man, one woman, no exceptions.”
The religious right’s long crusade to demonize and marginalize people because of whom they love is finally showing signs of collapse. And clergy and other people of faith are among those rejecting the narrow, intolerant view of equality and God’s love promoted by groups like CWA. Of course, gay and lesbian Texans still face big obstacles to equality at the Capitol. But change is happening at the local level here as well.
All of which makes us wonder: how will religious-right groups raise money when they have no one left to demonize?
