    is to look at some of the evangelical responses to the success of the three marriage equality initiatives. They minimize them (blue states, none got more than 54% of the vote) but then they start talking about the danger America faces if it lets people who are committed to sin have their own way.  Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality, went so far as to say it's really not about marriage, it's about homosexuality, and none of them were willing to admit that until now.

    •  great, so the way we fight back is... (3+ / 0-)

      .... "It's not about someone imposing religion on others, it's about bad religion to begin with."  Religion based upon hatred and domination vs. religion based upon love and stewardship.  Religion that has become de-facto Mammon worship vs. religion that remains true to its roots.  Etc.

      We got the future back.
