    Thanks for clarifying--and completely undermining your only potentially effective argument.

    •  Pro-life, pro-gay not disjoint. (0+ / 0-)

      What's really strange is that Cleveland Right-to-Life is repeating the same move that managed to convert Operation Rescue from an effective civil-disobedience organization to a fringe group kept alive by wingnut welfare.  The "Catholic Alliance" got a little nervous about the "Left Behind" Pope-as-Antichrist, but Randall Terry's homophobia drove enough pro-lifers away from Operation Rescue to make clinic blocking a lot harder.  

      After all, why shouldn't pro-lifers be dismayed by an organization that diverts resources from the "good fight" to a totally different fight -- there are babies to save and Right-to-Life wants to go after the gays?
