"Pro-family" group opposes SCOTUS nominee

From the AP:

A conservative group in Virginia said Tuesday it would oppose Supreme Court nominee John Roberts' confirmation because of his work helping overturn a Colorado referendum on gays.

The stance by Public Advocate of the United States, which describes itself as a pro-family organization, puts it in opposition to conservative groups that have endorsed Roberts. A number of liberal groups oppose President Bush's nominee.

"The move comes as a result of Roberts' support for the radical homosexual lobby in the 1996 Supreme Court case Romer v. Evans, which overturned a pro-family law passed by the citizens of Colorado in an appalling act of judicial activism," the group said in a news release. It planned a news conference for Wednesday in front of the Supreme Court. (emphasis mine)

How dare the group, Public Advocate of the United States claim to be pro-family? They are pro-bigotry and hatred.

Do you know what really gets under my skin? THIS is the reason they are opposing John Roberts for the Supreme Court. Never mind that he could give a shit about judicial process, the environment, or rights to privacy.

These people make me sick. Congratulations to the "mainstream" Christian denomination for uniting with these bigoted freaks. Shame on all of them, including my own Church. Where's your priorities?
