There's a lively debate between me and the American Family Association's Micah Clark going on at Veritas Rex, the blogsite of the Indiana Family Institute. Micah started with the usual blather blaming the Democratic leadership in the Indiana House for the death of SJR7, the so-called "Indiana Marriage Protection Amendment" to the Hoosier constitution. I countered, charging that he had only to look to himself and his forces supporting the amendment, for blowing it.
That set him off big time, with the usual flailing diatribes against "goofy gay activist rhetoric". But I expected that. What I didn't expect, and am still reeling from, is his throwing his own cited legal sources from Catholic University of American under the bus. He's denied critical links between his side's choice to cut and past SJR7 from the proposed Federal Marriage Amendment, something that those sources as well as other used to support passage of SJR7. He's trying to distance himself from Senator Brant Hershman, chief legislative sponsor of the measure, who sent the Catholic University letter to scores of Indiana newspaper editorial boards. That's a pretty convoluted and desperate move on his part, but not at all untypical.
