'Sodomites,' child abuse, and sore losers in West Virginia's marriage equality fight

In terms of the marriage equality fight, one thing which helps the lgbt community are those who are fighting against us.

I've divided them into two camps. First, there are the policy wonks like those from the Heritage Foundation and the National Review. They write pieces about the sustainability of marriage and how allowing gays to marry is akin to slavery. They twist incredibly good tangents which showcases their intellectual prowess.

But nothing they say has anything to do with the real world. They offer only hypothetical tangents which loses your interest in the third paragraph unless you already agree with their opinion. In other words, their pieces would never stand up in court against examples of actual same-sex couples and families who are hurt by anti-marriage equality laws.

Then there are folks like West Virginia Family Foundation, who sent out the following message yesterday when marriage equality came to that state. I think it's self-explanatory why we are winning against THAT particular crowd:

There is light at the end of this tunnel. The closer we get to the end, the more outlandish their arguments become. The more outlandish their arguments, the more people see them for what they are and walk away. Time for them to take their toys and go home.
