The ACLU of WV Stalks Pro-Family Forum

with 4 comments

My name popped up on a blog in West Virginia that is so out of touch with moms and dads of the Mountain State that, it appears, repeatedly advocates against the coal industry and all things moral.  A regular contributor to that blog is the ACLU of WV and their “field organizer,” Seth DiStefano.

Late Monday, the ACLU of WV admitted to having closely followed the premier event for social conservatives nationwide: the Values Voter Summit.  Oddly, his only take away was that same-sex “marriage” fell to the third most important issue of the day behind abortion and religious liberty.  This, he declares, means that, “gay marriage is no longer a serious issue” for social conservatives.

Perhaps this new ranking is due to the millions of proposed spending in the proposed health care measure that would end human life that has values voters concerned.  Perhaps it is that there is a direct relationship between the expansion of government and the censoring one’s religious liberties – as with ENDA, hate crimes, etc.

Or, perhaps, there is a nationwide perception that same-sex “marriage” has been defeated.  Such is reasonable, considering that 30 states have constitutionally defined marriage, while only a handful of states – without direct citizen input – have invented a right to same-sex “marriage.”  Don’t be deceived, same-sex “marriage” is a closer reality in WV than many people think.

The ACLU wouldn’t hint at their concern if it were otherwise.  Remember, the ACLU, and Seth in particular, is still reeling from his anti-democratic performance a bit more than a month ago.  Always the competitive lot, the ACLU doesn’t like to lose and they know they do (and have and will) on this issue – unless they can keep it out of the hands of the uninformed, uneducated, coal-mongering, bigoted citizens of this state.

But, have no fear friends, notwithstanding liberal blogs or the ACLU, marriage in the mountain state has grown in support and continues to do so – except, it seems, in the statehouse.  A year ago, support for marriage as one man, one woman was at 73%.  Six months ago, it had grown to 86%.  Recent data we are privy to suggests now 92% of West Virginians are in favor of traditional marriage.

There is no legitimate reason not to let the people vote on the definition of marriage – except that the ACLU of WV, liberal bloggers, and the radical same-sex agenda fear the impact such an issue can have on their political agenda.
