Matt Barber clearly cares about the Democratic party. He only wants what is best for them, obviously, which is why he’s offering them some free advice. They made a terribly mistake by endorsing marriage equality, you see, because that is an “attack” on those who disagree.
Given the support for traditional marriage typically expressed by African-Americans and Hispanics in the party, Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel Action finds it difficult to understand why top Democrats have made this move. He considers it risky.
“The DNC is really kind of sticking its neck out here, both (A) in supporting the deconstruction of the institution of marriage [with] the radical redefinition of marriage, and (B) in attacking the vast majority of Americans who support natural marriage,” he warns…
“They are completely disconnected from reality in terms of imagining that somehow a man can marry a man and a woman can marry a woman,” Barber notes. “But they’re also disconnected from their own constituency. There is still a robust debate relative to the issue of marriage within the Democratic Party, and certainly within those who call themselves Democrats.”
The states that passed constitutional amendments protecting traditional marriage represent far more Electoral College votes than needed to gain election. So, Barber concludes that “the DNC needs to get its house in order, or they are going to start hemorrhaging those who register in that party.”
I’m sure the DNC appreciates Barber’s heartfelt concern for their well-being. And I’m sure we’ll be hearing very soon from Barber how concerned he is for the Republican party’s endorsement of tax cuts for the rich, which are far less popular than marriage equality. Right? Any time now, right? Yeah, I thought not.
