The Thomas More Law Center, that group of buffoons who lost the Dover trial in spectacular fashion, sent out an email revealing their “game changing” legal strategy to “combat the slew of recent federal court rulings which have overturned state laws defining marriage as the union of a man and a woman.” What are they gonna do? File some amicus briefs.
Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center disclosed that a legal team has been formed to file friend-of-the-court briefs (amicus briefs) on behalf of a Coalition of African-American pastors and Christian leaders. The legal team consists of the Law Center’s senior trial counsel, Erin Mersino, and co-counsels William R. Wagner and John S. Kane of Lansing, MI.
Thompson explained, “In its briefs, the Law Center reflects the voice of a majority of African-Americans that discrimination because of one’s sexual preference is not the same thing as racial discrimination and that tradition and morality should not be discarded as a basis of the law; as the pro-homosexual judges have done in their opinions.”Several pastors representing the African-American community spoke at the press conference, including Bishop Samuel Smith, and Pastors Danny Holliday and Emery Moss. Evangelist Janet Boynes, a former lesbian and a member of the group, also spoke. In eloquent and at times fiery words, they all defended the definition of marriage as the union of a man and a woman.
Wow. What a “game changer.” They’re going to file legal briefs in court cases that already have dozens and dozens of briefs filed by numerous other groups making the exact same arguments the TMLC is going to make. I’m quaking in my boots.
