Citizen Outreach has launched a web site, Leave Marriage to the States, at lawfullywedded.com.
The site consists of conservative voices — many of them antigay — that oppose the Federal Marriage Amendment because, they say, the amendment undermines states’ rights.
Among the arguments made is a comparison between the FMA and Prohibition. Advocates for both constitutional amendments wielded the false claim that their amendment banned only an extreme — gay marriage, or hard liquor. It later turned out, of course, that both amendments quite clearly and intentionally banned all forms of alcohol, and every legal form of recognition of a gay relationship.
