You'd think they'd know by now...

OK, I'm sure you've heard of the douchebag that decided to try to write legislation to ban gay people from playing for the NFL, right?  Well, there's two things to this story.  The first is obvious: such discrimination is, I'm reasonably certain, a direct violation of the Equal Protection clause....again.

The second one?  Well, I can't really do it justice, so I'll let David Pakman do it for me.  He's good at keeping his amusement in check:

Man, evangelicals have REALLY bad lawyers.

It's like they don't understand how to do their job.  Even I could kick their ass, and I only have three years of paralegal training.  Seriously, this one is just bad.

What am I talking about, you ask?  Well, the Mormons and a few various Evangelical organizations (including the Lutheran-Missouri Synod folks)have filed an amicus curae brief in the Utah marriage equality case, and their arguments are bad.  I mean "milk that you left sitting on the counter for a month in a Mexico summer" bad. I'll forgo giving them the Courier treatment (they deserve comic sans, really, but that option isn't available in the dropdown, and I'm too lazy to do so many HTML tags) and stick their crappy arguments in Trebuchet font, with my responses in the default font.  The headings are from their brief, and will denote different sections.  Stay with me, this'll get long.
