White Supremacist Group Files Brief In Support Of Michigan's Gay Marriage Ban

A white supremacist group has filed a friend of the court brief in support of Michigan's ban on gay marriage.
The day after U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman ruled the state's ban invalid, roughly 300 gay and lesbian couples tied the knot in 4 Michigan counties before the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati suspended Friedman's decision as the state pursues an appeal.
The Traditionalist Youth Network filed its brief last week, according to Mlive.
“The totality of the history of the Western and American traditions demonstrates quite clearly that same-sex conduct can be penalized,” wrote lawyer Kyle Bristow.
“If a state cannot be permitted to define marriage as simply as constituting one man and one woman, then our culture will be taken down a very slippery slope that will see pedophiles, polygamists, zoophiles, those in incestuous relationships, and every other sexual deviant with proclivities now known or to be invented to challenge laws that, likewise, prevent them from marrying whom – what – they wish.”
Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette, a Republican who is defending the ban in court, denounced the brief.
“The Sixth Circuit should use this brief to line a birdcage, because that's all it's good for,” Schuette told MLive.

One could argue Mr. Schuette, your antics in court, bringing in an anti-gay, discredited Mark Regenerus to heap his bile in support of your agenda to marginalize homosexuals as second class citizens, is just as worthy if lining a birdcage.
I would be more interested in knowing how you feel justified condemning them, when you basically accused homosexuals of the same thing in court?
Bigotry is ugly Mr. Schuette, and you are far from blameless.
