The Reverend Mark Creech, executive director of the Christian Action League, a professional agitator imported from Raleigh for the event, readily admitted that Amendment 1 is discriminatory, thereby neatly pulling the rug out from under deer-in-the-headlights legislators Dan Soucek and Jonathan Jordan, who were trying their best to pirouette around the unconstitutionally unequal treatment embodied in their poorly written Queer Fear Law. Preacher Creech was apparently sufficiently turned on by what preachers of his ilk are always turned on by: other people's sins.
All those empty seats in the high school might have induced a little more humility.
