I know, it won't change the world, but it felt good to give the hypocritical (or is that hyper-critical) bigots a taste of their own medicine.

[/quote]*** DETAILS OF THE CHRISTIAN COALITION'S THREAT TO MARRIAGE
According to a top newspaper serving the US Congress, "The Hill", the former Senate lobbyist and outreach coordinator of the Christian Coalition, and his wife, the organization's vice president for communications (who is also the daughter of the organization's president Roberta Combs), are in the middle of a "nasty divorce."
Today's "The Hill" reports that:
"The [divorce] proceeding involves Tracy Ammons, CCA's former Senate lobbyist and outreach coordinator, and Michele Combs, CCA vice president for communications and the daughter of CCA President Roberta Combs. Combs and Ammons were wed in December 1999, but their marriage soon disintegrated and was replaced with lawsuits, countersuits and even jail time over relatively small amounts of money that hinge on custody of their 3 1/2-year-old child."
The lawyer for the husband explained to "The Hill" quite clearly what is at stake in this nasty divorce:
"While the nation debates traditional marriage versus gay marriage, the president of the Christian Coalition, Roberta Combs, is encouraging and bankrolling a nasty, hardball divorce by her own daughter," said Jonathon Moseley, an attorney for Ammons. "I think that's probably the thing I find most offensive about the whole thing," he added. "It is rather traditional in divorces to go for total destruction; the divorce attorney's instinct is to go for the jugular, and that's unfortunate. But it's particularly offensive in this case, when it goes against everything the Christian Coalition is promoting."
*** PLEASE ACT NOW TO DEFEND THE SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE
Please contact the Christian Coalition immediately and tell them to stop making a mockery of marriage. As the Christian Coalition notes on their own Web site, defending marriage is one of the most important issues "in our lifetimes and for our families, children and grandchildren."
Please don't let our families, children and grandchildren down. Contact the Christian Coalition immediately and tell them to stop mocking this important institution.
