We never did a thread about it so I'll share my favorite take-away from the Susan G. Komen fiasco here:
"In one day, they managed to alienate half their supporters. In the next day, they managed to alienate the other half. What was so wrong three days ago that they needed to change?"

I don't remember the source but it summed the whole thing up wonderfully.

Atlantic wrote:
Karen Handel, Susan G. Komen for the Cure's vice president for public policy, has resigned from the breast-cancer charity following a funding dispute involving Planned Parenthood, according to the Associated Press, which has obtained a letter that Handel sent out to the organization.

"I am deeply disappointed by the gross mischaracterizations of the strategy, its rationale, and my involvement in it," Handel wrote in the letter. "I openly acknowledge my role in the matter and continue to believe our decision was the best one for Komen's future and the women we serve."

Reporters have speculated about Handel's involvement since last week, when it was first announced that Komen would cut its funding from the controversial clinics, but Handel's admission is a new revelation in this ongoing story, and will likely re-ignite debates over whether or not this was a political decision. Last week, Susan G. Komen CEO Nancy Brinker denied that was the case, and Handel, who ran for governor of Georgia in 2010 on a pro-life platform, has kept quiet until now.

An AP source "with direct knowledge of decision-making at Komen's headquarters in Dallas" confirmed that new grant-making criteria, which would bar any organizations currently under investigation, were deliberately adopted to target Planned Parenthood. The network of clinics is the subject of a budgetary probe led by Florida Republican Cliff Stearns, chairman of the House Energy & Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations.

Hopefully people will continue finding other places for their charitable dollars. Couldn't have happened to a shittier organization.

Is this an honest statement? Because "I just don't understand how," and "I can't imagine how," are common idioms used to express disappointment, but are rarely meant to be taken literally.

For those pushing back the hardest, **** marriage isn't just something they think is wrong or flawed. It's part of their world view. For people who call **** marriage an attack on marriage--and who mean it and not merely use it as a rhetorical device--you are taking something away from them. You're telling them the world isn't the way they think it is. It's telling them it's ok for them to practice their beliefs over there in their little corner, but that it doesn't really apply to anyone else.

I can understand what they are feeling and why they are feeling it, but it's still wrong.

I'm so tempted to offer a wager on that. I think it'll be struck down on the narrow basis of equal protection based on the merits of the specific case offered by the fairly ridiculous Prop 8 camp, with no decision on the Constitutionality of same-sex marriage as such.

I'd take that bet, in a heartbeat. First of all, it's exceptionally unlikely that if certified, it wouldn't be overturned. Unfortunately, California has the ludicrous direct democracy initiative laws I'm sure you're familiar with, so for Scotus to affirm they have to find space for ignoring the stare decisis of that process, and repeal of the state's constitutional amendment based on a federal constitutional argument.

The one you propose would almost have to call DOMA in question and open the floodgates for cases in every state, and we'd have circuits ruling differently and sCOTUS being forced to look at it again, etc.

They're well aware of all of that. If they certify, it'll be to overturn. If they're sympathetic, they'll decline to review it. I'd say given the current makeup of they court, it's 65/35 they'll certify.

New law's rarely made in predictable fashion though, so who knows. Maybe Roberts is ready to make a statement we don't expect.
