WND: 'Black Robes Trash Traditional Marriage'
Topic: WorldNetDaily

The headline of WorldNetDaily's May 15 article by Bob Unruh on the California Supreme Court's overturning of a same-sex marriage ban is predictably bitter and biased: "Black robes trash traditional marriage." The first paragraph of Unruh's article follows in that same vein:

The California Supreme Court today trashed society's traditional institution of marriage, opening it up for same-sex duos because retaining the historic definition "cannot properly be viewed as a compelling state interest."

Of course, nowhere does Unruh offer any factual evidence that same-sex marriages "trash traditional marriage."

Unruh quotes only right-wing groups criticizing the ruling; it's as if people who support the ruling don't exist to him. Unsurprisingly, Unruh gives prime space to anti-gay activist Matt Barber, who referenced "radical San Francisco-style social experimentation" and declared, "So-called 'same-sex marriage' is a ridiculous and oxymoronic notion that has been forced into popular lexicon by homosexual activists and their extremist left-wing allies."

Remember, this is just part of WND's anti-gay agenda.

UPDATE: A second Unruh article horribly overhypes the dissenting opinion: "California's 'judicial fiat' condemned – by judge."
