    Virtue Online: Same-sex marriage is on the ballot this fall in Maryland, Minnesota, Washington State and Maine. Polls show support for it now in all four states, though it is narrowing in Maine. “When people hear their legislature is considering a law like this and they think, ‘What’s the harm?’ They need to realize that there is a direct threat to religious liberty – to business owners, employees, religious entities,” said Jim Campbell of the Alliance Defense Fund. Maggie Gallagher, President of National Organization for Marriage, is blunt: “Christian adoption agencies will be driven out of the public square, which has already happened in Massachusetts, Washington D.C. and Illinois. There will be fewer parents for troubled children.

In Baldwin Hills, Obama’s stance on gay marriage gets mixed reviews | LA Times

    LA Times: An anti-gay marriage group, Alliance Defense Fund, released a statement saying Obama “doesn’t understand the public purpose of marriage.” “Marriage — the lifelong, faithful union of one man and one woman — is the building block of a thriving society,” said litigation staff counsel Jim Campbell. “It’s not something that politicians should attempt to redefine for political purposes. The president has spoken eloquently about how fatherless homes often hurt children and society. Today’s statement is a tragic contradiction that promotes the creation of even more fatherless and motherless homes.”

“Rel. liberty takes hit in new gay ‘marriage’ suits” | Baptist Press

    Michael Foust at Baptist Press: Jim Campbell, an attorney with the Alliance Defense Fund — which is representing the Methodist group — said the cases prove that there is harm to religious liberty when states legalize gay “marriage” or civil unions or pass broad legislation incorporating sexual orientation into non-discrimination laws. “When people hear that their legislature is considering a law like this and they think, ‘What’s the harm?’ they need to realize that there is this direct threat to religious liberty — to business owners, employees, religious entities and people who attend all those religious entities,” Campbell told Baptist Press. “These four cases are a good demonstration of that. People who are concerned about religious liberty should be concerned about these legal developments.”
