Indiana's solicitor general has a very rough day in court defending laws against gay marriage

Thomas M. Fisher, Soliciter General of Indiana
Professional anti-gay activists would have you believe that unelected, "handpicked, liberal activist judges" are trampling on the will of the people in respect of marriage equality for LGBTs.
     The reality, of course, is that judges are increasingly weary of the specious arguments of homophobes and of state solicitor generals tasked with defending homophobic legislation.
     Nowhere was that fed-up attitude more in evidence today than at the Seventh U.S. Circuit Court of appeals where Judges Posner, Williams and Hamilton gave the Solicitor General of Indiana a very rough time. How rough? Listen here.
