Idiot of the Week

There’s no contest here. The prize goes to Stephen Dunne, a lawyer-wannabe in Massachusetts who claims that he failed his bar exam because he refused to answer a question that he alleges compels the person being tested to “affirmatively accept, support and promote homosexual marriage and homosexual parenting.” Dunne claims the question violates his freedom of religion. “Enthusiastically citing scripture,” Raw Story reports, “Dunne expresses his belief that the court ruling that affirmed same-sex marriage rights in Massachusetts, Goodridge v. Department of Public Health, is ‘profoundly undemocratic and un-American,’ and that the case is about ‘the protection and defense of Christianity.’” Now, Dunne wants people to send him money so that he can begin sue to outlaw same-sex marriage in the only U.S. state so far that allows it.”

Yeah, that sounds like a good expenditure. Give dough to a lawyer (or aspiring barrister, in any case). Isn’t that what conservatives--the same ones who oppose same-sex marriage--usually rail against doing?
