Confederacy of Dunces

I don't know about you, but I was shocked, absolutely shocked, that the piece on anti-gay politics in last weekend's NYT included this aside about some southern Marylanders all fumed up about gays getting married:

The Grays have converted their basement -- paneled, wall-to-wall-carpeted, decorated with Jim Gray's Confederate memorabilia (a portrait of Jeb Stuart, framed currency) and the twinkling lights -- into an office. They each have a desk here, stacked with brochures and books and buttons. Evalena is Maryland's grass-roots director for Concerned Women for America; she and her husband devote all of their spare hours to convincing fellow citizens of the danger that the institution of marriage is facing.

The religious fundamentalists sure have some spokesmen, don't they?
