Social conservative Phyllis Schlafly
claims Americans are voting with their feet against gay marriage.
The 89-year-old Schlafly, founder of
the socially conservative Eagle Forum, claimed in her latest radio
commentary that “many Americans” are leaving the 17 marriage
“The Court held that because the U.S.
Supreme Court had recently ordered that federal benefits be granted
to same-sex couples who are married under state law, the civil union
law in New Jersey was inadequate to ensure that homosexual couples in
New Jersey are able to receive the same benefits as married couples,”
Schlafly told her listeners.
“There was no dissent from the New
Jersey court's ruling, not even by Christie's own judicial
appointments. But many Americans are dissenting with their feet, by
moving away from same-sex marriage states and into the many states
that continue to recognize the value of marriage as being between
only one man and one woman.”

Wing Watch, Miranda Blue notes: “The liberal media must be
covering up this mass exodus from marriage equality states, because
we haven't heard a single story of someone doing this.”
