Minnesota for [banning gay] Marriage is having a rally on March 7. Along with NOM’s Brian Brown will be Teresa Collett. So who is Teresa Collett? Well, her day job is as a professor at the University of St. Thomas School of Law in Minneapolis. Her hobbies include anti-choice zealotry and some choice homophobia. Collett is a graduate of University of Oklahoma (BA and JD). She is one of the leading legal experts on vaginal ultrasound probes. Seriously. She has been involved in the efforts by a number of red states to outlaw abortion.
Choosing from among Collett’s many anti-gay diatribes is a challenge. She has, for example. claimed that parents and pastors would be arrested for speaking out against homosexuality if same-sex marriage becomes legal. She has also claimed that churches and religiously affiliated organizations will lose their tax-exempt status.
At the risk of being overly repetitive:
- 16% of Americans live in an equal marriage state.
- 0% of Americans can claim that marriage equality has affected their “traditional marriage.”
By the way, Miss holier-than-thou has been cited, at least twice, for drunk driving.
