Yesterday the UK’s House of Commons overwhelmingly approved the equal marriage bill by a vote of 400 to 175. A full 70% of MPs, more than a supermajority, voted for civil equality.

How does the UK’s anti-gay Coalition for Marriage respond to their sound defeat? “I am pleased that we achieved a very strong ‘no’ vote”.

Shades of National Organization for Marriage claiming yesterday that they “defeated a lame-duck session bill in Illinois that would have legalized same-sex marriage” just as an Illinois state Senate committee passed the bill and sent it to the Senate floor.

Spin, it’s what’s for breakfast when you pretend you’re not eating crow.
