Dogs don't moo=no to domestic partnerships. WTF?

Update: I have just been informed that "No moo lies" is a response to this.

Please be kidding about this, Focus on the Family...

I found out about this at An Inch at a Time...

James Dobson's Colorado Springs-based ministry stands firmly against same-sex marriage, gay rights initiatives and, now, mooing puppies.
On Tuesday, Focus unveiled its new "straight" puppy Web site,, featuring a basset hound named Sherman, who barks as biology intended. During a news conference, a Focus employee dressed in a dog suit, who serves as a mascot at the group's visitors center, made a brief appearance.
"Dogs aren't born mooing, and people aren't born gay," a Focus news release stated.
Really, people--how does this *affect* you, such that you need to go to such, well, ludicrous lengths to oppose domenstic partnerships in Colorado. Frankly, I think it's just petty and mean.

But then again, I'm reminded of what Jesus said about homosexuality. Which Oh, that's right--he didn't say *anything* about it, did he? But I'm pretty sure I *do* remember him saying something about treating people the way you want to be treated.

In more positive, inclusive news, a bishop in Arkansas has indicated that he will allow blessings of same-sex unions in his diocese.
