Chuck Limandri vs. the SPLC

Chuck Limandri, my old friend from the Carrie Prejean, Prop 8 fights, is a heckuva a lawyer and one brave man. He’s taking on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s massive legal machine to defend the right of Jewish gay people to seek help:

“If SPLC wins this landmark legal case, it will communicate to gays and lesbians seeking to conform their sexual lives to Torah values that they are second-class citizens, without the same right to seek help that other gay people enjoy,” said Limandri.

SPLC is using consumer-fraud laws to try to bankrupt these small nonprofits and if it wins this case has announced plans to take it nationwide against 70 groups offering some form of sexual-orientation-change efforts. They must not want publicity because this landmark case is flying under all media radar screens.

I am chairman of Chuck’s board, by the way. Find out more at ConscienceDefense.org

UPDATE: For the record, it’s not conversion therapy I’m backing.

How Immigration Changes Britain

Almost nothing is discussed as badly in America or Europe as the subject of immigration.
