Rule of Law means nothing to the sort of right-wing religious crowd John C. Calhoun would want to hang with.

In a letter released Thursday, more than 200 conservative activists — ranging from the Catholic League’s Bill Donohue to Oklahoma State Rep. Sally Kern (R) — vowed to ignore any ruling in favor of same-sex couples. The group of endorsers, signing under the moniker of Freedom Federation, is composed of anti-LGBT Christian conservatives, many of whom have fallen from prominence in recent years.

Today may be the day the Supreme’s finally issue their ruling on the subject. But no matter the result, one thing is certain. Folks like Bill Donohue will keep on sliding into irrelevance no matter the frequency of their cable news gigs.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
