This is How Massresistance Lies

They just posted this new rant about the law student who flunked the Massachusetts Bar Exam:

Boston man failed Mass. Bar Exam because he refused to answer question on 'gay marriage' - files federal lawsuit.

We keep being told that 'gay marriage' won't affect us. We're now seeing that one of its effects is to legally push the normalization of homosexuality into everyone's lives -- in one way or another -- and punish those who don't go along with it.

A man is being forced to sue the Massachusetts Board of Bar Examiners and the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court over being answer questions on homosexual "marriage" legal situations in order to pass the bar exam and practice law in Masachusetts.

OK, Brian, if the gay marriage question was the ONLY QUESTION he didn't answer and get wrong you'd be right, but what about all the other questions this flunky got wrong? Maybe he didn't answer the marriage question because he didn't know the answer.

We're back to the blame game, as Brian Camenker said on Mass Hysteria, if he had enough time he could link gay marriage to anything including bad air quality!

Is there something like 200 questions on the Bar Exam? I'm guessing that out of the 200 questions, one dealt with a gay issue (since this flunky hasn't contested any other questions). It appears he got more questions that deal with straight people wrong than he did not answering the one "gay question". (There are a lot of gay lawyers in the state that have no problem passing the Bar exam when most of the questions pertain to heterosexuals, I guess they're just smarter)

An unqualified law student failed the Bar exam, are we surprised that he's on their side?

I'm just glad I don't know any two-lawyer female couples. Wow, what a bad basis for a relationship! :-D

I believe that the essay portion of the test from which that question comes is made up of a small number of big, heavy questions. (Regardless of the gay-marriage angle of that question, it's a monster. Thankfully, we attorneys didn't have to answer 200 questions of that length and complexity on the bar exam!)

My guess is that the gay-marriage essay question was one of (about) ten that test-takers had to answer during one day of the exam. So taking a zero on it really could turn a pretty good score into a bad one.

Of course, the guy's case is still hogwash--nothing in the question requires the test-taker to agree with gay marriage; he or she is just supposed to know the applicable law and put it to use in analyzing the fact situation. Which also happens to be the whole freakin' point of a bar exam....
