TVC: Dishonest or Dumb?

While I was working on this, I found another page on the TVC website that was so filled with lies and distortions that it made me crazy mad.

Meet in the Middle

My friend Phillip Minton asked be to pass on information about “Meet in the Middle,” a rally to occur on the first Saturday after the State Supreme Court passes down its Prop 8 decision.
