Scary Gay People Meme Watch

Rep. Tom Feeney (R-FL):

"The California Supreme Court today effectively thwarted the will of the people by overturning a voter-approved gay marriage ban. I'm appalled that unelected judges have irresponsibly decided to legislate from the bench and overturn the will of the people


"Florida's hardworking families should know that I will continue to fight to prevent San Francisco taxes and values from infiltrating our community," said Feeney.

The first paragraph is fine (inaccurate vis-a-vis unelected judges, but certainly a reasonable statement from someone who opposes same-sex marriage.)

The second paragraph is coded gay-baiting... right?
