A national LGBT activist group called GetEQUAL has launched a campaign against University of Virginia law professor Douglas Laycock for producing research that could hurt “progressive causes” like gay marriage. But this latest chapter in the culture wars is especially bizarre: Laycock supports gay marriage, and the group targeting him refers to him as a moderate. But he has also supported religious liberty exemptions like SB 1062, the infamous Arizona bill vetoed by the state’s Governor. It would have allowed individuals to use religious freedom as a defense against private discrimination suits brought against them in court.
