So-called Christian groups threaten to hold snit-in 

Leave no institution uncudgeled. Self described "Christian" coalition discouraged at pace of national renewel efforts. In it's continuing crusade to bludgeon as many people as possible into submission the "Arlington Group" (yet one more special interest collective of freedom hating right-wing-nut cross lighters), has vowed to withhold support for the Bush administration's efforts to destroy the traditional family institution of social security unless it makes an equally fanatic effort to destroy attempts by gay people to participate in the traditional family institution of marriage.

(From yesterday I think. But I didn't get to make a smart-ass comment about it then - so...):
Backers of Gay Marriage Ban Use Social Security as Cudgel

WASHINGTON, Jan. 24 - A coalition of major conservative Christian groups is threatening to withhold support for President Bush's plans to remake Social Security unless Mr. Bush vigorously champions a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.


...the Arlington Group, is increasingly impatient.

In a confidential letter to Karl Rove, Mr. Bush's top political adviser, the group said it was disappointed with the White House's decision to put Social Security and other economic issues ahead of its paramount interest: opposition to same-sex marriage. ~ NYTimes (log in not required)
