I doubt Protect Marriage appreciates the help... Not because they disagree with WBC. Because they know how it looks to normal people.
While I doubt that Fred's endorsement is going to make Cooper's argument before the Court, can you imagine the feeling that has to go with knowing its out there? Ugh.

Ignoring the documentation showing same sex marriages have taken place in many times and places around the world, the brief by WBC does admit there is historical precedent, but only because they hope to show it will destroy the world. From the WBC brief:

"The Babylonian Talmud reveals that until now only one society in all of history practiced it, the Antediluvian. The Babylonian Talmud also says the practice was the reason for Noah’s flood. The risk of retribution is real."

"Another Midrash says that males just didn’t sodomize other males, but that they signed ketobot (marriage contracts) legalizing these re-lationships."
