Why Is Marriage Equality Not In Scare Quotes But Religious Liberty Is ? - Media

One of the religious media watchdogs over at Get Religion looks at perhaps the inconsistent use of scare quotes again by journalist. In this case she is wondering why terms like "religious liberty"  are in scare quotes and "marriage equality is not? See Is “marriage equality” our term, theirs and everyone else’s?

I have to say I think she has a point based on past reasoning for scare quoting the words religious liberty.

When a politician says they stand for "Marriage equality" it always scares me.

Hmm... Maybe we ought to put "square quotes" in square quotes!
