Focus on the Family's latest temper tantrum over the arrival of nationwide marriage equality might be its most desperate yet.

Focus on the Family, the Colorado-based antigay group that claims it advocates for "traditional" families, took a bizarre approach to voice its latest round of discontent with the Supreme Court's landmark June ruling that brought marriage equality to all 50 states.

A special message from FOTF's public policy arm, CitizenLink, features a fifth-grade boy who, as the self-proclaimed "next generation," argues that the five justices who ruled for marriage equality deserve a time out. That would give them some time to think about what they've done and, as the boy in the video suggests, "maybe [read] the Constitution?"

"There's some people who want the government to be a bully, you know the kind that calls you names then steals you lunch or your house or your business," says the host of the segment titled "Stoplight." "I think five of the Supreme Court justices should be put in time out. Maybe they could use that time to read a little, like maybe the Constitution?"

After providing a grade-school lesson on government spending and why you shouldn't believe politicians who promise you "free cellphones or healthcare," our host concludes with an important warning about the ways religious freedom is being suppressed in modern America.

"Because freedom the way the founding fathers intended it means that people have different ideas," the precocious host explains. "For instance, some of us like to go to church, and it's something real to us, and maybe they should exercise more..."

That's when our host is corrected by the distinctly adult voice of a cameraman, clarifying that he means "free exercise of religion."

"Free," the host exclaims. "As in, stop bugging me."
