Proposition 8- A Nice Hateful Summary of How Religious Institutions Feel About It.

Yesterday, I was so happy to hear that Proposition 8 had been overturned. I never really understood why the gay community stood for it in the first place. Lobbyists and organizers should have suggested to them that they all move away from the state in protest. Then, watch the government retract when they began to see who was really paying for the state. Civil disobedience would have captured everyone's attention.

Nevertheless, I digress.

I initially wanted to post an article highlighting the homosexual perspective on this issue; the joy at being given a very basic legal and civil right in the "land of the free"; The United States of America, where even slaves were allowed to marry. Then, this article came up, completely illuminating the dark undertow of hate that religions feel entitled to share with the rest of us. This is a nice little summary of public statements made by various groups when it had been overturned. The hypocrisy is shameful, and a really great example of how "backwards" this type of brain works.

Check it out.


  1. I really like the Family Council comment.

    They are trying to suggest that gay people have historically "chosen" to not engage in marriage. Making it sound like that has been their choice. Hateful.

  2. Christian organization- of course.
