Prop 8 voters, you are an embarrassment to civil rights.

I don't think you have to worry GT. I they didn't boot him out after his stunt in '04, they're not likely to boot him out now.

GT, voters in San Francisco overwhelmingly voted against Prop 8. Gavin is right in step with the SF voting population.

I'm still in shock about this...for a few hours Wednesday I thought we really had come so far. Imagine if we made interacial marriage illegal? the opponents used the same arguments back in the forties...it's amazing how quickly people forget when it's not their rights being trounced on

Whilst not entirely related to the thread, let me tell you of the only place on the internets that will lie to you about English language, traditions, customs and stuffs.
Oh yes, we have many stuffs:
Come for the comedy, stay for the hilarity.

So, with the passage of Proposition 2, Couped animals now have more rights than me, a gay man, who currently is legally married to my spouse, another man. However, if the Mormons, Roman Catholics, Evangeliticals and other bible thumping bigots get their way, they will seek to terminate any and all Same Gender Marriages.
I am not only disappointed with the outcome of the SLIM passage of Proposition 8, I am disappointed the Yes on 8 campaign chose to do so with out of state money, LIES and overstated facts.
I welcome now what the courts will rule. They will not, cannot rule in favor of the bible thumping phuck-nutz. You cannot grant rights and then legislate to take them away. That is what Proposition 8 accomplishes. Even more disturbing... the Afro-American community, people who lived the lives of being oppressed, segragated, suffered bigoted treatment, voted "yes"? I'm sorry, but is that what they need to do to feel better about themselves to be one rung better than anybody? Is that Equality? NOPE. Just more dunbass bigotry. Congratulations to the Afro-American Community who did vote "Yes" - you played well as a puppet.
Barrack Hussein Obama said he didn't support Gay Marriage but opposed the Ban. DID THEY MISS THAT?

You are idiots for one, they voted yes on the ban deal with it.
You guys act like you can take it back, like so I can sue california because McCain didnt get voted in? no I don't you shouldnt get to turn anything around either.
You might be a person, though everyone has freedom of choice, you don't make choices for everyone, thats what voting is about, if they say no you listen, nobody is taking your freedom away, you want to force churches to marry you, yet you don't like people forcing you not to get married, so ironic that you think you're doing good when you're not, you are forcing something on someone else, you are not better than they are.
I agree on prop 8, I will agree on it all the time for the ban, like 100 million people did, if you guys win that law suit, we will sue california because our votes were supposed to count, what makes you better than us? you can say the same but its not us making a big deal out of something, you wanna steal our title "Marriage" stay your own titles "gay relationship" oh and be mad at me, cause I have nothing against you guys, though I don't like the idea you trying to force churches to marry you all when they dont want to.

Your votes, as they did in the past, and as they did when the vote was about racial segregation, were WRONG. They went in the face of the constitution, and civil rights, and they did nothing to advance humanity or humanitarian causes.
Proposition 8 was founded on lies, we don't want to marry in your shitty little churches, we want to get a damn marriage license at the town halls simply for the legality of it. Fuck you, and your religion that says that we're 'abominations' while also saying that lobster and cotton poly-blend are 'abominations'.
The stupid majority has no right to decide on the civil rights of an oppressed minority.

"Barrack Hussein Obama said he didn't support Gay Marriage but opposed the Ban. DID THEY MISS THAT?"
Absolutely, 100% spot on. I don't like either choice of president, but Obama was far better because while he admitted to not liking gay marriage, he CLEARLY stated that he was against the ban. Just like he clearly (in that television interview where they only take the snippet of him saying 'my muslim religion') never said he was a muslim. He was saying 'my muslim religion' with regards to McCain and other Republicans implying he was muslim and talking about his religion as though he were a muslim. But NOOOO, all I've ever seen are fundies taking that one line, and not showing the whole interview in context. Talk about disingenuous! Wasn't one of the commandments not to lie?
Stop quote mining, douches!

Candidates should be voted on, absolutely.
Civil rights however should never be voted on. Social issues shouldn’t even BE issues. ALL citizens have equal rights and liberties under the law, that’s it, the end, no ifs ands or buts.
Marriages don’t require a religious ceremony. This about civil marriage, on the government level. And all citizens should be equal under their governments. California law specifically said that churches would never be forced to perform any ceremony they didn’t want to perform. Go read the law and stop buying all the lies the prop 8 ads spoonfed you.
