Video: Reasoned rage
Proposition 8's egregious passage led Californians in at least two cities to take to the streets in principled protest. Here's some footage from various Youtubers:
We have not yet begun to fight.

I was there (in West Hollywood). My wife was detained by the cops for blocking traffic, although they eventually let her go. I was at the head of the protest on Hollywood and Highland and saw the cops beat the crap out of people that were already on the ground.
This isn't over.

You missed the Sacramento news? The protest there?
So...via the political process the people of CA vote to insert the definition of real marriage into the CA Constitution. So...to circumvent the legal will of the people you 'loving' gay activists will resort to open rebellion, civil unrest and anarchy to scream until you get your way.
Well, we won't give in to your tyranny. Lawlessness will not prevail. Count on Yes on 8 supporters in Sacramento to counter any of the shenanigans we know of there...

Nice spin there, Openly4830. But "the real definition" was not inserted -- BIAS was. And the people do not have the right to tyrannically stifle minority rights.
Game on, buddy.

When two people of the same sex can re-produce naturally without the aid of a test tube, a sperm donor or a mad scientist, then I will accept Gay Marriage. Until then, I will remain convinced that marriage is a union between a man and a woman for the purpose of pro-creation. Anything else is either a mental or a genetic disorder.
It would like to isolate all of you "alternative lifestyle" people on a deserted island and allow you to defile each other until you died off from disease and infertility. Any children produced by the Bi-Sexual among you would quickly become objects of lust and would likewise be infected by the sexual diseases that are sure to run rampant through a community such as that, this would be an unavoidable side effect. Perhaps, one day, in the not too distant future, this will become a reality.

There's nothing "egregious" about Nov. 4's pro-man/woman marriage electoral SWEEP. Traditional marriage won fair and square. Queer mobs (and their "allies") are "egregious."

Yes, Toto. It is egregious (no quotes). And we're fairly certain that a reasoned court of law will mete out proper justice.
Cowtown: Your words are not even worth it. But thanks - -they do help our side immeasurably.
