California Evangelicals Can Suck My Ovaries

How California can vote for hope and change in one column and for discrimination and injustice in another is so far beyond my comprehension, I'm still shocked and nauseous.

Do Californians not know from the Declaration of Independence: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL. Say it with me, EEEEEEQQQUUUAAAAL. Not, equal, but, or equalish, or equal by my personal definition. EQUAL, full stop.

Hello, what about the fucking Constitution? Ever read that? Here's a link. Knock yaselves out.

We have to get involved and do everything in our power to stop this. Here's the dish: Revoke LDS Church 501 (c) (3) Status, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has gone too far in substantial activities to influence legislation.

Read the official Prop 8 Letter California and Same Sex Marriage. Add your notes to the pre-filled Tax-Exempt Organization Complaint (Referral) Form and email it eoclass@irs.gov.

Donate to Proposition 8 and help in the fight against discrimination and hate.

Sign the petition to Overturn Proposition 8.

Hangon, I didn't realize ovary sucking, especially yours, was an option. And honestly, if I were you I wouldn't give those homophobic bastards the pleasure of getting near your ovaries.

Your opening statement/question makes me wonder WTF too. Sad, sad, sad. I can't sign the petition but I can donate!

I still think we should try sending all the wingnut Jesusheads to Antarctica to enact their paradisaical Townhouse on a Hill and let em blow each other up over misinterpreted-for-the-billionth-time passages in a book written by a bunch of fundies 2500 years ago.

I already got on Change.gov and told President-Elect Obama that my vision of the country includes equal rights for the gay/lesbian community and reminded him that separate is not equal. I hope he adds "reverse bans on same-sex marriage" to his "To Do" list.

I will be signing the petition and try to get the Mormon 501(c)(3) designation eliminated...anything we can do to fight this.

Preach it! The Constitution and the Bible have been misinterpreted for years. Why don't people just worry about their own lives and quit trying to tell me how to live mine! The "Evangelicals" are giving the rest of us a bad name. Maybe if we give the Mormons back their polygamy, they'll leave the rest of us alone?

OK, OK, I'm trying desperately to find some kind of silver lining. Here's what I've arrived at:

As horrible as the prop 8 vote was, at least those bigots still voted for Obama. Which means that the GOP, even though they can still whip up fear and bigotry, are not quite as successful at getting people to vote against their own economic self interest by scaring them with abortion and gays. Having voters compartmentalize is, maybe, a little better than just having them vote in Republicans across the board because they're afraid of homos, abortionists and gun grabbers.

Now we have to work on the homophobia. The struggle continues.

O my god!
You are a Jew!
Don't you feel bad about that?
Don't you know that the Jews murdered our Lord?
Get yourself together and turn to the right religion before it's too late, girl!

Interestingly enough, two Mormons visited my house yesterday.

One of them was "Colored," which made my heart pitter patter with glee.

Who knew the Mormons was Integrated?

Fuck Antarctica, send the Shitheels on a search mission to Atlantis.

If PG and I weren't still legally married I would ask you to marry me! ;)

Umm, with the wingnuttery crowd, logic is never the issue. It's raw gut psychological craziness that makes them ignore facts and stick to emotional claptrap. I'm afraid they cannot be persuaded, but I would argue that some of that vote in California reflects just lack of understanding of the real issues. Perhaps the Anti-Prop 8 folks, including myself, did not do enough to educate those who have cultural issues with homosexuality. We must redouble our efforts.

As I see it, there are four choke points for the Democrats in this order: Secularism, LGBTQ rights, opposition to the death penalty, opposition to war.

There is not a chance in hell that any Democratic candidate for the presidency of the USA can take the open-minded humanitarian view on any of those issues and expect to be elected at least in what remains of my lifetime.

The determined "Noes" on Prop 8, will be under a lot of pressure to not make the national party take the opposite position of the president. Much like Cindy Sheehan and Pat Tillman's families were more or less banished from the Democratic party over issues of war and peace, LGBTQ rights will be the first issue of conscience in which you'll have to decide whether you're a Democrat first or a human being first.

I know where I am. Here's a hint: I'm not a partisan, although I favor left wing Democrats. I'm certain I'm morally right, but not sure that were I an American voter whether grinding Obama through what Clinton went through at the hands of Powell at the beginning of his presidency over "don't-ask-don't-tell" is the greatest idea.

I'm going to grind to a fine paste on this issue because there's no way that a republic can survive with a legislative process that continually removes rights as opposed to adding them.

I don't think it's a close call between granting normal human rights to normal humans and causing the national party a little discomfort because the American people can't man-up and deal with this simple fact of life.

Maybe having a strong Democratic Party with Republican social values is worth it or even a good thing to someone else.

I can't vote and I can't contribute to any party or initiative.

I must note with great horror, that a certain minority which has benifitted from Civil Rights from the 60s has seen fit to withhold the Blessings of Liberty to the Gay Community by providing the margin of victory for Proposition Eight with their 70% support for it.

This 70% is an even greater percentage than that the voting blocks who normally oppose Gay Rights, such as Fundies, Rightwing Nuts, the Klan, etc. However, with Treachery like that from that particular minority, which has benifited so much from Civil Rights and is an integral part of the Rainbow Coalition, who needs the Klan?

Were Martin L. King alive today, he would take a Milk Bath in the hopes of erasing the hideous stain put there by his own people from their rabid support of Proposition Eight.
