The churches are already feeling a backlash because of their lie based homophobia campaign. One of their more disgusting lies was telling potential voters that if proposition 8 was defeated, "homosexuality will be taught in public schools".
I'm not exactly sure how one would be taught homosexuality, but tolerance has been taught in California schools for years. Just another example of how low some of the self righteous can stoop.
I can assure you Cindy that I am totally heterosexual but I'd fight tooth and nail for gays to have the same rights as I do as a married person.
The whole thing makes me wonder why these devout religious people are so worried about a gay person enjoying a life with a loved one of their choosing regardless of the sex of that loved one. How does their love and devotion to each other cause any harm to those religious people.
I've often believed that the people that protest the loudest are usually the ones that fear they may have the same tendencies and use their bluster to cover their insecurities. As an example, my husband has no issues with his sexuality and in his younger days on the music circuit was approached by gay men. He simply said he wasn't interested and not at any time did he feel anger or the need to beat them up for approaching him. They lived their lives, he had his.
Just this past week in a town near Toronto two lesbian women were picking up their child from school and some idiot man accosted them and punched both women in the face. He was charged with assault but the women want the charges to be stiffer (can't remember off the top of my head right now what they were after). I hope these women get the full cooperation of the law and have that idiot of a man sentenced to the full extent the law will allow. Nobody has the right to judge, then to use that judgement to physically assault another human.
These people need to get rid of their fear of homosexuals and get on with their own lives.
