Proposition 8 has passed. Not officially, but with 99.5% of the ballots read and a 400,000+ vote margin, it’s a done deal. Nail in the coffin of equality for all to marry.
What really pisses me off is the completely underhanded way the “pro-traditional marriage” people spun the issue, that they’d start teaching gay “butt sex” marriage in our schools and forcing our kids to know how dudes got it on.
Look, Prop 8 would actually amend the California State Constitution so it’s what would make changes, not the other way around. This leads me to a (rhetorical) question: Are they teaching our kids about gay “butt sex” in our schools now? No? Really? Why he hell are they arguing that point then?
Let’s call a spade a spade here, shall we? They want Prop 8 to pass because they don’t like “the Gays.” That’s what it’s all about, so don’t lie. “Homosexuality is an abomination towards God.” Really? There are so many counter-arguments I could make but won’t. I’ll just make mention of the wishes of our Founding Fathers, the separation of Church and State. You keep your religious views out of my government-funded whatever and I’ll keep my government-funded whatever out of your church. Deal? No?
I am ashamed of California, and ashamed to call myself a Californian today. I should be dancing around like a fool today, what with Barack Obama’s election as President, but I’m not. I feel dirty because ignorant, bigoted fools don’t want to share marriage with “the Gays.”
