Mark Morford, queer SF writer, sums it up beautifully:
But I don't think it stops there. Because when you peel back all those surface factors, when you trace the line of quasi-reasoning back to its source, to the "real" reason many people voted for Prop. 8, I think the real blame lies with, well, the Almighty himself.
That's right, I blame God.
Wait, check that. Let me say it with the proper intonation and slant: Imagine my voice trembling, the very earth beneath my feet rumbling, the very letters you are about to read appearing in enormous gothic capitals, dripping with fire and smoke and Budweiser logos, all surrounded by scowling cherubim armed with poorly printed pamphlets and a severe dislike of throbbing techno: GOD.Originally Posted by wishfuldummy
No DUmmies.. blame yourselves. I bet 1/2 the straight DUers voted against you (thats what, 5 extra whole votes for Prop 8?)
This little loud and proud game you gays are playing with Marriage has been rebuffed in California for the THIRD time.
You already have all the rights of normal people here in CA. Marriage is the latest game you are playing. Your people see through your game.
And you lost, again.
Your buddies, not evangelicals, voted against you. Millions of your fellow Obamarxists punched your tickets. Your own people dont support you.
Read the votes and weep.
You may get a few liberal judges in your corner, lay your hat on them.
But the people are against you. Even your people.
Sucks to be you.
