Because I like beautiful girls.
More prop 8 stuff. Sorry for all the folks outside of Cali but this is important shit.
Yay 100 posts
Post hoc, ergo prop8ter hoc... Eh? lol.Well produced... Albeit lengthy to load when one only has dial-up service. Perhaps you could provide a text version that one could peruse for dial-up users while the video loads... Just a thought.The inspiration for my stance on Proposition 8 came from a modern day scripture issued in 1995 titled: The Family: A Proclamation to the World, and may be viewed at: http://www.lds.org/library/display/0,4945,161-1-11-1,00.html ... And before the flame wars start (if this even gets posted) I wish to re-iterate: Voting one's conscience in a democratic society doesn't make one a bigot; if it did then it would demean the democratic process. Bigotry does, however, apply to those who are [b]intolerant[/b] of those of faith, race, politics, etc. Sincerely,Bobby Nichols
http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/protect-marriage-protect-children-prohibit-divorce has a text summary :)I would say being intolerant of someone's sexual identity is as bigoted as being intolerant of someone's skin color : both are features they are born with. Moreover, if LGBT are allowed to marry it does not require churches to agree to host the ceremony. If a church wants to reject a couple that is it's right, but the state is a different manner.
"I would say being intolerant of someone's sexual identity is as bigoted as being intolerant of someone's skin color"I couldn't agree more... The key word is 'intolerant' as in overtly confrontational or hateful manner. A democratic process and/or judicial process is tolerable in our society. An analogy (albeit a poor one) would be if a smoker came into a crowded restaurant that was designated non-smoking and lit up... Those who objected could a) take a stand and kindly bring the to the attention of the smoker that he/she is offending the established rules and please put out the smokimg implement; or b) angrily confront the 'offender' and possibly start a ruckus. An option of c) of ignoring the smoking 'offender' in this social venue is not a viable option. The 'offender' in cases a) and b) could refuse to stop smoking - in which case a higher authority would have to intervene.Social mores are being challenged, being asked to be changed, and people are taking a stand on what they believe to be right according to their own conscience, both pro-Proposition 8 and against. I'm truly grateful that but for a few radical incidents people are resigned to letting the process continue forth civilly on a very polarizing issue... The reality being that the issues involved will be with us for a very long time (sigh).Sincerely,Bobby Nichols
