In The Wake of Proposition 8

Protests last night in Los Angeles and San Francisco

The lawsuits have begun, and the protests.

Mormons led contributions in excess of 40 million to pass Prop 8 from out-of-state.
Just think of how they could have helped their own people in need with that kind of money.
So much for charity. TAX THE CHURCH.

Details on support of Prop 8 from out-of-state-Mormons, and from a large percentage of African-American voters in the Christian Science Monitor.

From the Los Angeles Times: Proponents of Prop 8 frame the issue not on marriage as much as on children and education.

Fox news reports on the Prop 8 protests in California.
Here's a highlight from that article that absolutely enraged me:
"Meg Waters, part of the Yes on 8 campaign team, told City News Service, "gay and lesbian couples have exactly the same protections under the law with civil unions." (LIE)
"Marriage has been defined as a man and woman since time began," Waters said.
(LIE) "The people of California have voted twice, so I think the best thing to do is for everybody involved to figure out a way to move forward." (LIE)
Waters said she understands "how gays and lesbians may feel concerned about this."
"If they stop and look at the situation, they have the exact same legal protections and rights under the law today they had yesterday," Waters said.
"You can't change the definition of something that existed forever because you don't like it."
The Yes on 8 campaign has "a great deal of compassion for gay and lesbian couples and support completely their right to live as they choose, whether it's in a committed relationship and a domestic partnership or however they choose," Waters said.
"We don't believe that Proposition 8 hinders that at all," Waters said. "We're hoping very much to rebuild bridges to that community at some point."

All hypocrisy of "compassionate conservatism"
