Proposition 8: Who Are The Haters?

Here's a story about one family's experience with the tactics of No on 8 supporters. All this arose from a yard sign a family placed in its front yard.

What kind of campaign are y'all running?

Sending threatening letters to Prop 8 opponents in an attempt to coerce donations out of them?

Wow. Way to go.

The "No" crowd accusing "Yes" of strong-arm tactics is pretty funny. What color is the sky on your planet, CB?

Apparently, that one thing is the big lie.

If you are now a "former respecter" of mine because of my position on a matter of conscience, I fear that says nore about you than it does about me, my friend.

To get back to the original intent of the post before it was hijacked, I find the police duplicity in S.J. a tad appalling. Speaks to the effectiveness of the intimidation tactics of the gay jackboot illuminati, the real haters. Heaven only knows what they would have done to an ex-gay.

LOL. Just because two people went beyond the normal way of doing things you think that all No on 8 supporters do such a thing. CB makes a better point in which it is the actual people who RUN the campaign that harm the opponent. Brown, you seem to be quite literally an idiot if you think your link makes No on 8 voters any worse than the Yes on 8 votes.

Oh, my goodness. No On Prop 8 has apparently tried to (gasp!) insult me personally!

I do love it when people here try that, but I wish they would at least take a somewhat literate approach to it. For example, the statement that I am "quite literally an idiot" is deeply ironic. But poor No On Prop 8 would not understand that, because if he doesn't know the meaning of the words in his . . . insult, he probably doesn't know what "irony" means. I think that makes his comment doubly ironic.

The pity of irony, sometimes, is that those who are most likely to blurt an ironic statement don't even know they've done so. Oh, well.
