payback in cali

It seems that the folks that helped pass Proposition 8 this past November in Calfornia aren’t very proud of their work.  Proposition 8 reversed a State Supreme Court decision allowing gay marriage.  Now, people that donated to coalitions and groups supporting Prop. 8 are under fire, claiming harrassment and threats because their names are made public under California campaign finance laws.  Seems they don’t like the publicity, and want to return to anonymity.  I like this quote from one of the lawyers for the supporters of Prop. 8:

“No one should have to worry about getting a death threat because of the way he or she votes,” said James Bopp Jr., an attorney representing two groups that supported Proposition 8, Protect Marriage.com and the National Organization for Marriage California. “This lawsuit will protect the right of all people to help support causes they agree with, without having to worry about harassment or threats.”

Hey asshole, the people you are defending are probably the same people who refused to hire gays, spit in their faces, bullied them, denied them basic civilities, and now have denied them the right to marry whom they choose. 

So, after working hard to deny a certain segment of society the privileges that the rest are accorded, all that these people want is be left alone and allowed to live their lives free from threats and harrassment from others who don’t agree with their choices and beliefs?  Sounds like you made your own bed very nicely.  Time to lie down in it.
