Here I was hoping to spend my Friday singing Kumbaya with my fellow man, drink hot chocolate and maybe do some work but shabam! Local new talks about how the No on 8 campaign is violently protesting the LDS church- not just in California but IN UTAH?
Seriously? No- really? Are you kidding me? In Utah? Well hell, with that rational I think I'm going to protest the presidential election- IN MEXICO!
Protesting a church headquartered in Utah- because 54% of the state of CALIFORNIA passed prop8? What on earth is this going to accomplish? Do they think the Church has that kind of influence? I'm sure they'll see the protesters out front and pick up their bat line to Governator and let him know the church has changed their mind, so if the state of California could please deduct the Mormon 2% from the overall vote they'd really appreciate it.
2% TWO PERCENT- that's the amount of the LDS population in California. One, Two. However, the LDS church is apparently the mastermind behind prop8 passing. (I had no idea we had so much power)
Not making much more logic, the homosexual community in California thinks the best way to get their point across is to spew venom at a temple belonging to 2% of the vote.
Who really is to blame for Prop8 passing? Barack Obama. Indeed it's all Barack's fault. 70% of African American voters voted YES on 8. And due to Barack Obama being on the ticket African American voters came out in unprecedented numbers. Click here for the Slate article.
Pop quiz: What are there more of in California, Mormons or African Americans?
In reality, if the homosexual community wanted to direct their anger and frustration towards the REAL source of prop8 passing they'd target president elect Barack Obama
If they wanted to start yelling at the group that put prop8 over the top, they'd be labeling all African Americans as bigots- but dude, you can't do that! So let's go after the MORMONS.
One last thing- even if you opposed Prop8, and you relish the idea that the courts will over turn the decision made by our trusted system of democracy- we should be afraid that the voice of the people will be muted- not on this issue but any issue, because democracy is now ignored and we will now be ruled by appointed judges.
Ok, my rant is done- I feel a little bit better now.
