    str8hardbody saidWell the people had spoken & the VOTERS passed Prop 8 we can't do anything about it even we e-mail them. You can protest or rally and nothing will change unless we vote again. We have to respect the decision of the VOTERS and deal with it.icon_razz.gif


    Errr.... NO we don't
    These people are hiding behind the cloak of invisibility
    Let them be Proud of their vote and/or funding this hatefulness and when someone asks them let them say why they sent money of voted that way

    time to stop being nice about this
    There Should be a PR campaign where voters and people who have sent money should be called and asked why they did what they did
    Then you'll see the hatefulness....then the hoods come off
    and it ain't pretty what lies underneath and they will be exposed for what they are

    True. But a long time ago a majority believed that the earth was flat. If everyone accepted that, we wouldn't be here.
    When we went to war in Iraq-a slim majority believed it was ok-didn't make it right either.
    True the people have spoken-maybe it was their beliefs, maybe they were frightened by the lies-but at some point those that are affected have to come out and show them that we are human beings and this is how it affects us..

    Different people have different solutions-when an injustice is done-be it by the majority or by tyrannical dictators, opposition always festers and rears up...

    On 10/16/08 - I married my partner, Tim (of 7 years) in San Francisco's City Hall. According to Attorney General - Jerry Brown the 16,000 marriages that took before 11/4 place are still valid.
