    yup, that was an inspiring article. but there was a link on the same page to another article that's a bit perturbing:

    http://www.365gay.com/news/gay-bans-embolden-conservative-religious-groups/

    the pious seem to be having a divine & nonsecular collective orgasm over brutalizing the dignity, equality and human spirit of gays everywhere. God is not good.

    The first thing that must be understood is that many many many people claiming to be people of faith are people obsessed with homosexuality, not god. We are objects of obsession. They cannot let us go. Homosexuality is the altar on which they sacrifice almost everything, especially the truth.

    We.
    are.
    divine.

    But, really, think about this. They have devoted millions and millions of dollars and thousands upon thousands of hours of thought to you (the rhetorical you, of course). What is going on here? They have contrived all kinds of lies to persuade others that you pose a danger. Why the devotion?

    Also, from the statistics I've read, the mormon population worldwide is 12 million. Does it seem to anyone else that there is a disproportionately large number of ex mormons here and on other gay themed sites compared to other religions, whose membership might claim hundreds of millions?

    Some jealousy perhaps?

    A friend's mother of 83 put it this way, that the gay guys she knows are kind, compassionate, fun, honest, naturally helpful, (you won't see THEM stepping over an injured person on the street) and not afraid to express themselves, even if no-one agrees with them.

    "Not like ordinary men." she says.

    Fuck if I know. I switched from California wine to French tonight, in protest (my liquor store dealer almost had a heart attack). It's a bit more psychotropic. I refuse to eat the worm at the bottom of the bottle.

    HAHAHA! I finally opened a flyer mailing from the Wall Street Journal trying to introduce me to a wine club. Most of the selected wines were from California and I was disappointed that there were no Long Island wines listed. What punks. American wines don't always equate to California.

    It had to be. If they can't go beyond CA for wine other than overseas, there's something wrong with them. I even found some good wines in VA this summer.

    Lat night my youngest sister cleverly picked out South African Merlot at the liquor store. Beer for me..

    "Equal rights" said the savvy girl. " No Apartheid and OK to Gay marriage." I stupidly blinked. Damn she's quick!

    Boycott Californian wine? I can do that. Just bought a bottle of Spanish wine tonight - they have gay marriage, right? icon_smile.gif

    Good God Almighty I got drunk last night! icon_redface.gif

    I woke up around 3:30 with a massive headache and that nasty dehydrated feeling.

    So if anyone wondered where I suddenly disappeared to, I think I just went pass out on the couch. I can't really remember.

    I agree with this. I'd like to see all of us broaden the scope of attack to include the Catholic Church, in particular, the Knights of Columbus. Remember to keep in mind that many of us already have a view that the Mormon Church is sort of a cult. So it's easy to want to go after them. We should go after them...they WERE the largest movers and shakers behind Yes on 8.

    However, the Catholic Church is a bigger behemoth, with more money and more members, and it's got more "mass" that moves political opinions.

    But I am all for protesting the Mormon Church's involvement. Let's also think about the Catholic Church.

    This is why we should be careful before mounting a campaign.

    This is an article from the SF Chronicle today. You'll note the emphasis on the joining of the Catholics with the Mormons in their assault on our rights.

    But that's not the same thing as saying the Church of Latter Day Saints donated 70% of the funding. In fact, if you read down, you'll see the estimate of 40% NOT from the Mormon Church but from Mormons. There is a big difference. (So the estimates I've seen run from 40% to 77%).

    But the fact that the Mormons who donated did so at the behest and strong pressure of their leader validates our desire to protest in front of Mormon temples. But the Archdiocese of San Francisco should be targeted as well.
