Defending the Separation of Laws! Keep Fanatics Off OUR Constitution!

Religious Propaganda Machine; I Know It All To Well!

I’ve been saying all along the Mormons and other religious fanatics were telling people lies just to get the votes they needed to win, which by the way was about 52% barely making it, so  you know that there’s some bias there.  We have them in every society there’s always that 2% of bigotry in society that we can do without, and we wouldn’t being going throught this religious trial, paid for by taxpayers, fighting for the civil rights of Californian’s to be treated equally.

Pound Prop 8: Tracking the Trial Tweets « Prop 8 Trial Tracker

Perhaps it is because I’m Jewish, a Lesbian, married to a Black woman and living in Orange County that I am so highly attuned to the propaganda generated by the proponents of prop 8. Maybe there is something in my historical memory that insists that I be hyper-alert to dangerous rhetoric, given the knowledge that for centuries, propaganda has been used to stigmatize, marginalize, oppress, violate, and annihilate people like my wife and me. Like so many others, I was looking forward to watching the trial broadcast on YouTube because I knew that people would finally get to see for themselves the bigotry and lies that were at the heart of prop 8; they would get to see the testimonies of Kristin Perry & Sandra Stier, and Paul Katami & Jeffrey Zarrillo. Surely this would move many hearts and minds, regardless of the verdict.

When the media started paying attention to the battle over whether or not the trial would be broadcast, I noticed the comments coming from the defense. We know they didn’t want people to hear and see the testimonies; broadcasting the trial would prevent them from spinning the facts and might allow a reasonable public to hear the truth and identify with the very sympathetic plaintiffs. But with their spin, the propaganda began. Once again, they were attempting to control the public perception of gays and lesbians. There they were on the major news networks, talking about risking the safety of their clients and their clients’ families, and about needing to protect “the children.” This is the same propaganda that was used to dehumanize Blacks here in America and abroad, and Jews (and LGBTs), in nazi Germany. The rhetoric makes us into predators who pray on children and angry, out-of-control monsters who will destroy civilization.  [read this article]

Religious Dogma; Vote NO on 8! Protect OUR Constitution!

What about OUR children?

VOTE NO ON 8!

If these special religious groups or the Mormons pass Prop 8, I’m sure they will try and force their religious Dogma on Our children in our schools! They’re already trying to push it in our constitution by pushing this change which suits their church needs.

I don’t know about you, but I want my children to be taught the truth, scientific truth, not religious Dogma filled with fantasy, fiction, and invisible people in the sky!

This is why we have Separation of Religious Laws and Civil Laws! The church and it’s followers follow their own religious laws with in their own church while civil law protects every one, including those of us not of the Mormon following.

Mormons can have as many wives as they want under their religious laws, but civil law requires only one civil contract, so the other wives are concubines, but under church law they are ‘wives’. That is there business as long as they’re not abusing the children to get their wives.

DO NOT ALTER OUR CONSTITUTION TO TAKE RIGHTS AWAY, ESPECIALLY FOR RELIGIOUS PURPOSES!

VOTE NO ON 8!

Hey!?! How does my civil marriage undermine your screwed up religious marriage? Civil marriage belongs to the people, religious marriage belongs to the church. People have a CHOICE to go to a church. Civil marriage is an Old Pagan practice
