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]

Lesbian’s brutal gang rape [terrorism!] investigated in Calif.

Since religious edicts sent out by the Mormon Church, Saddleback church [see the lies] and other extremists to pass Prop 8, an increase of attacks have possibly occurred on our community. Prop 8, which was pushed by religious extremists target the Gay community, and Same-sex love by created a second-class citizen and stripping away equal marriage rights under California’s constitution.

Recently a Lesbian has been a victim of one of these terrorist acts because she is part of LGBTQ community. We have to continue to defend our rights and protect ourselves from these kinds of terrorists. People like Rick Warren send out edicts to their followers that directly target and demonizes the Gay community in the name of their religious doctrine, we have to stand fast, and watch our backs from these kinds of haters.

Lesbian’s brutal gang rape investigated in Calif.
A woman in the San Francisco Bay area was jumped by four men, taunted for being a lesbian, repeatedly raped and left naked outside an abandoned apartment building, authorities said Monday.

Detectives say the 28-year-old victim was attacked Dec. 13 after she got out of her car, which bore a rainbow gay pride sticker. The men, who ranged from their late teens to their 30s, made comments indicating they knew her sexual orientation, said Richmond police Lt. Mark Gagan.

“It just pushes it beyond fathomable,” he said. “The level of trauma – physical and emotional – this victim has suffered is extreme.”

Authorities are characterizing the attack as a hate crime but declined to reveal why they think the woman was singled out because of her sexual orientation. Gagan would say only that the victim lived openly with a female partner and had a rainbow flag sticker on her car.

The 45-minute attack began when one of the men approached the woman as she crossed the street, struck her with a blunt object, ordered her to disrobe and sexually assaulted her with the help of the other men.

When the group saw another person approaching, they forced the victim back into her car and took her to a burned-out apartment building, where she was raped again inside and outside the vehicle. The assailants took her wallet and drove off in her car. Officers found the car abandoned two days later.

The woman sought help from a nearby resident, and she was examined at a hospital. Although the victim said she did not know her attackers, detectives hope someone in the community knows them. One of the men went by the nickname “Blue” and another was called “Pato,” according to authorities.

Richmond police are offering a $10,000 award for information leading to the arrest of the attackers.

Gay rights advocates note that hate crimes based on sexual orientation have increased nationwide as of late. There were 1,415 such crimes in 2006 and 1,460 in 2007, both times making up about 16 percent of the total, according to the FBI.

Avy Skolnik, a coordinator with the New York-based National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs, noted that gay, lesbian and transgender crime victims may be more reluctant than heterosexual victims to contact police.

“Assailants target LGBT people of all gender identities with sexual assault,” he said. “Such targeting is one of the most cruel, dehumanizing and violent forms of hate violence that our communities experience.”

Skolnik said the group plans to analyze hate crime data to see whether fluctuations may be related to the gay marriage bans that appeared on ballots this year in California, Arizona and Florida.

Anytime there is an anti-LGBT initiative, we tend to see spikes both in the numbers and the severity of attacks,” he said. “People feel this extra entitlement to act out their prejudice.”

California win emboldens anti-gay religious groups

Coming to a State near you! Watch out everyone! Don’t believe their lies because a whole lot of Californian’s fell for it.

I keep hearing comments that Prop 8 was not pushed by religious groups, they keep saying what about these people or those over there. Prop 8 people even agree that it is the Mormon’s, Catholics, and Evangelical Christians. All use the same bible that allegedly justifies targeting gay people for persecution. Though Mormons also use “The Book of Mormon”, and a “prophet” who had found some inscription that only he was able to see miraculously wrote it. Why these religious faiths are grouping together to destroy America’s constitution is bewildering since many Evangelical Christian’s see The Book of Mormon as sacrilegious to the bible teachings. My own former faith taught us to beware of false prophets.

Why are they grouping together? I can only image that it’s for the purpose of voting in order to water down America’s constitution in their religious favor, though it’s still unconstitutional for an overbearing tyrannical majority to oppress a minority. Hopefully, our judicial system will continue to protect our constitutions, if not then this country is lost.

Don’t these people have anything better to do besides attacking other people?

They should focus on their own families, and clean their own houses. Don’t mess with our constitutions.

Proposition 8 is illegal, and unconstitutional! The prop 8 people fooled people into voting for it, and they are trying to be sneaky by pushing this thing through. They are supposed to take it through legislation and then the voting process, but they skipped the legislation part because they already knew that it would not pass legislation. California’s legislation had already fixed the law to clarify civil marriage, but it was vetoed twice by the governor because they though it was up to the courts to correct the discrimination. Though marriage went to the Supreme Court as a result of Mayor Newsom marrying 4000 people in San Francisco, that brought about the court case, and the California Supreme Court found that denying civil marriage to same-sex couples is unconstitutional. The religious fanatics just won’t stop making a mess of everything, they can’t stand it when they loose, so they keep wasting taxpayer dollars on the mess they have created.

They don’t understand that their religious laws are not our civil laws, and those they are separate, but they continue to push their religious dogma on the rest of us, and they don’t care what religion you belong to. They will do their best to exert Christian dogma on us all. Then come the inquisitions because they just will not stop.

California win emboldens anti-gay religious groups
Leaders of the successful Proposition 8 campaign say an unusual coalition of evangelical Christians, Mormons and Roman Catholics built a majority at the polls Nov. 4 by harnessing the organizational muscle of churches to a mainstream message about what school children might be taught about same-sex relationships if the ban failed.
Same-sex marriage bans also won in Arizona and Florida. But in putting together the California victory, the coalition overcame opposition from the state’s political establishment and assumptions about how voters in the famously tolerant state would respond to taking away the rights the state’s highest court granted this spring.
“Everyone told me it could not be done, people do not care about this enough, you will be overwhelmed and you will lose,” said Maggie Gallagher, executive director of the National Organization for Marriage, a New Jersey group that provided seed money early this year to qualify the measure for the ballot.

Marriage Equality. Separate Church and State law. Civil law belongs to the people, and every one should be treated with respect and dignity. Repeal Prop 8!

Name Calling From “Family Research Council” Tony Perkins

Now the Family Research Council is claiming advocacy of anarchy!

This is just another one of those religious groups set up to target Gay people by creating an organizational name for tax free status. Beware, all they do is attack Gay people and allege that Gay people have an agenda!!! Don’t be fooled!

BTW, that agenda is EQUALITY!

How does he think this country was found? I’m not suggesting anarchy, but if that is the label they are using today, I can’t wait to hear the next label. It’s strange that a people who claim to be so devoutly religious and family oriented would resort to such an attack on our Governor and Our community! It’s outrageous!

All those people should stay out of California, and stop funneling illegal funds into California for the sake of passing an illegal vote against Californian’s in the name of their religion.

What about the continued lies they use to attack Californian’s, and Our families! They seem to pretend that their families are better than other families! How could this be when their divorce rate is higher than 60%, and when they divorce they use the children to go against another parent!

We still live in a country that has religious freedom and for them to take away the civil rights of those individuals is unconstitutional and illegal. You cannot vote away a groups right to be free and treated equally the same under civil laws, either California’s or the United States!

Your church and your religion is your business and that should not be forced upon us! This is why people are protesting, and we have a right to support the cause of equality, and stop these religions from pushing they’re hated upon the rest of our society.

They need to keep their religion to themselves and stop this nonsense of pretending they don’t see it as bigotry!

I’ve heard the games from them for far to long. Some people still hang on to the bigotry brought upon the Japanese American to this day, and allege that taking everything away was not discrimination, even though the government had already agreed that it was wrong.

So you cannot tell me that Prop 8 is not Hate! Prop 8 is about discrimination base on religious dogma as conferred by the Mormon Church in Utah. Some sent out letters in other states pushing propositions by Church leaders, and it’s plausible they did the same in California. Most if not all of those propositions single out, and target our Gay brother’s, sisters and families.

They are the ones trying to water down our constitution for their religious needs.


“Since Election Day, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) has made statements supporting demonstrations against Proposition 8, and urging California ‘s Supreme Court to block the amendment’s enforcement…Condoning street protests and supporting judicial activist scams to overturn a popularly approved state constitutional amendment approaches advocacy of anarchy. Gov. Schwarzenegger is playing a dangerous game, and it needs to stop. Now.”

Legal Suit Filed Against Prop 8; It’s Unconstitutional!!!

I’ve been saying all along that Prop 8 is unconstitutional, and it doesn’t matter what the majority vote say’s.

Prop 8 discriminates against people in favor of the Mormon Church and other Christian’s that backed Prop 8!

The claim that it’s a religious liberty issue is false because it actually violates my own religious liberty as a Buddhist!

The claim that ‘marriage’ belongs to the Christian’s is false as well. The church never adopted the practice of marriage until around the 8th century, and our civil laws are inherited Pagan laws passed to us from the Pagan people. The practice of marriage was for the purpose of proving property rights and heirs.

Marriage is NOT a Christian invention!

California’s constitution protect the minority from an over bearing majority, and our laws also call for the separation church laws and state laws, get that through your head.

We do NOT live in a theocracy!

Legal Suit Filed Against Prop 8; It’s Unconstitutional! [Read More]
“If the voters approved an initiative that took the right to free speech away from women, but not from men, everyone would agree that such a measure conflicts with the basic ideals of equality enshrined in our constitution. Proposition 8 suffers from the same flaw – it removes a protected constitutional right – here, the right to marry – not from all Californians, but just from one group of us,” said Jenny Pizer, a staff attorney with Lambda Legal. “That’s too big a change in the principles of our constitution to be made just by a bare majority of voters.”

“A major purpose of the constitution is to protect minorities from majorities. Because changing that principle is a fundamental change to the organizing principles of the constitution itself, only the legislature can initiate such revisions to the constitution,” added Elizabeth Gill, a staff attorney with the ACLU of Northern California.

The lawsuit was filed today in the California Supreme Court on behalf of Equality California and 6 same-sex couples who did not marry before Tuesday’s election but would like to be able to marry now.

The groups filed a writ petition in the California Supreme Court before the elections presenting similar arguments because they believed the initiative should not have appeared on the ballot, but the court dismissed that petition without addressing its merits. That earlier order is not precedent here.

“Historically, courts are reluctant to get involved in disputes if they can avoid doing so,” said Shannon Minter, Legal Director of NCLR. “It is not uncommon for the court to wait to see what happens at the polls before considering these legal arguments. However, now that Prop 8 may pass, the courts will have to weigh in and we believe they will agree that Prop 8 should never have been on the ballot in the first place.”

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

Discrimination Still Exists in America! Save Our Constitutions!

We have some serious fanatics in America!  This is the reason why we should never allow any group or religion to alter Our Constitutions for their hateful needs!  It sad to say, but for a long time I’ve watched McCain supporters, and I’ve watched Obama supporters.
All you have to do is look at the make up of those standing behind them and shouting, and listening to what they say to  figure out who has the better heart!

Discrimination should never be allowed in any of Our Constitutions!

No on Prop 8 it has Nothing to do with School Corriculum!

Some people are trying to confuse voters!

Prop 8 doesn’t have anything to do with changing school curriculum! It changes the California’s constitution to suit the needs of a religion or fanatical religious groups. You never change the constitution to suite religion nor should I or my family be governed by religion not of my choosing.

Parents have always had a say in school curriculum, if their is a problem with that, then they take it up with their local school.

I choose not to teach children the hate that is being pushed on Homosexual families. Some allege that Prop 8 is not hate. It is discrimination, and that IS by definition HATE! You don’t have to like anyone, but WE as a society should never add this discrimination in California’s constitution.

Prop 8 is hate and discrimination because it takes away the rights of a loving family who share a life, and need a civil marriage to hold it together legally. The Civil Law is for the purpose of proving property rights and heirs. Civil Laws and Religious Laws are separate. They need to stop trying to restructure our civil laws to suit their needs.

The courts even approved the proper wording of Prop 8 which the supporters didn’t like because it tells the truth. It doesn’t give the lies they are telling over the internet in comment posts or fliers being sent out or the lies the their telemarketers are putting into youtube and youtube comments!

Why the need to lie about Prop 8? Because they are liars and lies are how they get converts and donations!

Prop 8 isn’t even about changing school curriculum, it’s about taking away rights of people to have a secure loving home under the constitution and our civil laws. If you have a problem with school curriculum then go to your local school district. Each school district educates dependent on the community and some offer French speaking classes, and some offer Spanish speaking classes. If parents don’t want Spanish then they go to their LOCAL school board and working on the curriculum!

Aside from that the California Teachers Association [NOT MA!] has already told us that Prop 8 has nothing to do with teaching. That is a fear tactic, and fear tactics are typical practices of the Church.

I truly feel sorry for the parents backing such a ban because they will have children who are Gay!

TO MANY UNBIASED PROFESSIONALS HAVE SPOKE OUT AGAINST PROP 8! When I say unbiased I’m talking about religious backers, religious interference and religious groups. I have a problem with them trying to restructure OUR constitution! We have American’s fighting a war as a direct result of alleged “fanatics” targeting America, and we do not need fanatics inside trying to destroy our constitutions. WE LIVE IN AMERICA AND IT’S NOT A THEOCRACY!

Sex Education:
If you only watched TV ads, you might think Proposition 8 had something to do with sex education in public schools. It doesn’t. It says nothing about education. See: http://www.sacbee.com/110/story/1351698.html

300 Pediatricians
The NO on Prop 8 campaign today released a statement signed by more than 300 leading California pediatricians announcing their joint opposition to Prop 8 and concluding that the physician who signed the Prop 8 ballot statement, Jane Anderson, MD, in no way represents the majority of pediatricians on this issue. The pediatrician statement took issue with Dr. Anderson, who identifies herself as a Fellow of the American College of Pediatricians. According to that organization’s Web site, the American College of Pediatricians believes homosexuality is “preventable and changeable” and that “spanking can be an effective component of discipline.” See: http://www.acpeds.org

The pediatrician’s full statement against Prop 8 reads as follows:

“As pediatricians who care for children and families of California, we are writing to publicly deny any implication from the recently mailed “2008 California Voter” Guide that pediatricians support Prop 8. In the Guide, a rebuttal to the argument against Proposition 8 is signed by a pediatrician who is self-identified as a Fellow of the American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds). We wish to clarify that the ACPeds is an organization that does not in any way represent the majority of pediatricians’ opinions regarding this initiative.

“The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), not the ACPeds, is the national organization with over 60,000 members that represents American pediatricians. The Board of Directors of the national office of the AAP commissioned a review of the relevant literature regarding child health in the context of same sex unions. The report was authored by a diverse panel of twelve experts from around the country and was published in the AAP’s journal Pediatrics in 2006. It concludes,

‘Civil marriage is a legal status that promotes healthy families by conferring a powerful set of rights, benefits, and protections that cannot be obtained by other means. Civil marriage can help foster financial and legal security, psychosocial stability, and an augmented sense of societal acceptance and support. Children who are raised by civilly married parents benefit from the legal status granted to their parents.

‘Gay and lesbian people have been raising children for many years and will continue to do so in the future; the issue is whether these children will be raised by parents who have the rights, benefits, and protections of civil marriage.

‘There is ample evidence to show that children raised by same-gender parents fare as well as those raised by heterosexual parents. More than 25 years of research has documented that there is no relationship between parents’ sexual orientation and any measure of a child’s emotional, psychosocial, and behavioral adjustment… Conscientious and nurturing adults, whether they are men or women, heterosexual or homosexual, can be excellent parents. The rights, benefits, and protections of civil marriage can further strengthen these families.’

“As physicians who care for society’s most vulnerable members, we are committed to supporting what is best for our patients. In our clinical experience, supporting loving families supports children. Supporting the union and legal right of parents who care for our patients is not only the right thing for us to do; it is the professional thing to do.

“Please join us in protecting our patients and vote against Proposition 8 on November 4.”

The statement and the full list of pediatricians who signed it is posted online at www.noonprop8.com

Constitutional attorney Jim Brosnahan
Constitutional attorney Jim Brosnahan heard Prof. Richard Peterson’s claims in ads about Prop 8, and wants to set the record straight. He challenged Peterson to a debate, but he never responded. So Jim took matters into his own hand, first publishing a response called A Debate with Myself on Proposition 8 and now he with his first-ever YouTube video.

Prop 8 is About Discrimination!

I don’t suspect the church realized that their Prop 8 would have uncovered all these other deep dark secrets that people didn’t even realize occurred, not to long ago.

Prop 8 is About Discrimination!
Using historical footage, the ad reminds voters of three particularly bleak periods in state history:

— Japanese American Internment: Authorized by President Roosevelt in 1942, the Army ordered all people of Japanese descent, whether citizens or non-citizens, living in CA to be interned in permanent “relocation centers.” Those centers remained operational until the end of the war. Former Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren, who was California Attorney General at that time, later wrote that the internment was “not in keeping with our American concepts of freedoms and rights of citizens.”

— California’s Ban on Interracial Marriage: In 1948, California became the first state in the nation to wipe away a state law banning interracial marriages. In the 1967 case of Loving vs. Virginia dealing with the remaining state bans, the United State Supreme Court ruled that: [T]he freedom to marry has long been recognized as one of the vital personal rights essential to the orderly pursuit of happiness by free men. Marriage is one of the ‘basic civil rights of man,’ fundamental to our very existence and survival.”

— Racially Restrictive Covenants: These covenants were widely enforced in the early 20th century to discriminate against African Americans, Jews and other ethnic groups by prohibiting the lease or sale of property. The covenants were widely used in the Central Valley against Armenians. They were declared unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1948.

In 2007, on the 40th anniversary of the Loving vs. Virginia decision, Mildred Loving wrote: “I am still not a political person, but I am proud that Richard’s and my name is on a court case that can help reinforce the love, the commitment, the fairness, and the family that so many people, black or white, young or old, gay or straight seek in life. I support the freedom to marry for all. That’s what Loving and loving, are all about.”

Prop 8 People Exploit Children for Ad

From lies, to manipulating the voter’s, exploiting children to threats, sound familiar? It’s what they do best! I’ve been hearing this stuff since my teens, and fortunately for me, I have evolved!

Prop 8 People Exploit Children for Ad
SACRAMENTO – The parents of the two children most prominently featured in the latest multi-million dollar Prop 8 political spot today termed those ads “distasteful and exploitative” and demanded that the ads be taken off the air immediately. Both sets of parents – Laura Hodder and Matt Alexander and Jen Press and James Moore, sent two hand-delivered letters this morning. The first letter is to the Prop 8 Campaign demanding the ad be removed from its television and its Web site where it is being used as a fund raising tool. The second letter to the San Francisco Chronicle asks them to intervene on their behalf. The Prop 8 campaign manipulated video that the Chronicle has posted on its Web site.

In their letter to the Prop 8 campaign, the parents wrote: “We are absolutely outraged that you have chosen, without permission, to shamelessly hijack the images of our innocent children to promote a cause that we in no way, shape or form support. It is even more maddening that you have willfully and calculatingly edited the images of our children, with menacing music in the background, in a way that is completely contrary to their nature and harmful to them.”

Threats email donation form: Support NO on 8

Vote No on 8

The Bigots from Yes on 8 Campaign are threatening business if they do not donate to their campaign.

This seems to be the typical norm for these alleged “conservatives” who claim to be Christian or Mormon. ARE THEY REALLY KIND AND LOVING? It’s the same tactics I see on the Presidential campaign trail on the alleged “conservative” side. They are doing all they can to tell lies about Obama and his plans for America.

Attacks are childish behaviors! What we need are people that will tell us their plans, and tell us why they are better, without resorting to childish attacks.

Obama IS telling us what he plans and why he is good for America, yet McCain is full of attacks toward Obama. I haven’t any clue what McCain will do to fix Our Country or Our Economy.

Attacks are now coming from the “yes on 8” campaign in the same manner. This is all these people have.

VOTE NO on 8 because we don’t need that kind of bigotry coming from outside or inside of California.

Threats email donation form: Support NO on 8
If lies don’t work, then maybe threats will.

That’s what the Yes on 8 campaign seems to think – they are now sending threatening letters to businesses and supporters of Equality California – warning that they will go after our donors if they don’t donate to their campaign and refrain from supporting Equality California in the future.

We will not be intimidated by their threats and we will stand with our supporters.

Make a donation today [and add your name to the EQCA website] to show the other side that we will not go back to the closet of inequality.
