Prop 8 - gay baiting

Gay baiting abounds...After the big victory on same sex marriage in California (Prop 8) the right is out in force...

"Here we have an openly gay federal judge substituting his views for those of the American people and of our Founding Fathers who I promise you would be shocked by courts that imagine they have the right to put gay marriage in our Constitution." stated Maggie Gallagher, Board Chair of NOM."

It seems if you are gay you can't make any decisions, yet if you are straight you can condemn anyone or enforce any agenda you want. Homo equals wrong again!

You can sign a petition telling the National Organization for Marriage (very anti gay group) to stop gay baiting! Here is the link - Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund Petition.

And the Republican Senator Scott Brown of Massachusetts will oppose the nomination of former Harvard Law School Dean Elena Kagan to a lifetime position on the United States Supreme Court, due to her limited courtroom experience. Yeah right!

Update: I just saw a great post on this woman on the blog: Gay Persons of Colour

Maggie's head should be doing 360's any second now.

The irony is that the decision, I just read it, essentially rules out any so-called rational basis for denying marriage rights to gay couples, and:

"Moral disapproval alone is an improper basis on which to deny rights to gay men and lesbians. The evidence shows conclusively that Proposition 8 enacts, without reason, a private moral view that same-sex couples are inferior to opposite-sex couples."

That pretty much leaves gay baiting, immature whining, and outright lies.

Walker covered a lot of ground on this one.
