The ballot for Proposition 8 was simply "Eliminates Right of Same-Sex Couples to Marry." The text to be added to the constitution was "Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California."If you put something on the ballot, you take a chance on not getting your way. If you don't get what you want, you try it again... you don't go out and bully or engulf those who disagree with you with anger.
... CA Press Doesn't Address Implications of Theater Director's Resignation Over Prop 8 Support
The litmus test results are in: If you're against the legalization of same-sex marriage and are discovered, you can't be involved in the performing arts in California, even though the majority of potential patrons in your state agree with you.
Under the pressure of a threatened boycott, the artistic director of a Sacramento theater has stepped down after it was learned that he contributed to Yes side ("yes, same-sex marriage should be prohibited") of the supposedly Golden State's Proposition 8 campaign.
... Theater Director Forced to Resign Because Prop 8 Support-THE BLACKLIST IS BACK
Scott Eckern, artistic director of the California Musical Theatre is being forced to resign his post and leaving the organization due to a donation to the movement supporting the amendment. Because of Eckern's support, playwrights and other artists mounted a boycott of the theater and promised not to stop unless Eckern resigned.
... Here are some photos of people supporting Scott Eckern: Exclusive: Photos Of Protest In Support Of Scott Eckern - funny how the media sort of let it fall between the cracks.
Perhaps a list can be generated in order to boycott businesses who did not support Prop 8. I wonder how the media would react to such an action. Would they rush to the scene to report how people were protesting against those who didn't support it? Or would they call the protest a "group of hate mongers"?
It's amazing how it's okay for some people to protest and it's called equal rights... but when it's reversed, suddenly the protesters are racist or hate mongers.
I don't live in California and I'm mildly interested in the issue of gays getting married... but I will not support it if comes here because of one factor and one factor only; the way people act when they don't get their way tells me everything I need to know. My past inclination would be to not vote one way or the other... they changed my mind.
The only thing worse than a poor loser is a poor winner. Running around rioting when you lose and rioting when you win tells me you don't care about anyone ELSE'S rights... so why should I care about yours?
One other thing... why do they feel compelled to push their sexuality in my face? When was the last time a bunch of heterosexuals had a parade to commemorate their sexuality and the fact they have sex with those of the opposite sex?
Please... please don't tell me that gay right parades are not about sex. I've seen some of the parades and witnessed some of the people locked in cages and wearing outrageous outfits usually not seen in public. They are there to flaunt what they are and what they do... their objective is to SHOCK and MORTIFY as many people as possible; especially anyone who is modest.
There are gays in those parades who are not dressed that way and you just know that some are embarrassed to be seen with the "outrageous" and the "odd". It would be the same if I were in a parade with heterosexuals wearing something they found at a sex shop. It's really not a matter of sexual preference so much as a matter of common sense. Keep that stuff in your own home... I could care less what you do there; that's why we invented walls and locked doors.
