H8te



It's funny what you learn when you visit other places. For instance, did you know that Californians are voting this year on whether to intentionally put discrimination INTO their state Constitution???

INTO...

I don't even know how this is possible. California Proposition 8, it seems, amends their state constitution to discriminate against homosexuals, polygamists, hermaphrodites and transsexuals.

I mean, the very purpose for a constitution is to LIMIT the power of government and ensure the rights of the individual, NOT to take away fundamental rights of individuals. That is entirely against the purpose of a constitution!

I am baffled. I am dismayed. What the hell is the point of anything in this country if we can just turn a constitution into a weapon of hatred??

History is repeating itself. The Visigoths are on their way...

  1. I have heard a rumor the initiative is being funded by the Mormon Church, although totally unsubstantiated.

    Two things I do not want to see in the voters information books:
    1. "Amends the constitution"
    2. Bill Seizemore

  5. Yep, this is my state and I am so proud. There is a small group of teachers on my staff who are in a tizzy because "someone" told them they would have to teach homosexuality. Will there be a power point presentation?

  6. Although this has been buried within the blog, I want to correct my previous statement. Apparently the initiative is being heavily bankrolled by the Knights of Columbus, not the Mormon Church. My apologies for my earlier misstatement.

Be compelling.
