First thing… There is some really helpful stuff at Stand to Reason, which clarifies what the proposition was about, and helps to sort through the distracting rhetoric. Here’s a link to just one item, although if you search around there, you’ll find more.
Second thing… A lot of people who voted AGAINST Prop 8 have been protesting. This is sad but understandable, since the proposition passed and they didn’t want it to pass. However, it turns out that a lot of people who voted FOR Prop 8 are also protesting, apparently protesting the protestors.
Now, I voted FOR Prop 8 (and I’m not participating in the protests). But I have to say to the people who voted FOR Prop 8 but who are out there protesting the protestors…
THE PROPOSITION PASSED. Just go home and be thankful for the victory, and quit being upset that people who disagree are voicing their disagreement.
