Prop 8 – The Musical

Wikipedia defines bigotry as:

“A bigot is a person who is intolerant of opinions, lifestyles or identities differing from his or her own, and bigotry is the corresponding attitude or mindset.”

Anyone who voted for Prop 8 in the recent Californian elections or who contributed money to the campaign for it – the Bill which introduced a ban on same-sex marriage into the Californian constitution – is a bigot, plain and simple. Prop 8 was, of course, mostly financed by the Mormons, The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

According to the Salt Lake Tribune, 77% of the funds for Prop 8 came from LDS families, who were asked/told to support it by the Church, according to an LDS press release.

The Mormons are understandably copping a lot of heat for their actions including an investigation into whether or not they broke Californian disclosure laws.

  1. It seems to me that the Prop 8 vote was a bit of an anomaly in the general trend in public opinion on this issue. Gay people can marry in most of Europe and there’s no way that that’s ever going to change now.

  2. To the point Video! I say if a liitle butt fuc*ing and carpet munching can save the economy then bring it on!!! Ha!…..Religion is an illusion built on HATE/FEAR ..come on people WAKE the fuck up!!!!

  3. “Last night the Senate passed almost 100 laws to remove discrimination against same-sex couples across a broad range of areas such as leave entitlements, superannuation, social security, health and tax.

    The definition of a de facto relationship now also applies to same-sex couples.

    However, Mr McClelland says Labor’s policy on marriage will not change.

    “The Labor Party policy is firm – that marriage is between a man and a woman,” he told ABC2 News Breakfast.

    “Our reforms have been introduced but we haven’t amended the definition of marriage in the Marriage Act.””

    No matter all the laws that they abolished, that shouldn’t have been there in the first place to begin with, it is the “firm belief” that only man and woman should get married that expresses the real truth. Our Government is a homophobic Religious government that has a serious intent in promoting hatred.

  4. Yeah you are right! All those black slaves, and those women who wanted to vote, were bigots as well !!! Let’s just bend over and let religion fuck us and not do anything since we are all bigots anyway!!!!

  5. Gran Jan, you’re totally right that I’m intolerant of bigotry. And slavery. And child molesters. And lots of other forms of injustice. However, being intolerant of injustice doesn’t make you a bigot.

    We’re not trying to push through legislation to stop the Christians from being Christians, or marrying, or believing whatever 2000 year old superstitious nonsense they want to believe. We’re not the ones legislating a minority’s rights away. We’re the ones fighting for justice.

  6. Hey Cam,

    There’s a local Church here where I live, and on their huge God sign out front it read “Don’t have an open mind or your brains will fall out”

    He he… Classic stuff! (i’ll try and take a pic and pass it on)
