Hey, Mormons!  
I hope you're proud of the Church of Latter Day Saints' (apparent, short-lived) victory on Proposition 8 in California. Because if you're not, WHAT THE FUCK HAVE YOU BEEN DOING FOR THE LAST FUCKING YEAR?. It's your damn church, you slack-jawed fuckwads. What kind of Christian takes away other people's marriages? Where does Jesus tell us to cause pain and misery to people we don't understand or like? Oh, yeah. He doesn't.

If you don't think that Prop. 8 should have passed, I sure as hell hope you're ashamed of your faith, withholding your tithes, and fighting to put your church back on the path of compassion where it belongs. Because right now, you're not just not doing good, you're actively doing evil.

Every member of the LDS I've ever met has been a decent, progressive, smart, thinking human being. Sure, one or two of them believe I'm going to burn in hell because their God made me gay, but that didn't stop them treating me like any other human being, and fiercely protecting my rights to believe that I'm entitled to go to hell on my on dime, smoking pole all the way.

Where the fuck were those people while their damnable church elders pumped money into a lying, deceitful, hateful campaign of intolerance?

Stand up, you cowards.

YES YOU CAN take your church back.

What makes Proposition 8 appear so short-lived? I've been trying to find a silver lining in that.

Demographics.

Old people voted "Yes" something like 60-40.
Medium people voted evenly.
Young people voted "No" roughly 60-40.

It was (and may still be) a very close call, so in 2 (or 4, or whatever) years when the proposition to rescind this abomination can be voted on, the "Yes" folks will lose.

Man. I hope so.

Honestly, it feels like the fight is still on in California. The Arkansas thing is deeply revolting.

On the other hand, there are still signs of progress. That the various anti-choice measures got universally defeated is definitely a good thing.
