Prop 8 Losers Propagate the Hatred


Yes, it’s time for the Wambulance to ride…Those who voted in opposition to California’s Proposition 8 are supposed to be the loving, tolerant kind.  Apparently, that only extends to people who agree with their views.  Instead they’re being whiners, complainers, and, in some cases, outright bigots and hatemongers.

In yet another show of hatred and bigotry, some anonymous person(s) has posted a web site called Prop 8 Maps.  Utilizing the technology of Google Maps, someone has posted the names, locations, and amounts donated of people who supported and donated to the passage of Proposition 8 (see sample below, name withheld).


I can’t say with certainty that this is illegal or not.  However, it certainly is morally reprehensible.  It’s an obvious attempt at intimidating and harming, in one way or another, individuals who exercised their right to vote on an issue that came before the public in California, which was exercised legally and peacefully by those who participated.  If opponents of Proposition 8 find it morally wrong for gay marriage to be banned, why do some of these same people hypocritically act out against those they should be showing tolerance towards?

Certainly, some on the right have discriminated against homosexuals.  That’s not the issue here, however.  Those people make no pretense of their hatred.  However, it’s quite a different story for those who claim to be tolerant and all-inclusive to suddenly be doling out the kind of hatred and acts that display it towards those with whom they disagree.  It’s the height of arrogance and hypocrisy.  It’s arrogant in that they feel entitled to get away with this kind of blatant hatemongering and hypocritical in that they often chastise others who do not fall in lock-step with their moral, social, and political goals.

This follows other actions like the picketing of peaceful churches who supported the proposition, interruption of some church services by gays kissing one another, and the pillorying of California mega-church pastor Rick Warren, who will be delivering the prayer at President-elect Obama’s inauguration in just a few days.

I don’t agree with those who consider themselves conservatives picketing and demonstrating against homosexuals, either, so it’s not just a one-way street here.  Both sides need to show respect for the other’s viewpoint and there are some like those described above that just aren’t doing that.

  1. It’s funny how hypocritical these groups are. MOst people hang out with groups like themselves and vote along those lines. Yet their are groups of people who tend to say one they believe in one thing like prop 8 and vote the other way.

    Have you seen hypocrisy.com. This is exactly the kind of post people write about there. Their authors are comprised of liberals, conservatives, progressives and so on…. You can associate yourself to whatever kind of group that you want there.

    You can create your own blog there and even import this blog over there easily. I have a blog on there and I really like it.

    It’s powered by the same engine that powers wordpres.com so it’s easy to use.

  2. […] This same thing happened to the opponents of Proposition 8 in California. Those folks were harassed mercilessly in some cases. A web site was even erected with a map showing the names and locations of people who opposed the new law. You can read my story on that travesty here. […]
