Politics: No on Prop 8



ChinoBlanco dropped by this AM to extend this invitation for anyone supporting marriage equality:
The Irvine PR company that runs the “Yes on 8” media campaign is holding an Open House on:

Thursday, August 14th, 2008
5:30 p.m - 8:30 p.m.

2020 Main Street
Irvine, CA 92614

All those opposed to Prop 8 are invited to attend and/or rally at 2020 Main on August 14th.

Details here:

Or here:

And here:
Mormons and other misogynists from outside the State of California are attempting to influence the vote on this issue. Folks, seeing two people who love each other able to attain universal recognition of their love by getting married is hella better in our eyes than watching Oldy McMoldy pimp his wife to a crowd of drunk bikers.

Those who tout the heterosexual marriage as a symbol of their "family values" might show a little more respect for the institution itself and a little less hatred of other folks' desire to legitimize (and gain all the advantages of) their love. We refer you to such eminent proponents of heterosexual marriage as Newt Gingrich (multiple affairs while married; dumped one wife while she was in hospital battling cancer; multiple divorces and remarriages); John McCain (multiple liaisons with various women while married to first wife, including ongoing affair with a woman two decades younger; divorced first wife to marry wealthy "sugar mommy"); and this fine list of "family values" Republicans whose "peccadilloes" are too numerous and extreme to list at this modest blog.

We don't even want to discuss the Baptist minister who was discovered hogtied and asphyxiated while his family was away at some "family values" camp.
