BIG PROTEST IN HOLLYWOOD GETTING VIOLENT

Proposition 8 passing has caused a big protest in Hollywood right now (10pm Pacific time), it has gotten violent but now it is peaceful. WHY???? Do we as American people where television and the internet give so much access to every horrible and trivial thing in this world- refuse to let the gay and lesbian community get married legally?  I find this sad and comical, the gay and lesbian community consists of our teachers, neighbors, TAXPAYERS!, fashion designers, actors, musicians, politicians and friends. How can it be that "WE" welcome them to be this important in our lives but "WE" can't be decent enough to let them get married?  I was happy we voted in an African American President, now I am sad that we can't let people be committed to the person they love because of  "our" discrimination.

  • i don't live in cali, so like someone said in a group post, my answer doesn't count and is unwanted. nevertheless, it won't always be a cali prop...didn't the measure pass, but fairly close to not? apparently as many who voted for it, there were almost as many who voted against. i'm guessing it was a fair count, fair vote..looks like the people spoke. as did in ark, with the adoption ban. it was very close, as well. i was disappointed here, also..our amendment not only bans gays from adopting/being foster parents, but also cohabitating straight couples. i just don't get it...once again, a single group got the shaft..the children who need families!

  • theHairnazi, I care about your opinion, and yes, it does suck that every state has different propositions but I swear I am so sad. I am straight and I have taught my son to accept and love all people just like Jesus did. He now knows that his kindergarten teacher is gay and you know what he said? lol from the mouths of babes, he said "So .....I don't get it mom, is she bad for being gay, cause she is the most wonderful person I have ever known.........you know mom besides you". He is in 4th grade now. I LOVE THE FACT (PATTING MYSELF ON BACK) THAT I AM RAISING A BOY ALL BY MYSELF THAT LOVES ALL PEOPLE FOR HOW THEY TREAT HIM AND NOT FOR THEIR PERSONAL PREFERENCES. He does not like mean people,gang members, criminals, child molesters and drug addicts. lol I love him!

  • Gigi1969... if you are teaching your son about how jesus loves all people you need to also teach him it's in the bible that being gay IS a sin...... you can't pick and choose things out of it.....

  • "and it's true, marriage is from God not the state"

    You're god does not dictate the laws of this country. It's called seperation of chuch and state. And do we need another reminder that marriage pre-dates Christianity?
    I was sad earlier today, but after talking to my best friend on the phone who was hiding a lump in his throat because California has decided that he is not worthy of the same rights as every other consenting adult citizen, now I'm just pissed. You self-righteous homophobes have crushed the hopes of so many wonderful people that just want rights an don't affect you in any way! Gay "couples" do not stay together!?! Anon, you are bat-sh*t crazy. Straight "couples" don't stay together! Do you have any actual statistics or are you just running with your gut feeling on that one?
