Attention H8ers!

This kills me.  I mean, I utterly, completely fail to understand the logic behind the argument that just because Proposition 8 was passed by a thin majority that the hate filled religious right is all pissed off that the voters don't count!  So, here's the deal, the Constitution, you remember that document right?  The document that all the religious right folks like to wrap around themselves like it was an American Flag?  The Constitution has this lovely feature called Checks and Balances.  One of those balances is that judges are appointed by ELECTED politicians.  So, in essence, your vote does have a direct effect on who gets appointed to the courts.  The Constitution also has checks.  This means that those same judges, appointed by your voted representatives, have the ability to decide whether or not a passed law, whether directly by the people, or by those that you ELECTED to represent you in state houses, city councils and Congress, passes muster to what the Constitution says.  Yes, you heard that right, to what the CONSTITUTION says!  I don't care how you arrange those letters in CONSTITUTION, you cannot find the word BIBLE anywhere in there.  It doesn't exist.

It should also be remembered that one of the purposes of our Constitution is to protect the rights of the minorities when the majority wishes to trample upon them.  This was an essential reason for our revolution.  Well, guess what?  Proposition 8 is a trampling of the rights of a minority and it should not, and is not, permitted under our Constitution.  If you disagree, then you disagree with the Constitution.  It is really that simple.  We (in this case you), the Religious Right, do not have the right under our Constitution to impose your hateful beliefs on a minority of the people, and I don't give a damn about what your disgusting piece of fiction called the Bible says.  Why?  Because you will not find BIBLE anywhere in the CONSTITUTION!

Oh, and by the way, do you know who appointed the judge that overturned Prop H8?  Ronald Reagan!  George H. W. Bush!  Yes!  The darlings of the Conservatives are who appointed that judge.  Who voted in Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush?  The same right wing nut jobs that are pissed off today.  How is that for sweet justice?
