    Of course the left is using this for political purposes. Why else?

    I hope the next CEO they hire is a pro-gay marriage advocate who opposed Prop 8, and the traditional marriage supporters call for a widespread boycott.

    The pendulum swings both ways.

    I would say the majority of the politicians on the left use it for political purposes, but I don't think the majority of the left in general does. Hell I think the majority of politicians on BOTH the right and left in regards to causes use them simply for political purposes.

    Take off those partisan blinders. It takes two opposite political points of view to polarize any issue.

    Prop8 was a mockery of democracy. The pro-gay marriage crowed lost so they had to circumvent democracy to get their way.... Then progressives sit there and talk about democracy and voter ID laws as if they even give a **** about democracy?

    I'm not even opposed to gay marriage either - as a matter of fact I think government should stay out of marriage entirely, however that doesn't change the fact progressives showed their true totalitarian colors with Prop8.

    The best part is that the proposition was on the ballot - if banning gay marriage was illegal it should have never been on the ballot in the first place. The reality of that situation was that gays thought gay marriage would be overwhelmingly passed, however they misjudged their "popularity" and lost and then the cried foul.....Furthermore gays weren't trying to legalize gay marriage they were looking for social acceptance and the second they failed at that they went running to the courts...

    The way I view that whole Prop8 fiasco would be like a little kid losing at a game and crying "no fair" while smashing everything in sight.... It was childish at best and they needed a progressive judge to rule in favor of tyranny.

    It most certainly does have something to do with his post, but whatever.

    While, as I stated before, I think this is definitely overkill, this is different than "forcing someone out" (and we don't know exactly how that went down) because they "don't agree with your opinion" (the issue being that he actively donated money to suppress homosexuals). It's slightly more nuanced than that.

    I agree with everything you wrote here.

    I am in favor of gay marriage. I'm personally in favor of letting every adult of age get married - polygamists of legal age, siblings, etc. I really don't give a hoot who marries who or what people's bedroom preferences are. I don't scream "BIGOT" at the people who do hold the belief that marriage is between a man and a woman.

    You are so right about Prop 8. The presumption was that every single person (or at least a very healthy majority) in California felt the same as the progressives do - only to find out the very painful way that not everyone feels as they do about gay marriage. That caused the entire LGBT community and every progressive between Maine and California to have an epic meltdown and howl like a scorched cat.

    And even thought the voters of California spoke (including 7 out of 10 black Obama voters), it took some judge named Walker to decide their votes didn't count.

    All in all, the gay marriage debate has become extremely wearisome.

    Tyranny? You people are insane.

    Civil rights should not be left to the will of the masses.

    Whose civil rights are at risk?

    This seems like a thoughtful piece. Certainly has a point of view, but not frivolous.
