    or more simply

    "Do to others as you would have them do to you."
    - Luke 6:31
    I am familiar with the rule, it existed before the bible did....
    There is also the rule as given by Christ himself, render unto Caesar, meaning we are subject to rulers and laws.
    Again, I would have voted against it, had I been a citizen of CA, but the fact that the majority of citizens are dead set against it remains. It is possible that the supreme court, of CA, will overturn the results, or the SCOTUS may someday override all the states. But not getting your way in a vote doesn't mean you get to call the winners bigoted, or haters, or protest against the groups who oppose you. the LDS are only about 2% of CA, so their votes and their financial contributions are only a small part of the opposition. Of course the gay communities, just like the mainstream "christians", will vent toward whomever it is permissible to hate. It is no longer acceptable to openly hate blacks, browns, jews and catholics, but the mormons are still fair game. Guess they have to take their turn as targets for the hatred of bigots, just like the gays will have to take their turn getting accepted like the blacks, browns, jews and catholics.

    Those whom voted in favor are homophobes. They think that gay marriage is going to somehow impede on their lives - how?
    There is no rational assessment that gay marriage would interfere or impede on the lives of anyone else except their own - precisely what they wish to do.
    The courts had already demonstrated that the whole thing was unconstitutional. And in revocation of their right, the homophobic community votes against gays.
    In particular that the black community voted in favor of this measure adds to the utter irony. It's almost as if, yeah we were treated unfairly and it was wrong, but it's fine to treat you with bigoted inequality of separate but equal - hypocrites.

    people are peculiar....they vote emotionally, not logically.
    and if they don't get their way, they react emotionally as well..

    Everyone that had ever stood for equal rights before, during and after the civil rights movement and voted for this proposition ought to be ashamed - those who had not voted ought be ashamed of these people.
    I don't care what your race, your faith, age or sex is, if you supported this measure to revoke their rights you are a homophobic bigot.

    and if you are out vandalizing LDS churches because the majority of the voters didn't let you have your way, what kind of bigot is that???

    Bottom line all ratings are available to women in the USN........

    Its amazing how intolerant people on the left are and how they resort to the same old name calling with people that disagree with them.......

    What I said was 100% accurate, I need not try again. All JOBS available to men are not available to women in the military. Thus, their choices are restricted. Restricted choices is not better.
