Living in the Age of (In)Tolerance

leave a comment »

As you are likely aware, voters in the states of California, Arizona, and Florida voted last week to amend their state constitutions in defense of marriage as between one man and one woman.  Leading up to that, those opposed to those measures lashed out by vandalizing personal propertyfiling frivolous lawsuits, and even physically assaulting senior supporters of the marriage protection amendments.

Just before election day, the following video was launched against the Church of Jesus Christ and Latter Day Saints (who, without their help, Prop 8 would have likely failed):

How tolerant.  To our friends in the LDS church, thank you for your gracious stand for marriage.  Be encouraged.

Now that the election is over, things are far from quiet.  Three lawsuits have been filed in an attempt to undue the democratic process.  And, last of all, the blogs of same-sex “marriage” proponents keep demonstrating their commitment to (in)tolerance.



Decisions by voters in Florida, Arizona and California to join residents of 27 other states with constitutional protections for traditional marriage have prompted threats of violence against Christians and their churches.

“Burn their f—ing churches to the ground, and then tax the charred timbers,” wrote “World O Jeff” on the JoeMyGod blogspot today within hours of California officials declaring Proposition 8 had been approved by a margin of 52 percent to 48 percent. Confirmation on voter approval of amendments in Florida and Arizona came earlier.

On a blog website, “Tread” wrote, “I hope the No on 8 people have a long list and long knives.”

Another contributor to the JoeMyGod website said, “While financially I supported the Vote No, and was vocal to everyone and anyone who would listen, I have never considered being a violent radical extremist for our equal rights. But now I think maybe I should consider becoming one. Perhaps that is the only thing that will affect the change we so desperately need and deserve.”

A contributor identifying himself as “Joe” said, “I swear, I’d murder people with my bare hands this morning.”
