The same-sex marriage advocates claim that this is their motto and we conservatives should do the same. But if you don't agree with their viewpoint - they'll ruin you and run you out of a job.
"Scott Eckern, the Sacramento theater director whose political donation in support of California's Prop. 8 ban on same-sex marriage has become a lightning rod in the debate over gay rights, resigned today. He said he wanted to protect the California Musical Theatre, his artistic home since 1984, from further controversy"
"I am disappointed that my personal convictions have cost me the opportunity to do what I love the most," Eckern, the nonprofit stage company's artistic director since 2003, said in a written statement released today by a manager from Randle's firm. Eckern did not return calls Tuesday and Wednesday. In his statement, he said he decided to resign "after prayerful consideration." He apologized "for any harm or injury" taken from his support of Prop. 8, but also affirmed his right "to act upon my belief that the traditional definition of marriage should be preserved."
"This is a highly emotional issue and the accusations that have been made against me are simply not true," he added." quoted from: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/culturemonster/2008/11/here-is-an-exce.html
