Where are the hate-crime cops when religious conservatives need them?

There is so much hate being display from opponents of Proposition 8. Their New Motto is H-8, which is pronounced: "h-eight" (hate).

There are many of us who passionately opposed Obama, but you don't see us protesting in the streets, bullying Obamacrats, making a blacklist, or crying "unfair." No, we are submitting to a democratic process. Just because we don't like the election outcome doesn't give us "the right" to win or to bully those who oppose us. Conservatives do not cry foul when they lose elections. They do not whine that the election was stolen, or secured through dirty campaign tricks, or otherwise illegitimately won. Instead, they ask themselves where they went wrong.

Chuck Colson wrote: "This is an outrage. What hypocrisy from those who spend all of their time preaching tolerance to the rest of us! How dare they threaten and attack political opponents? We live in a democratic country, not a banana republic ruled by thugs."

Hateful and bitter advocates of No on prop 8 have chosen to NOT accept the outcome of the general public in a democratic process. They have placed the blame upon the religious villains: the Catholics, evangelical Protestants, and especially Mormons, who allegedly are robbing the rights of American citizens by merely executing their right to vote and standing upon their moral convictions and traditional views.

Michelle Malkin states: "Activists have published on the Internet an "Anti-Gay Blacklist" of Prop. 8 donors. If the tables were turned and Prop. 8 proponents created such an enemies list, everyone in Hollywood would be screaming "McCarthyism" faster than you could count to eight." from:

I was talking to a young '20-ish' girl yesterday, she told me: "I don't think it is right that the Mormon church donated all that money to support proposition 8." Innocent mistake as all you hear from same sex marriage advocates is how the Mormons took away gay rights. - so naturally you could assume it was the Mormon Church - itself.

However, I explained that -The Mormon Church itself did NOT donate ANY money to support prop. 8. Individual people who happened to be Mormons donated - but it was their free choice. There were Mormons who also opposed the proposition and could have donated to cause against 8 as well.

Is it wrong to support a cause you believe in? We live in a free country. Hollywood, Los Angeles Times, California Nurses Association, League of Women Voters and California Teachers Association opposed prop 8 and donated heavily to oppose this measure. Why is OK for them to support a cause they believe in and not OK for others?

And what was the money that was donated to prop 8 used for? -Ads and information to educate the public about prop 8 - is that such a terrible thing? The majority of California have now spoken (twice actually). No rights or benefits are being taken away from homosexuals. But advocates for H-8continue to display hatred, here are just a few examples:

"Protesters of Proposition 8 in California (the marriage amendment) shoved aside a 69-year-old woman who was bearing a cross. They spit on her and stomped on her cross.

Prop. 8 supporter Jose Nunez, 37, was assaulted brutally while distributing yard signs to other supporters after church services at the St. Stanislaus Parish in Modesto.

In Carlsbad, Calif., a man was charged with punching his elderly neighbors over their pro-Prop. 8 signs.

Calvary Chapel Chino Hills was spray painted by vandals after they learned that the church served as an official collection point for Prop. 8 petitions.

Letters containing white powder (obviously mimicking anthrax) were sent to the Salt Lake City headquarters of the Mormon church and to a temple in Los Angeles. (Thankfully, the FBI said the substance was nontoxic.)

The 25-year artistic director of the California Musical Theatre, who also happens to be a Mormon, was muscled to resign because of his $1,000 donation to the campaign to ban gay marriage in California.

A pro-homosexual, pro-anarchy organization named Bash Back marched into the middle of a church service and flung fliers and condoms to the congregants. They also hung a banner from the balcony that featured two lesbians in provocative positions at the pulpit.

Thousands of gay-rights demonstrators stood in front of the Mormon temple in Los Angeles shouting "Mormon scum."

Religion-bashing protesters filled with hate decried the "hate" at Rick Warren's Saddleback Church in Orange County, Calif.

Vandals defaced the Calvary Chapel in Chino Hills, Calif., because church members had collected Prop. 8 petitions. One worshiper's car was keyed with the slogans "Gay sex is love" and "SEX." Another car's antenna and windshield wipers were broken.

A Los Angeles restaurant whose manager made a small donation to the Prop. 8 campaign has been besieged nightly by hordes of protesters who have disrupted business, intimidated patrons and brought employees to tears. Out of fear for their jobs and their lives, workers at El Coyote Mexican Cafe pooled together $500 to pay off the bullies.

In San Francisco, Christians evangelizing in the Castro District needed police protection after the same-sex marriage mob got physical and hounded them off the streets.

Anti-Prop. 8 boycotters are going after the left-wing Sundance Film Festival because it does business in Mormon-friendly Utah.

And lastly, the tolerance-preaching activists also have taken their anger to the blogosphere, where posts have planted ideas ranging from burning churches to storming the citadels of government until our society is forced to overturn Prop. 8. You even can find donor blacklists online. The lists include everyone who financially backed Prop. 8 -- even those who gave as little as $46 -- with the obvious objective that these individuals will be bantered and boycotted for doing so."

Chuck Norris also goes on to explain:

"The truth is that the great majority of Prop. 8 advocates are not bigots or hatemongers. They are American citizens who are following 5,000 years of human history and the belief of every major people and religion: Marriage is a sacred union between a man and a woman. Their pro-Prop. 8 votes weren't intended to deprive any group of its rights; they were safeguarding their honest convictions regarding the boundaries of marriage.

On Nov. 4, the pro-gay community obviously was flabbergasted that a state that generally leans left actually voted right when it came to holy matrimony. But that's exactly what happened; the majority of Californians -- red, yellow, black and white -- voted to define the margins of marriage as being between one man and one woman. California is the 30th state in our union to amend its constitution in doing so, joining Florida and Arizona in this election.

Like it or not, it's the law now. The people have spoken." excerpts from:

"Homosexual activists, according to Cass (Dr. Gary Cass of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission (CADC), have made it a regular practice to protest outside of California's churches, and he contends something should be done about it. "We're calling for the police to protect people of faith for standing for traditional values," he says.

In a CADC article, Cass points out the blatant media bias by liberal news outlets. He believes, if the tables were turned and Christians were vandalizing the property of and physically assaulting homosexuals, "we would never hear the end of it in the media." He notes because the victims are Christians and not homosexuals, the pro-homosexual media covers it up.

Cass admits he wonders why the incidents have not been called hate crimes. "Had the same level of violence and rhetoric been directed toward homosexuals or their groups, there would be accusations of hate crimes," he suggests.

Cass is asking people to go to the CADC website and sign a petition that will be submitted to appropriate authorities." excerpts from:
