More on Prop 8

Prop. 8's ripple effect - Christians still persecuted
..."Bill Donohue of the Catholic League tells OneNewsNow about the latest act of vandalism -- this time in San Francisco. "Gays trashed a Catholic Church in the Castro district, which is the gay community, by putting swastikas on the church with the name of the pope and the archbishop from San Francisco," he explains. "All done to protest the church's rejection of gay marriage."

When the incidents occur, Donohue says it does no good to ask for help at city hall. "We get nothing from the public officials there, so they are at least in part to blame," he notes. "This kind of barbarism that takes place has got to end."

Donahue adds that he knows of no arrests or prosecutions so far. "I haven't seen any, and we've been monitoring this now for at least the last few years," he concludes.

He believes the lack of prosecutions simply encourages those responsible to continue committing criminal acts."

Pro-marriage supporters face threats in California
"Supporters of the ballot measure that banned same-sex "marriage" in California have filed a lawsuit seeking to block their campaign finance records from public view, saying the reports have led to the harassment of donors.

"No one should have to worry about getting a death threat because of the way he or she votes," said James Bopp, Jr., an attorney representing two groups that supported Proposition 8, Protect and the National Organization for Marriage California. "This lawsuit will protect the right of all people to help support causes they agree with, without having to worry about harassment or threats."

Businesses employing people who contributed to the Proposition 8 campaign have been threatened with boycotts, the suit said.

Supporters of the homosexual marriage ban fear the donor backlash will hurt their efforts to raise money in the future, perhaps to fight an initiative seeking to overturn the ban.

"Several donors have indicated that they will not contribute to committee plaintiffs or similar organizations in the future because of the threats and harassment directed at them as a result of their contributions...and the public disclosure of that fact," the lawsuit said...."
