LA Times: Debunking the Myths Used by Prop 8

Posted on 21 November 2008 by admin

Clever magicians practice the art of misdirection — distracting the eyes of the audience to something attention-grabbing but irrelevant so that no one notices what the magician is really doing. Look over at that fuchsia scarf, up this sleeve, at anything besides the actual trick.

The Mormons New Friends

Posted on 18 November 2008 by admin

I’ve been reading up on some of the Mormons new friends (Focus on the Family, Family Research Council, etc) and I think that my head is going to explode.  Not only have their Prop 8 friends been on the attack with Marriott, trying to get them to remove porn from their hotel rooms, they did a swift boat on Mitt Romney early in the campaign since Romney was on the Marriott’s board from 1992 to 2001.  They later warmed up to Mitt though still tried to get out the word, through a questionable Romney quote, that Mormons are not Christians. (Hey Mormons, it’s just a word! Can’t you find something else to call yourselves?)

Remember Who Made the First Blacklist Threat

Posted on 17 November 2008 by admin

Another reminder to folks who are outraged that No on 8 is calling out people. Before the election, Bill O’Reilly asked Sonja Eddings Brown if “you guys are really going to do that?” with regards to calling out people and organizations that support equality. She slips in a a shot at AT&T while defending their plan.

Parents Object to Prop 8 Using Kids Images

Posted on 16 November 2008 by admin

This is a press conference that occurred during the campaign where the parents of the children being used in the infamous “San Francisco Field Trip” commercial by Yes on 8 object to their kids being used in the propaganda.  They explain the TRUTH: that parents were asked for permission and indeed two families did not allow their children to attend.  A principal explains more about the strength of California’s parental opt-out laws.

You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video

I’ve slowed down the video of the infamous “Palm Springs Prop 8 Cross Stomping” incident to watch it very closely and see exactly what is happening.  The original video is being circulated among our opponents to say that WE are out of control.   I think you’ll see here that the old lady, Phyliss Burgess, in this video was the one who set out to stir things up.

How the Mormons See this Fight

Posted on 15 November 2008 by admin

Mormon blogs are using this image either from the bible or book of mormon, seeing themselves valiantly standing up to the angry mob shooting arrows below.  The story talks about the arrows that all miss the good person on top, in this case holding a Yes on 8 banner, or maybe some arrows bounce off of him.  I’m pretty sure this is a book of mormon story but it’s not coming to me.  Can anyone provide the details? (Thanks to Steve Carroll for the info in comments).

Targeting Mormons Unfair?

Equality California estimates that Mormons donated as much as $20 million to Prop. 8, while the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic fraternal group, gave $1.25 million to the effort and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, $200,000.
