There is simply no explanation other than pure unadulterated hate

I cannot wrap my arms around the unbelievable cruelty of the Religious Right. They have shown their hand with this next move in their quest to crush any semblance of equality or dignity in California's gay and lesbian community. And it confirms for me (what I already knew) that it was never about the Sanctity of Marriage, because if it had been, these sanctimonious frauds would have gone after what really truly destroys marriage, divorce, instead of gays and lesbians. And if protecting the institution of marriage was really their goal, they would started their enormous task of ending divorce not in California, but in the states with the highest divorce rate: the Bible-belt states. But alas, they've exposed their true motivations and it certainly has nothing to do with their concern for the very sorry state of heterosexual marriage, and everything to do with the pure unadulterated hate within their stone-cold shriveled hearts:

The sponsors of Proposition 8 on Friday argued for the first time that the court should undo the marriages of the estimated 18,000 same-sex couples who exchanged vows before voters banned gay marriage at the ballot box last month.

The Yes on 8 campaign filed a brief telling the court that because the new law holds that only marriages between a man and a woman are recognized or valid in California, the state can no longer recognize the existing same-sex unions.

"Proposition 8's brevity is matched by its clarity. There are no conditional clauses, exceptions, exemptions or exclusions," reads the brief co-written by Kenneth Starr, dean of Pepperdine University's law school and the former independent counsel who investigated President Bill Clinton.

May names like James Dobson, Rick Warren, and Tony Perkins (to name just a few) be forever enshrined in history books as the notorious, hate-filled bigots they are. Share
