    The only hate I have seen relating to prop 8 is from the no on 8 crowd. You guys are unbelievable. Mormons were probably less than 3% of the vote for prop 8. Kind of ironic that the no on 8 folks would choose to persecute such a small minority. Why arent they going after the blacks who voted 70% for prop 8?

    No on Hate,

    The irony of you anonymous name gets me all choked up. Mormans were responsible for the vast majority of the funding for this hateful, bigoted initiative. Religious institutions should not be permitted to insert themselves int the secular functions of the state. Marriage of same gender partners happens in a number of religious faiths. What gives any one, or group of faiths the right to dictate the religious practice of another?

    The marriage of same gender couples is no more a threat to the marriage of heterosexual couples than the divorce of heterosexual couples.

    I don’t know what to say ……First of all I voted No on Prop 8. I am a Mormon and there are Mormons like me that also voted No on Prop 8. We support the cause and are not happy with what is going on. I am very unhappy that my Temples is be target.

    Yes, you have the right to boycott any place you like. The only thing we ask is please respect our Temples. You might need us someday again. Lets work together.

    Thank you,
    Dot De Leon

    Maybe only 3% of the vote, but it was the massive cash inflow to Yes on 8 that is the problem.

    You are correct. As I wrote in another post:

    On the matter of violence, vandalism, and alleged acts of domestic terrorism, it is important to respond with a very clear and simple statement. Under no circumstance is an act of violance, terrorist threat, or vandalism appropriate on either side of this issue. Such actions are carried out by thugs, who have no regard for rules of a civil society. I have not met any leader on either side, who condones such acts.
