Great commentary. I wonder how much good could have been done with the money invested in promoting Proposition 8.
It is very sad to see those who ought to be decent Christian folk being, well: Not.

Thanks for your response. It means the world to me as does your question.
While the gross numbers are still being counted, it seems that the LDS Church spent over 30-million and the total for all Prop 8 supporters will exceed 80-million.
Could anything be sadder? It just breaks my heart. SB

Thanks for posting that. I saw it last night, and it almost made me weep. Nice to see some heteros saying these things!
But in a very ironic way, it seems as if Prop 8 is exactly the kick in the pants the LGBT movement needs, to fight for our marriage rights, to reach out to persons of color and remember that the face of gay America isn't just white, and to reach out to people of faith - remind them to do unto others and show them all the vocal gay preachers, ministers, rabbis and worshipers. Yes, big money from LDS and the Catholic Church helped this thing to win, but just as I commented on another blog, it's still amazing how much they poured into getting it passed, and how poorly run the No on 8 campaign was, and yet Prop 8 ONLY passed by a million or so votes. Heartbreakingly close, but had No on 8 run a better campaign, who knows? Prop 8 might've failed. Here's hoping for the future.
