Chronicle Says “No on 8″

Timothy Kincaid

October 1st, 2008

Well knock me down with a feather. The San Francisco Chronicle has – oh gasp, surprise – issued a recommendation to vote no on the anti-marriage amendment Proposition 8.

Proponents of Proposition 8 like to cast their campaign as “restoring marriage and protecting California children.” As we have said before, there is nothing more calming or traditional to American society than giving two people who love each other the opportunity to build a life together – raising children, sharing dreams, balancing careers, building communities.

Californians should reject Proposition 8.

Though not too shocking, the Chronicle recommendation is ever so welcome.

Also out yesterday is the rejection of the proposition by The Contra Costa Times.

They both join:

As for those newpapers in favor of Proposition 8? I hear they have the Death Valley Evangelical Weekly Handout… or they will as soon as the mimeograph machine is up and running again.

I just made a post adressing the 3 main points the yes on prop-8 people are trying to push.

And how about this! The East Valley Tribune, which is a rather conservative paper serving a very conservative area (Mesa, AZ, where a lot of the Mormon money is coming from to pass Prop 102), just came out as opposed to Prop 102!

The Oakland tribune also came out with a strong recommendation AGAINST today.

My friend witnessed a security guard vandalizing a No on Prop 8 poster on Pasadena Art Center campus. He couldn’t get his camera out on time to video tape the action, but did take a picture of the poster (http://i428.photobucket.com/albums/qq8/kennethlei/Noonprop8Vandalized.jpg). He reported the incident to the head of the security on campus. Sadly they did not take it seriously, even it was committed by a security guard. Note that the security guard appears to be strongly opposed to male same sex marriage but gets turned on by the idea of a lesbian couple. I despise these perverted people who claim that they are morally righteous beings!!
