Prop Hate



From J'adore Joey:

'We want you to pay very close attention to the faces of these people above. These are the faces of hatred. These are the faces of ignorance. These are the faces of hypocrisy, injustice and intolerance.

At an Irvine Hotel yesterday, Bob Knocke of Mission Viejo, CA, Amanda Starfield of Monrovia, CA, Jim Domen of Yorba Linda, CA and J.D. Gaddis, also of Yorba Linda, CA, celebrated as early returns came in showing the approval of a ban on Proposition 8 which calls to overturn the right that California's Supreme Court had granted gays to marry.

Currently, the proposition is at a 52% approval rate which means that it will most probably be voted into effect. We are completely stunned and utterly shocked that, in this day and age, in a state which we truly believed to be a liberal leader supporting the challenges which minorities face daily, an active motion towards inequality could be a reality.

This isn't just a major loss for the people of California, it's an incredible setback for the country as a whole which historically looks to California as a trendsetter on their own similar issues.

Read more about this travesty at Los Angeles Times, and visit No On Prop 8 to help make a change......if it's not too late.

UPDATE: A few friendly readers wrote in with contact information for the horrible Bob Knocke, Jim Domen and Amanda Starfield pictured in the above photo. Please give them a call or email them and let them know how you feel.

I'm at least hopeful that it will be contested at some point in the future.

If we can overcome racism, we can overcome homophobia.

Did you watch Countdown last night? Keith said some of the most touching things I've ever heard on a news channel. It's online - look for it... it was on Digg this morning.

Guess what? Jim Domen is an Ex-Gay

Here's the image that started it all:

Here's a letter that I received from a Pastor who thinks that I'm in favor of Prop 8. He's informing me that people have been contacting Jim Domen and they're angry.

Text of the email is below:

YORBA LINDA—Pastor Jim Domen of Rose Drive Friends Church has been the target of persecution by marriage opponents; not just him, but his girlfriend as well. Jim is one whom the Lord delivered from a life of struggle with same-sex attractions. He has been a vocal supporter of Proposition 8. He was photographed on Election night celebrating the results of Proposition 8, both he and his girlfriend. The photographs were published in The Los Angeles Times, The Orange County Register, and The Chicago Tribune. Since then, blogs were established to target both Jim AND his girlfriend for verbal persecution, particularly when it was discovered that he is an “ex-gay.”

Please email/phone Pastor Jim and offer your words of encouragement and your prayers as we stand with this dear brother of ours who is suffering persecution for our Lord’s sake.
