Maine – The 31st “Hate State”

When will the hatred end?

In the aftermath of the vote that made homosexual marriage illegal in the state of Maine, the hatred can be felt from coast-to-coast. For instance, consider this quote from election night:

In a defiant speech to several hundred lingering supporters, ‘No on 1’ campaign manager Jesse Connolly pledged that his side “will not quit until we know where every single one of these votes lives.”

I think they call that voter intimidation, but that’s nothing compared to what others have said. Check out this quote concerning the election from a San Francisco website:

After today’s profoundly disappointing news that gay marriage was repealed in the state of Maine — alas, unadulterated hate wins again — rallies will be held across the country starting tonight.

Today also marks the one year anniversary of Prop 8, California’s anti-gay marriage proposition. Sigh. But on the brighter side, as Brian Devine expertly put it, “bigots die off; it’s only a matter of time.” (Frank Schubert, campaign director of Stand for Marriage Maine, thankfully, doesn’t look like he has much life left in him to spread further pain.)

It was following the Prop 8 vote in California last year that homosexual mobs threatened churches and Christians:

“Burn their f—ing churches to the ground, and then tax the charred timbers,” wrote “World O Jeff” on the JoeMyGod blogspot today within hours of California officials declaring Proposition 8 had been approved by a margin of 52 percent to 48 percent.

On the “Queerty” website, “Stenar” asked, “Can someone in CA please go burn down the Mormon temples there, PLEASE. I mean seriously. DO IT.”

“I’m going to give them something to be f—ing scared of. … I’m a radical who is now on a mission to make them all pay for what they’ve done,” wrote “Jonathan.”

Homosexual marriage has now lost in every single state — 31 in all — in which it has been put to a popular vote. And in every case, the hatred has been obvious.

When will homosexuals stop being so hateful?
