I’m not one for keeping up appearances. But I’m certainly not one for acting a fool and throwing tantrums. The following would be a reason why I don’t walk around with rainbow colored memorabilia on display or have gay pride bumper stickers and decals plastered all over my car. I was perusing the internet when I came across this article about gays vilifying those who voted “yes” on prop 8. (color me obsessed with prop 8 a day late and a dollar short).
Obviously it’s not just black folks who don’t know how to act in public. I understand the frustration after prop 8 was passed. But that by no means gives you the right to slander anyone for their religious beliefs and/or upbringing. There are reports of people snatching the cross, throwing it to the ground, and stomping on it. Really? is that how we feel Gay America? God had nothing to do with the statute passed on November 4th 2008. So why do we feel justified in being so blatantly sacrilegious? And like I’ve said so many times before, how is it that we expect to be granted basic human rights when we can’t respect others rights and beliefs?
