    •  sorry - but what would Obama say? (0+ / 0-)

      I'm sure he'd say something positive and supportive and non-hateful...

      more flies with honey than vinegar...

      a hateful statement like the one you suggest will not be helpful to the cause.

      maybe vent your anger somewhere less public and then be strategic - need more votes, not more hate...

      •  however, he has made an interesting point (0+ / 0-)

        Minority religious groups that want public tolerance should be tolerant. There was a time when being a Mormon was considered A Bad Thing by society as a whole, though this was thankfully past by the time I was in college.

        How long before this attitude returns?

        I suspect that it isn't going to be all that long before their political activities start biting them on their collective asses. It is difficult to contemplate their anti-social activity with respect to Prop 8 without holding their entire group in utter contempt.

        I'm managing it so far only because I know that some Mormons have the courage and decency to oppose it and for a personal reason; my best friend in college was a Mormon and I still miss her, even 36 years later.
