  •  Here are the facts. (0+ / 0-)

    Judaism for the most part believes homosexuality is against nature.  You are correct that not all branches are as concerned over gay marriage, but most all have strong reservations.  I used that example, and many others, to point out the bigger problem.  We need educate the populace instead of spending all the powder on one group (despite their large financial backing of prop 8).  The reason?  It looks like a fight between GBLT and Mormons, and does nothing to educate everyone as to WHY prop 8 was wrong.  There are so many people out there that have no clue that its unconstitutional.  I understand the outrage towards the LDS church, but a majority of the voters that voted for prop 8 were not Mormons.  Those voters need to be educated.

    If you look at what has been covered in the media, almost none of it is educational (partly the medias fault of course).  It's the gays against the Mormons.  That is what needs to change.  I'm not sure how to do it, but the current strategy seems to be rather short sighted in my opinion.
