Pathetic and disgusting: The elections weren't all about progress.
"Proposition 8" in California passed. A change to the state constitution based on nothing other than pure bigotry and hate, conceived by religious jackasses and supported by such bottom feeders as Howard Ahmanson, Jr. (who bankrolls the Discovery Institute) and John Templeton.
Other, similar measures passed in Arizona (ban gay marriage), Arkansas (ban gay adoption), and Florida (ban gay marriage).
People are pathetic.
"Anyone can repress a woman, but you need 'dictated' scriptures to feel you're really right in repressing her. In the same way, homophobes thrive everywhere. But you must feel you've got scripture on your side to come up with the tedious 'Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve' style arguments instead of just recognising that some people are different." - Douglas Murray
