“They (Prop 8 proponents) are simply lying to you.
They will do whatever it takes.
Thank you Knights of Columbus.
Thank you to the (Roman Catholic) Church for funding.
Who knows what the next Proposition 8 is?
Is there an initiative to take the rights away from people of different races who have the audacity to get married?
What would stop someone from doing that?
Nothing.
Will we have a Proposition 9 next year?

– San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom

WILL INTER-RACIAL MARRIAGE BAN BE NEXT

We behave better.

It’s what distinguishes San Francisco from the American nation.

Intuitively, people knew from our beginning to come here.

San Francisco foreparents knew their best possible shot to live in America resonated with our first-rate welcoming assurance that nothing startles our horses.

No Jew in San Francisco ever was prevented from seeking elected office, when all other major American cities legally banned their Jews from elective office.

Indeed, wiith our more than 140 languages spoken in San Francisco, and their unique cultures, no African American, no LGBT person, no one of any culture second-rated elsewhere can step into San Francisco today without acknowledging this town is decades ahead of American gut-acceptance of distinctiveness as precious and inconsequential.

“It really has to be said — we are all the same,” our woman of color District Attorney Kamala Harris last week punctuated a No on California Proposition 8 press conference.

NO ON PROPOSITION 8

Proposition 8, being voted on today, will eliminate the right to marry, granted by the California Supreme Court to same-sex couples, if a majority of California voters affirm the measure.

Marriage rights granted by the Supreme Court stand a cliffhanger chance for elimination today by voters pulpit bullied into fearing a them or us showdown on mother’s knee religion, their families, their children.

San Franciscans see marriage equality as nourishing the family unit, and we get it that same-sex marriage rights granted by the Supreme Court have no impact on or power over traditional marriage.

AND THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE

However, some Yes on Prop 8 Protestant, Roman Catholic, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon) hierarchies made it clear they will lie to hold dominion.

“They will say anything to win knowing full well that is a lie,” admonished Mayor Newsom during the Plumbers Union Hall press conference.

“I just drove in listening to the radio and the other side saying we are going to change the textbooks and change the teachings in our public schools.

“Don’t take my word for it — take the word of the superintendent of schools, and every school professional and every independent analysis.

“They (Prop 8 proponents) are simply lying to you. They will do whatever it takes.

“Thank you Knights of Columbus. Thank you to the (Roman Catholic) Church for funding that ad.

Wrong in every count and they’ll spend apparently whatever it takes to win,” Newsom insisted.

So be it from the dominion knucklers who cannot free themselves from plagarizing The Torah with unending “New” stampings.

CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER DAY SAINTS
ENFORCEMENT DIVISION

Bone weary from work today, voters who don’t knuckle may return home to learn the presidential race already has been called by national media — and choose the merciful easy chair over going out again to vote.

Every California family has been touched by hard times, especially during 2008 when all social strata were shaken by the financial crisis, the threat to civil rights, the intensified federal contempt for social programs.

And the war bleeds every Californian.

Rather than rising from that easy chair to one more laborious task, you may not go to the ballot box.

The Sentinel begs you to vote, begs your numbers will overwhelm the knucklers.
