Light Versus Darkness

Here's yet another bat-shit-insane anti-marriage equality video:

(Via Andrew Sullivan.)

I agree with these bigots on one thing: this is a battle of light versus darkness. They're just wrong about which side is which.

Gays and lesbians are not sick. There are no such things as evil spirits that possess people and make them homosexual. Homosexuality is present in most species of higher animals such as mammals and birds. It's exact causes are not yet well understood because genetics is extremely complicated. But it's obviously natural.

Furthermore, laws in this country are not supposed to be based on sectarian religious beliefs. If people can't come up with reasonable secular arguments for their public policy proposals, then they have no business even lobbying for them. Enacting laws based solely on a religion's teachings violates the First Amendment's Establishment Clause. Private organizations such as churches can teach whatever they want, but they must not be allowed to legislate those teachings.

The people behind this video are Christianist fanatics who want to impose their peculiar belief system on our entire country. They are dedicated and they are dangerous. They must be stopped.

Please, help stop them. Donate to assist in defeating Prop 8.
