War exposes people for who they really are. All of the Christofascist mean-spirited hatred that has been demonstrated these last months: all the moralizing lies being cast as stones upon the "wicked"; all the fear-mongering by stories more incredible than urban legends; all the stories about the "Christian Right's" waning popularity; all the discoveries about the Mormon Church. Each sides' swords have been sharpened to fine points ready for another round. Money, hard work and tenacity will keep spinning until the chance for repeal comes around. And there will be a battle, to be sure. There has been no form of magnanimity from yesterday's "victors". Ask yourselves: will they ever tell gay marriage proponents that they harbour no ill feelings and that they will be non-discriminatory in all other cases except for the word "marriage"? After all, that would be "the Christian Thing To Do" and looked upon as very noble.

Don't hold your breath!

The Protect Marriage people look upon this small victory as justification for being even more aggressive: they'll feel emboldened to try their Prop 8 tactics in other states and experiment with Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont, Iowa. They're re-energized. They will never apologize for their extortion attempts. They will never retool their lying advertisments. And they will attempt to scorn, verbally mutilate and violate those 18,000 lesbians and gay men who are LEGALLY married.

And they will make martyrs of them. By feeding these "legitimates" to the proverbial lions of discrimination, the PMs will show the rest of the country just how hollow their claims of "righteousness" are.

Advice: follow the lead of people like Fred Karger of Californians Against Hate and Courage Campaign's new video.

Californians Against Hate

Fred Karger:

We will carefully monitor and take action against those who bully us and spend vast sums of money against us. Individuals and organizations who give millions of dollars to deny our full civil rights will be held accountable.

In response to the court's decision, the Courage Campaign will hit the California airwaves in the next 72 hours with a 60-second TV ad version of "Fidelity" -- the heartbreaking online video viewed by more than 1.2 million people, making it the most-watched video ever in the history of California politics.

Before clicking on to the above TV ad, watch the original one (below). Look at all those faces who almost got "divorced" by the "magnanimous" people of Protect Marriage. Then read a PM's stance HERE. You must see the other side.

After all, "It's the Christian thing to do."
