First of all, the little old lady was hardly "beat down". She wasn't assaulted. Her cross was. I'm not saying what they did was right, but let's
not exagerrate the actions by speaking as if they physically attacked her, because it simply didn't happen.
To the person appaulled by the man saying "We should fight...", he wasn't speaking to the woman and inferring he and she should fight. He was
saying that all of the people against Prop 8 should fight for what they believe is right.
As for the attack of the cross itself, two points, 1, YOU CHOOSE to be offended by a cross being stomped on, or by a flag being burned. You choose
your response to other people's actions. You do not have to be offended. 2. Just because you hold something "sacred" doesn't mean anyone else
must. No one MUST respect your religion or your beliefs, just like YOU don't have to respect the belief that Homosexuals should be allowed to be
married. How dare you demand respect for your belief while not showing the same respect to someone elses. Hey, isn't that EXACTLY what infowars was
saying about this "attack".
The road goes both ways, and it's REALLY very simple, if people would just get the hell over people being gay, there wouldn't be this problem. Stop
being offended by what they do behind closed doors. Shoot, there are some straight married people who are WAY kinkier than whatever your mind cooks up
about what "the gays" do with eachother. Mind your own business, take care of you and yours, and leave them alone, then these protests won't even
be taking place.
Lastly, there are plenty of Christian churches that 100% support gay marriage. There are religious people who believe you should just let them be, and
let God take care of it. The people, like this woman, waiving her cross around to antagonize, and to (without words) call these people sinners, are a
disgrace to Christianity.
Do unto others as you would have done to you...
