Discrimination is Un-American 

California, my birth state, was always out front, comprised of thinking, intelligent people. Homosexuality was seldom an issue. But ever since the extreme religious right

California, my birth state, was always out front, comprised of thinking, intelligent people. Homosexuality was seldom an issue. But ever since the extreme religious right started feeling their oats, feeling superior to a minority people, their ignorance and bigotry now prevails over intelligence and reason. There is little more despicable than the perceived superiority of the majority over a minority. The majority decision on gay marriage defies the equal rights guaranteed by the state constitution, and is the epitome of un-Americanism. A sad day for equal rights. Personal prejudice has no place in a state constitution, nor does prejudice of any kind. Abe Lincoln said: "Our new nation was conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal." The religious right lacks that equality based on their superiority!
