The LDS Church has filed a brief with the US Supreme Court, claiming that their involvement with Prop 8 wasn’t motivated by hatred.
“On the contrary, our members supported Proposition 8 based on sincere beliefs in the value of traditional marriage for children, families, society, and our republican form of government.
We don’t hate them! We’re just trying to protect ourselves from them!
And then they whip out a little bit of “shame on you for demeaning our bigoted beliefs”.
Only a demeaning view of religion and religious believers could dismiss our advocacy of Proposition 8 as ignorance, prejudice, or animus.”
I’d say that only a demeaning view of gay people could view their marriages and relationships as antithetical to children, families, society, and government.
People operating under a sense of religious privilege, lifted up by the unquestionable righteousness of their cause, have literally no idea how offensive their actions are. They also have no clue about how ridiculous their umbrage looks to normal people.
