Yet more on the “tolerance” of opposing views from the neutered marriage crowd:

PORTLAND – “Yes on One” political signs from Portland to Biddeford have been vandalized. The signs, advocating the repeal of a law legalizing gay marriage in Maine, are being defaced with spray-painted depictions of a cross, an equals sign, and a swastika, likening religious opposition to gay marriage to Nazism.

In a statement regarding the vandalism, Scott Fish, spokesman for the Yes on One campaign, said: “Given the consistent awful rhetoric of the No on One campaign, it is no surprise their supporters are acting in awful ways.”

    You should think long and hard about that quote.

      Noel,
      The intimation you’re making is misplaced. I care about everyone’s rights. Everyone can and ought to have the same rights, ….INCLUDING the right to free speech. Unfortunately, as much as you’d like this fight to be about rights, it isn’t.

      Personal F, that is a great example of the lack of tolerance from gay activists. Taking laws that are meant to curb corruption from businesses and applying those laws to forcing the disclosure of private information and addresses of small personal donors is a tactic that gay activists have exploited to great advantage in the past.

      During proposition 8, gay activists took advantage of mandatory reporting data, feeding those names into google maps to target individuals for harassment. Names, addresses and amounts donated are still posted online for anyone to abuse. Ironically, the creator of the H8 maps remains anonymous. He values his own privacy, while exploiting the privacy of others. Were the roles reversed, I doubt you would be so unconcerned.
