Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You're lawyer friend is an arse. I don't accept buyer's remorse over removing other people's rights. He's a lawyer, he knew what he was doing and he decided to remove from a whole bunch of americans a right he takes for granted. He has voted to create a second class of citizenship. Will he vote for laws to ban marriage between the races too ? Filth ! Scum !! Trash !!

And the weak and pathetic idea that he's gonna canvass afterwards to undo the damage. Sorry, you drop a vase  it doesn't matter how hard you stick it back together, it'll still be cracked. No matter what he does about gay right to marriage after he's taken it away an awful lot of people are gonna have something that really matters to them taken away, wedding vows that had desperate resonance will be undone at the flick of some selfish religious wankers stroke of a pen. People will leave the sate to move to places where they're welcome and accepted and their full rights as Americans are inviolate.

Most gay websites admit that if Prop 8 succeeds it's likely to be a generational defeat. It won't be back for at least a decade, probably much more. Too expensive, the activists will never be so committed and there will never be a liberal tide as high as this again. Utah will have gay marriage before California if Prop 8 wins.

That's what your scumbag lawyer friend has contributed to. I'm glad Del Martin didn't live to see the smug self-satisfed grin on your friend's face and instead died in her wife's arms.

keep to the Fen Causeway
