In her latest column, The insane rage of the same-sex marriage mob, Michelle Malkin makes pretty much the same point I’ve been making for nearly two weeks now:Â “Instead of introspection and self-criticism, however, the sore losers who opposed Prop. 8 have responded with threats, fists, and blacklists.”
She details some of the antics, even providing the video evidence.Â So, just read (and watch) the whole thing.
As I’ve been following Michelle’s coverage of the rallies, a thought about her readers occurred to me.Â I wondered if some delight in the juvenile behavior of gays as it makes it easier for them to dismiss the legitimacy of the case for state recognition of same-sex marriage.
While they might get some satisfaction from reading about the rallies, I find them embarrassing.Â They do not present our community in the best light.Â When I see friends who have assumed the responsibilities of marriage, building a home together and looking out for each other, or, in one case, helping a partner overcome his alcohol problem, then raising a child together, I wish they–and not the screaming activists–were the face of our movement.
We might make more headway if they were.
