Virginia is for lovers and North Carolina is for the narrow-minded, judgmental, deceptive, and manipulative…

Then what does that make California then, besides the land of fruits and nuts.

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) – A California church says “sorry” to people in North Carolina after the state passed Amendment One, recognizing marriage as only between a man and a woman.

The billboard, sponsored by the Missiongathering Christian Church in San Diego, appeared for the first time on Wednesday. The church apologizes for what it calls “the narrow-minded, judgmental, deceptive, manipulative actions of those who denied rights and equality to so many in the Name of God.” [SOURCE]

I’m sorry, how many Californians voted for Proposition 8 again? Seven plus million or 52%. What was that you were saying about North Carolinians. I guess Washington state is full of haters too then.

It really is a tired argument. Heck, it’s not really an argument at all. It’s a child who resorts to name calling when they don’t get their way or have their feeling hurt.

    So it’s not narrow-minded, judgmental, deceptive,  and manipulative to call someone in another state narrow-minded, judgmental, deceptive, and manipulative on a billboard? Got it.

    living in California, I’m not surprised at all. I get so sick of the “stop H8″ bumper stickers I see.  When I first read this though something popped in my head, as someone who lives in California and is catholic, let me say, this isn’t representative of EVERYONE (much like your prop 8 point). However, I say the same thing to parishioners and visitors to our local Latin mass when they hear the priest say something inflammatory like “God hates gays”. sigh. It sadly goes both ways.

    I lived in San Francisco when Prop 8 passed, and I plastered my house, car and children with “NO ON 8″ materials.

    But I would be pretty ticked off, if my church spent money on that billboard.

    As it was, I started boycotting Knights of Columbus functions — despite my children’s wails for those pancake breakfasts — because of all the money that organization spent to help 8 pass.

    (sigh) I am missing California right now….

    Good answer to that vacuum-skulled accusation of HA-AA-AATE! (a bit like shrieking RA-A-ACISS! when you realise you’re losing the argument) came from a member of Catholic Voices in the UK:
    The accusation of bigotry is nothing but a thought-stopping cliché: a gay man is fully entitled to marry any woman he wants to.

    The view that marriage is between a man and a woman isn’t the view of everyone, but it’s the view of the Catholic Church, and Catholics should understand that. Being a faithful Catholic means you don’t pick and choose what you’re going to adhere to, though you may struggle with it. And being homosexual isn’t a sin. Sodomy is, just as premarital sex is no matter how much it’s condoned by the populace.  The individual priest who says God hates gays is preaching against the teachings of Jesus, which is love. I’ve said all along that the push for gay marriage is not about legal unions. Gays already have those. It’s a direct and all-out attack on the Catholic Church disguised as civil rights. Marriage in the Church is a sacrament, not a simple legal contract. Funny how nobody thinks Catholics have rights, but it’s not the first time the Church has had to withstand persecution from non-believers.
