’No Mob Veto’

Chuck Colson is one of the signers of a New York Times ad that stands up for the Mormons and others who voted "yes" on Proposition 8 in California:

The violence and intimidation being directed against the LDS or "Mormon" church, and other religious organizations -- and even against individual believers -- simply because they supported Proposition 8 is an outrage that must stop.

Actually, I will make a dissenting vote on this. Mormans are good citizens and while many here find their religion odd, it must be remembered that we all pay are money and take are chance about such things and sometimes it feels easier to know how to behave then how to believe. I do think they seem to get a bad rap from-everyone-and rather unfairly.
Nontheless it must equally be remembered that our opponents think they have been deprived of an inherant right. Many here will find that an odd form of right, I do myself. But the fact is that they think it so and are rather indignant about it. I have just been in a rather tense net-battle at Steve Jackson Games on the subject("Lets save the PHC") From their point of view it looks remarkably like trying to enter the kitchen without feeling the heat. And there are few things I find more irritating when it comes from the other side.
So might I suggest that each side pack up it's own wounded and withdraw and talk less about violated rights and bigotry and that sort of thing? It has been a nasty election and one that looks suspiciously like an Afghan tribe feud with insults instead of bullets. Why not let the matter rest? We are all perhaps a little bit of bigots, them and us, but we are all also loyal to are respective factions and the whole thing hurt more then a little for everyone.
