When California was considering Proposition 8 which amended the California constitution to make the definition of marriage what it always was—the union of a man and a woman—gay marriage advocates responded with the “No H8” campaign featuring something called Hollywood luminaries with “No H8” written on their cheeks and their mouths covered with duct tape. The clever play on words was a lie. Gay marriage advocates are all hate, all the time.
Judge Vaughn Walker, who failed to reveal that he was in a long-term homosexual relationship, ruled that the only reason that a majority of Californians passed Proposition 8 was that they hate gays. This was same state that was among the first to award all of the legal implements of marriage in the form of “civil unions.” There couldn’t be any reason for keeping the traditional male-female definition of marriage other than hate. The only hate was coming from Judge Walker as he had the proceedings videotaped and then proceeded to illegally release them after promising not to.
Walker, through his actions, tried to further inflame the gay mob that had used publicly available donor records to the Yes on 8 campaign to harass those opposed same-sex “marriage.”
And with last week’s Supreme Court hearings on Prop. 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act, the hate, vitriol and bias targeted at supporters of traditional marriage continued. On CNN, Piers Morgan (a useless British twit) had on Suze Orman to debate Ryan T. Anderson of the Heritage Foundation and one of the co-authors of What Is Marriage?: Man and Woman: A Defense. Only Anderson didn’t get to sit at the same table as Morgan and Orman. Morgan also repeatedly invited his left-leaning studio audience to express their displeasure at Anderson’s arguments.
On Saturday, it got much worse. Pastor Rick Warren’s 27-year-old son committed suicide. In the midst of the family’s sorrow, the No H8ers unleashed the hate that burns in their hearts.
You can find, among hundreds of comments on USA TODAY’s news story on Matthew’s death, comments such as the Cincinnati poster who says, "Either there is no God, or God doesn’t listen to Rick Warren, despite all the money Rick has made off of selling false hope to desperate people." In another comment, the same poster counsels Warren to "abandon primitive superstitions and accept the universe for what it is — a place that is utterly indifferent to us."
Some rush to add pain to the Warrens’ world because, in their view, he did not show sufficient compassion for the unremitting pain suffered by gay youths rejected by parents and peers. They were outraged when Warren took a political stand for Prop 8, which overturned legal same-sex marriage in California in 2008 and is now before the U.S. Supreme Court.
Others have appointed themselves 140-character theologians in a debate over whether someone once saved can lose his or her salvation if suicide is against God’s law. These posters, rather than waiting for Judgment Day, have ruled for hell.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The gay rights movement doesn’t want tolerance, it wants acceptance. You’re not allowed to disagree with their goals or even their methods. If you do, you get the hate, vitriol and anger. The mask has slipped, but don’t expect much of the media to notice or call out the malefactors. Privately, they’re largely saying and thinking the same things.
