I wonder how many of Margot Kyd's friends are divorced. Want to protect the sanctity of marriage? Ban people from getting OUT of it, not INTO it. Intolerance is unbecoming on any woman.

Matt, why are you reporting this in such a positive manner and implying that these people are some sort of heroes? You make it sound like a gaybash-a-thon on TV -- the more people that sign up, the more well-known they are, and the more money they donate, the better, right? Or are you trying to emulate the U-T, which boldly reported, on the front page above the fold, how much Doug Manchester and other well-healed haters, have donated to this shameful cause. I hope you'll start reporting on people who are doing positive, loving things for our society. They are the true heroes.

What do you expect from the Reader? Don't you know the Reader probably slips thousands of dollars to this hate group, as well as the pro-life haters? This paper is only good to pick up dog poop with.

April 11, 2008

Sounds like simple reporting to me. The donations are reported and we know where those people stand. Just like the bottom sentence of the article reports on the building height limit poll.

By reporting Ms. Kyds' leadership position in a major corporation in San Diego, the implication is that Sempra Energy and its affiliates endorse Ms. Kyds' position on this issue. I believe that her endorsement of this hateful measure does not reflect the culture at Sempra Energy and it is unfortunate that Sempra is guilty by association. The Gay Community may boycott Hoehn motors, A1 Self Storage, the Marriott and Hyatt due to financial support of this measure designed to deny equal rights to the GLBT community. The GLBT employee's and our co-workers at Sempra Energy and its affiliates do not share Ms. Kyds' support, and want to make sure the public knows that this is her personal position. I used to have great respect for Ms. Kyd and thought she was a great role model for the women of Sempra. Not any more.

April 12, 2008

To those who don't to want to see news about which Sempra employee contributed to what cause, you can always read the U-T, where there is no information about Sempra at all, other that that what a great deal Sempra's Sunrise Powerline is going to be. That should set your mind at ease.

I'd love to hear what Bible-bangers who carry the flag on this issue would say about banning post-menopausal or infertile women from getting married too, as they clearly cannot be fruitful and multiply.....unless immaculate conception is in the cards.

Procreation is a product of marriage but is by no means necessary to marriage. What is essential to traditional marriage is that the couple complement each other, anatomically and in every other way. A gay couple is certainly not the same as (and therefore not equal to) a heterosexual couple; it's as basic as that. An apple is not an orange; why does an orange want to insist it's an apple? An apple is also not better than an orange, but they are substantially different.

A marriage is not an individual right--it is instead the right of two heterosexual people to make a life together. Gays can make a life together as well, but the relationship is decidedly different in terms of its core physical and psychological essence.

Equality with respect to a great number of things are possible and desireable. Certainly hating gays because they are gays can never be acceptable. But the two kinds of relationships will never--can never--be the same.

No hate; no bigotry; no gay-bashing; and no need to appeal to religious belief. Just the cold, hard, clearly observable facts.

Facts? According to the Catholics, procreation is the reason marriage exists and they can and have refused to marry people who cannot have children. According to them, that is the fact of marriage. There are no objective facts when it comes to social conventions, which is what marriage is. There is majority opinion, there is what feels right for you, there is what you believe others should or should not be allowed to do. Think. Feel. Believe. Construing any of this as "fact" is ridiculous.

March 8, 2010

You do realize you are commenting on a thread that was posted in early 2008. :)

March 8, 2010

And jenjen, you are stating "facts" about Catholicism without citing a source. I'd be interested in seeing where you got your information, preferably a link to read the document myself.

March 8, 2010

Don't bother jenjen, CuddleFish likes to call herself a good little "Christian" then turn around and wonder if there really is such a place called Heaven. You'll have to forgive the hypocrite. :-D After all, she's doing what good "Christians" do...
