A minor incident but all too typical in these campaigns:

It would be interesting to leave this sign in place as evidence of the opposition's "tolerance." Yes, indeed, vandalism is certainly something to be proud of.
I would like to point out that if the shoe was on the other foot, there would be such an outcry that the media would covering it day and night. As it is, the media is silent. Wonder why?
@Barb - gays & their supporters never had any "tolerence" for those of us who oppose their agenda.
I have a feeling this is going to get ugly, as it begins to sink in that the homosexual marriage movement is doomed at the polls and also at SCOTUS.
My Love Lies Nameless:
I love the man-woman union, and what is unique to it. I want to name that which I love. And share it with those I care about.
Try not to let religion, sexual preferences, legal advantageous and social acceptance enter this reasonable request. Simply allow me to name my love (through a commonly accepted word).
The name that had been attributed to it, marriage, has been kidnapped and done away with. And now my love lies nameless. For it is not the word marriage that I love, but the man-woman union.
This is eerily reminiscent of the when the KKK and Democrats use to intimidate blacks and civil rights supporters.
- I don't want to get “married” I want to be joined to the opposite sex (in a life long committed union).
- My dream is not for my children to be happily “married” when they grow up; but for them to be happily united to the opposite-sex.
Having a word to name something that is of such fundamental importance to many of us is reasonable and understandable. Taking away the only word from our society that did name this thing is violent. It is violent. It is unjust and unnecessary. It is oppressive.
Pride goeth before destruction. Prov 16:18
Homosexuality by definition is a perversion of what nature and God intended. That's a simple and undeniable fact.
Personally, I'd leave the sign up, with the vandalism. There is no better visual of constructive, beneficial ties of an intact family, vs. the destructive symbol of gay identity politics via. the smear of grafitti. At least folks can wake up and see what they're up against. Thanks, vandalizers--"what you do speaks so loudly, I can't hear what you say."
Vandalism is... gay 'pride which goeth before a fall."
