Prop. 8 Opponents Throw Bricks at Elderly and Attack Churches

I heard on EWTN Radio that opponents of Prop. 8 are defacing churches.


Opponents of Traditional Marriage Engage in More Dirty Tricks; Supporters Create a YouTube Video
SACRAMENTO, October 17 /Christian Newswire/ -- Thefts, vandalism, and harassment of Prop. 8 supporters continues. Some enthusiastic volunteers for Prop. 8 have created a YouTube video of signs defaced and mangled by No on 8 forces, even though the No on 8 campaign claims to be one of tolerance: v=OjkKqjkq1r4.

Many opponents of Prop. 8 are stealing only the plastic bags that slip over the metal frames for the signs. Because so many Yes on 8 signs have been stolen, has had to order 50,000 plastic bags to replace ones that have been stolen.

• During the night someone took down a supporters' Yes on 8 yard sign and tacked the sign up by the front door, and defaced it. Similar messages were written on their sidewalk. Police were notified and a police report was filed.

Huntington Beach / Fountain Valley
• Numerous Yes on 8 signs have been slashed, torn, ripped, defaced, and stolen. At least two Prop. 8 supporters have created enclosed plexiglass frames (with 6-foot deep 4x4 anchors) to enclose and secure their frames.

Yorba Linda
• 200 signs were posted over this last weekend in one neighborhood, and now only 10% are left.

• A Yes on 8 sign was defaced with writing: "no…gay pride west Hollywood."

Santa Monica
• On Sunday a Yes on 8 bumper sticker was put on a supporters car, and on Tuesday while they were in a local store for only 2-5 minutes someone vandalized their car, peeled off the bumper sticker and then keyed the entire length of their car.

La Mirada
• Yes on 8 supporters have put signs in their yard three different times and two of them have been stolen. The same supporters received permission from businesses to put up about 100 signs, which were stolen within 2 two days.

• Bakersfield
A tenant placed Yes on 8 signs in the front yard of the apartments, amongst No on 8 signs. The Yes signs were ripped up and thrown in the dumpster.

• Supporters of Prop. 8 are victims of having bricks thrown. A brick was thrown through the front window of an elderly couple's home, as well as through the front window of a car.

Chula Vista
• Three arrests were made Monday evening when three men were caught stealing Yes on 8 signs.

Imperial Beach
• Yes on 8 sign was defaced with the word "bigot."

Yuba City
• A Yes on 8 supporter put sign up on Saturday; it was gone by Sunday. She replaced it on Sunday; it was gone by Tuesday. Neighbors with Yes on 8 signs had them stolen as well.

• A San Jose woman who is a supporter of Prop. 8, and drives 100 miles every day for work has witnessed an orchestrated effort to remove and destroy Yes on 8 signs throughout the South Bay, and East Bay.

• A Prop. 8 supporter reported all fifteen signs taken down from their residence; other signs were reported stolen from the area.

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N. (Person, place or thing) under the protectio

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b

Bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx "Exemption" Letter & Stated: "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary"

Today, the bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx " exemption" letter (21_8_Vaccine_Exemption_CCC_Fin...docx(20KB)) and stated that "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary":  COLORADO CATHOLIC CONFERENCE 1535 Logan Street | Denver, CO 80203-1913 303-894-8808 |   [Date]   To Whom It May Concern, [Name] is a baptized Catholic seeking a religious exemption from an immunization requirement. This letter explains how the Catholic Church’s teachings may lead individual Catholics, including [name], to decline certain vaccines. The Catholic Church teaches that a person may be required to refuse a medical intervention, including a vaccination, if his or her conscience comes to this judgment. While the Catholic Church does not prohibit the use of most vaccines, and generally encourages them to safeguard personal and public health, the following authoritative Church teachings demonstrate the principled religious
