What do you think of this Prop 8 Musical Video?
It’s a satire and I get it but it wasn’t that funny since well, they’re making fun of people like me. I’m frustrated for many reasons including the lowblows at Christians. I get the lowblows and potshots at Christians because we deserve it yada yada yada. I understand. But I get frustrated because you almost NEVER hear about the positive and good things that christians and churches do for their neighbors, cities, and such. You only read and see the bad stuff that happens with churches, pastors, and christians. And stuff like Prop 8 just widens the chasm between people. We stand behind issues without really knowing the people on the “other side.”
Well, I don’t really have the energy to share anything more. In the next week or two, I’ll attempt to articulate why I hold to a traditional view of marriage but don’t support Prop 8. That position sucks because it gets rocks thrown from both sides. But let me stop here…I’ve received enough angry emails for the week that I’m considering removing the ‘contact’ section on my blog.
Here’s the video. What do you think?
I couldn’t figure out how to embed the original video so had to get this from youtube. And FWIW, it’s funny to see Margaret Cho in this video. She’s always been a very vocal supporter of gay rights. Funny because we went to the same church as teenagers growing up in San Francisco.
This week was so intense and busy that I needed to watch this video below again to get me on track. Many of you expressed your appreciation for the video last week.
