"Disgusting, homophobic bigotry...." You resort to demonizing and marginalizing those who disagree with you based on religious belief. Man's definitions will never supplant what the Word of God has deemed good, righteous and holy in terms of marriage.....one man and one woman.

Legislating "gay marriage" will allow the next step of entering into sanctuarys to accuse preaching of homosexuality as sin as a "hate crime." Shrewd as a serpent. The real fight is against God. No amount of twisting arms in govt. and interpretation of scripture will prevail in that fight.

Here is where the most beautiful of American cities was founded -- not by 49ers, beatniks, hippies or homosexuals, but by devout and dedicated Spanish Franciscans who crossed half the world to bring their faith to a new land.

Mission Dolores is not just the heart of San Francisco, she symbolizes its soul. The Franciscans founded the mission...
