he gross intolerance of those who demand tolerance was on display this week in Sacramento as fallout from the passage of Prop 8 – California’s gay marriage ban – continued, showing gay activists to be … what’s the word they’d use? … heterophobic.
More than 100 people gathered outside the Music Circus today to support Scott Eckern, the theater director who resigned amid controversy over his donation to support the ban on same-sex marriage.
Carrying signs that read “You Made a Circus Out of Freedom” and “A Sad Day for Sacramento Theater,” supporters from throughout the region showed up for the hastily arranged rally.
Many of those gathered say Eckern was treated unfairly.
“This is a witch-hunt,” said Lance Christensen, who says he’s a regular patron of the theater and took off work to show his support for Eckern. “This man has devoted 25 years of his life to theater in Sacramento.”
Eckern resigned from his post as artistic director of the California Musical Theater this morning after harsh reaction to news he donated $1,000 to the campaign to support Proposition 8. (SacBee, emphasis added)
What a bunch of pathetic hypocrites, demanding freedom for themselves while denying it to others. Have brown shirts become standard issue for gays now?
