Prop 8 through the lens of 1 Corinthians

Mad Priest pointed us to this video, which speaks in opposition to California’s Proposition 8 and is based on 1 Corinthians 13.

The San Jose Mercury News writes:

Ratcheting up a media barrage that will spill into millions of California living rooms, proponents of a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage broadcast their first TV ads Monday, charging that permanent legalization could endanger religious freedom or change schools’ curriculum, charges whose veracity were challenged by legal experts.’s $10 million media buy puts its new pro-Proposition 8 television ad in every major media market in the state “” more markets than its chief opposition group is currently targeting.

With Prop 8 trailing in the polls, is trying to highlight the broader effects of gay rights legislation and court decisions in its specific support for a ban on same-sex marriage, a strategy that underscores the different tactics the two campaigns are using to woo undecided voters.

The anti-Prop. 8 group Equality California’s first ad, which aired last week, focuses on the effect the initiative would have on one family, featuring a gray-haired couple married for 46 years, Sam and Julia Thoron, talking about how they want all of their three children to have equal rights to marry, including their lesbian daughter.

“Please don’t eliminate that right “” for anyone’s family,” says Julia Thoron.

Mad Priest says simply: “This will get you through the day whatever is thrown your way. If it doesn’t then you are a clanging cymbal.”
