Here's A Protest Sign For Ya !!!

Proposition 8 backer Galina Andreyev, left, of Sacramento argues with George Cole of San Francisco
outside the California Supreme Court, which heard arguments Thursday on the constitutional change
approved by voters last November that defines marriage as between a man and a woman. A decision is
expected within 90 days.

I was at a rally last night, as a PFLAGer (Parents, Family, Friends of Lesbians and Gays - www.pflag.org ), and there were some good ones.

3. Did God the Father NOT-love Saint Joseph? Note also, the way this sign is layed out!
Somebody KNOWS what s/he is doing with this particular visual medium.

8. For those who don't live in CA
The newly arrived Russian Christians are the worst of the lot when it comes to right-wing religious activity. They are very active, very right wing, and very dangerous.

25. Yes, the ones in the US tend to be hard-bitten Protestants...
of one or another flavor -- they're sponsored heavily by their brethren in the US in their efforts to immigrate. Reagan got the ball rolling by pushing for them to be able to come to the US on grounds of religious persecution, and of course the current regime in Moscow is none too sweet toward sects other than Russian Orthodox.

Loved the sign, by the way. I'm an atheist, but it doesn't pay to be so earnest as not to be able to have some fun.

12. Now that's theology!
:D

.. Then Mary spoke to Joseph, so meek and so mild, "Joseph, gather me some cherries, for I am with Child."
Joseph flew in anger, in anger flew he, "Let the father of the baby gather cherries for thee" ..
The cherry tree bowed low down, bowed low down to the ground, and Mary gathered cherries while Joseph stood around ..

39. If the men had more than one wife, the children had more than one mom.
It's really quite a simple concept.

32. Sorry, sign is badly designed.
There goes the stereotype that gays are automatically good at design. (Probably a good thing, too.)

If they had done it without cramming the type together in weird ways, like it was a 60's acid-head poster, it would work; it's a great slogan. But the design makes it hard to read.

34. Post #3 Apparently Disagrees...
Me too, BTW.

Plus... what do you have against "60's acid-head posters"???



Some of the best modern art on the planet.

40. This isn't art, dammit. This is communication.
Getting the message means making the sign recognizable in ONE SECOND. If it gets too hard to read (and that sign took a good five seconds to read) people will give up and the message will go unheard.

In fact, that represents exactly the problem with Democrats. They are more interested in expressing their message in a pretty form, and getting praise for their artistry, rather than actually getting their message to the people. THIS is a sign that communicates quickly and effectively (and I even hesitate at the Old Latin type at the head but it's at least a little stylish):

42. Um... Did You Happen To Check Out The Girl Holding The Sign ???
I doubt she is some Democratic Operative trying to enthrall the masses with her Utilitarian message.

Rather... it could be that the signs she holds is far more personal than you or I could ever know.

Either way... I think it's absolutely beautiful!

Plus... I like art... so sue me.

43. I love the body language in that picture.
The woman on the "stop teh gays" side has that "you will do what *I* say or else" quality - almost physically going at him - force. The guy talking to her from the equal rights side is animated but centered, there's no force about it.

IMHO the body language alone in this picture describes both sides of this debate perfectly. Prop 8 proponents have the goal of forcing others to live their private lives by their rules. Those fighting it just want to be be who they are to live their own lives in peace.
