Boone compared the Proposition 8 opponents to Mumbai terrorists.

Are you unaware of the raging demonstrations in our streets, in front of our churches and synagogues, even spilling into these places of worship, and many of these riots turning defamatory and violent? Have you not seen the angry distorted faces of the rioters, seen their derogatory and threatening placards and signs, heard their vows to overturn the democratically expressed views of voters, no matter what it costs, no matter what was expressed at the polls? Twice?

I refer to California's Proposition 8. You haven't heard about the well-oiled campaign to find out the names of every voter and business that contributed as much as $1,000, or even much less, in support of Prop 8? You haven't heard about the announced plans to boycott, demonstrate, intimidate and threaten each one - because they dared to vote to retain marriage as between one man and one woman? You haven't seen, on the evening news, prominent entertainers and even California Gov. Schwarzenegger, urging the demonstrators on, telling them they should "never give up" until they get their way?

Assuming you have become aware of all this, let me ask you: Have you not seen the awful similarity between what happened in Mumbai and what's happening right now in our cities?

Oh, I know the homosexual "rights" demonstrations haven't reached the same level of violence, but I'm referring to the anger, the vehemence, the total disregard for law and order and the supposed rights of their fellow citizens. I'm referring to the intolerance, the hate seething in the words, faces and actions of those who didn't get their way in a democratic election, and who proclaim loudly that they will get their way, no matter what the electorate wants!

There is no way Mumbai can be compared to Proposition 8 protests. Yes, some of the protests turned violent and some of the tactics are despicable, but in a democratic society those actions have a payback of their own. It is called voting. Those actions will only further alienate voters.

Please, Mr. Boone, psychopathic thugs crawling out of their rat holes to shoot innocent men, women and children with automatic weapons is not the same as stupid Proposition 8 supporters breaking the law. If you cannot figure that out, you have not learned much about life in a free society.

Now let's return to some of your words: "I'm referring to the anger, the vehemence…I'm referring to the intolerance, the hate seething in the words."

Mr. Boone, those same words fit many of the supporters of Proposition 8 too.
