Religion and Proposition 8.
As testimony continues in the Proposition 8 case in California, opponents of the law, which makes same-sex illegal, are working to show that religious opposition was the primary force behind the law's passage.
Rather than accept that their position is discriminatory and a violation of individual rights, religious groups are claiming persecution for their beliefs. But no one is discussing what those religious beliefs have caused: imposition of religious ideology on state and federal laws, a blatant use of state law to enforce discrimination based on sexuality. From the LA Times:
The experts agreed under questioning that some churches have contributed to discrimination against gays and that religion also has been used to justify discrimination against African Americans and women.
