Meridian Magazine has an article up by a veteran LDS pollster likening the upcoming battle over Prop 8, the proposed marriage amendment, to the War in Heaven. This takes demonizing one's opponent to a new level. I'd be tempted to call the article a new low for Meridian Mag.
If I were voting in California I would vote "Yes" on Prop 8, but I'm at least willing to grant there are reasonable arguments on both sides of the debate and that most of those who oppose it are decent human beings. And I honestly think suggesting that Lucifer is the chief strategist for the opposition is likely to drive fence-sitters to the opposing camp. No one who sounds like the Church Lady is going to win a public policy debate in the California of 2008.
Another problem is that even the parody version of the opposing argument sounds pretty reasonable. Here's the Satanic take on equality, for example:
Gays and lesbians are people, too. They have the same emotions as anyone else. It is only fair that they be given equal rights. They should not be second-class citizens.
Comments welcome, but a special warning to those nefarious blogging imps of the infernal adversary -- Begone! Then there are those wolves in sheep's clothing, people arguing for God's Proposition but making such dumb arguments they push people the wrong way. Then there are those pseudo-intellectuals who overanalyze the issues using devilishly tricky ideas. Wow, how can anyone who participates in this debate survive the piercing gaze of the Church Lady?
