Gay tolerance in San Diego

According to The Associated Press,

A pastor leading efforts to pass a ballot initiative that would end same-sex marriage" in California says the campaign has become the target of vandalism and violence.

Rev. Jim Garlow says signs urging a "Yes" vote on Proposition 8 are being stolen, churches have been pelted with eggs, cars have been parked outside the homes of supporters bearing the message "Bigots live here," and some supporters have been physically assaulted. Garlow says a pastor even had the windows of his car shot out because he was displaying a "Yes on 8" sticker. "One man in Modesto was beaten as he was handing out 'Yes on 8' signs, and had stitches in his eye," he adds.

Unless they approve of these threats to freedom of speech, I think the major homosexual groups in America really need to issue strong condemnations of this behavior. For some gay rights activists, "tolerance" just means tolerance for their views.
