Opponents of California’s Proposition 8 have released blacklists with confidential information regarding donations in support of the ban on same-sex marriage.
Blacklists have appeared on Web sites such as AntiGayBlacklist.com, each featuring the names of people — and businesses — who apparently supported Proposition 8 before it was passed on Election Day, CBS reported Thursday.
Gay Rights, Gay Rage

The lavender blacklist?

Eugene Volokh, the UCLA law prof who supports gay marriage, once wrote that one of the key goals of the gay rights movement is to punish and marginalize people who in private life hold views they see as anti-gay. I’m working on a column for Sunday in which I discuss why it’s in the interest of prudent social conservatives and prudent gay rights activists to come to some sort of settlement that would allow for gay marriage while establishing a zone of protection of religious liberty around religious institutions, for the sake of religious freedom. But I fear that the gay rights movement isn’t interested in that — that it’s only interested in crushing its enemies. The blacklisting of the Mormon director is a very bad sign.
