"Yes on 8" victors growing impatient with gay marriage demonstrators

By Darnell Washington, Newsophile Staff Writer

SACRAMENTO, CA -- According to Chip White, a spokesman for the victorious Yes on 8 campaign on November 4th in California, the proponents of the measure to restrict marriage in California to one man and one woman are growing increasingly frustrated with the daily demonstrations throughout the state from the losing side.

"We just don't get it," White told the Sacramento Bee on Sunday. "The citizens of California voted twice on this issue. Game over. The majority just doesn't care about your supposed rights at this time, and that's how it works in this country. Grow up and move on."

Rick Warren, best-selling author and pastor of the mega-church Saddleback in Orange County, echoed those views and agrees his congregation is equally frustrated. "Why can't the No on 8 folks just sit back and shut up just like women, blacks, Mexicans, Jews and the disabled did for centuries before society decided it was time to protect their rights?" he said to an applauding audience at his church Sunday morning. "You'll get equality when we say it's time, and not a moment sooner! Perhaps you should listen to the words of Jesus, who regularly preached patience."

For now, Warren says there are more immediate concerns facing his church and all Christians worldwide, such as preparing for the upcoming End of Days and the Rapture. "We're ready to die and ascend to heaven. Compared to that priority, what else matters?"
