Play nice guys. Please. Nothing personal.
When all is said and done more is said than done.
I guess I'm partially responsible for starting the thread, but please try to get the topic back on track. I guess there's a fine line with this subject, but it would be nice to let it run its course properly

Some people in Mississipi want to have a license plate that honors one of the leaders of the KKK.
Some people in Sourh Dakota want to make it legal to kill abortion providers
Some people in Missouri want to end child labor laws.
Some people in Texas wants to make it a law that you have to carry a gun at all times.
Some people in Georgia want women to have to prove that they actually had a miscarriage and not an abortion.
I am not passing judgement in anyone these attempted bills. I am sure some people who live in these states think these make perfect sense, just like some people in San Fran think their attempted laws make perfect sense.
It's all about perspective.

Back to the issue of the thread.
Personally, I think the guy who is starting this has some personal issues concerning his... well... his personal shortcomings, and this is how he deals with it. Some guys buy a Porsche, some guys buy certain pills off of late nite infomercials, and some guys start petitions.
BTW, just for the record, I drive a four cylinder economy car

I think some people like to do their painting with very broad brushes. Anytime you go putting "all" in front of any group of people you're going to have some over generalizations and a few ruffled feathers.
With that said, I really don't see this going anywhere. San Francisco is a rather eclectic place and does have a good number of people I don't see eye to eye with, but one thing I've always thought about that city was that folks there are somewhat open to a good amount of diversity and voting for that measure would strike me as being a bit...um...intolerant. I have a few friends in California and the last thing any of them would want to be called would be intolerant.
"This isn’t stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
It'd be even more awesome if it sunk into the Pacific.
Such a law enacted wouldn't pass Constitutional muster without a religious exception (which I didn't notice mention of in the article) since most Jews and Muslims consider circumcision a religious practice. It's not unheard of for laws to have such exceptions; most alcohol prohibitions permit even children to take Communion wine.
