Err apparent: Prop. 102 spells demise of justice

(From the Tucson Citizen.)

John and Joe were partners for 40-plus years. Their Victorian mansion was in Joe's name. They had worked together to buy and restore it, and both paid for the gorgeous antiques to furnish it.

Then Joe died. His good Christian family, who had not spoken to him for 40 years because the homosexual was an embarrassment, suddenly showed up to claim everything.

John was given an eviction notice and told he could take only his clothes and what he proved he paid for himself.

The poor man lost not only his partner, but also everything else. I thought the commandment read, "Thou shalt not steal." I didn't realize it said, "Thou shalt not steal unless it's from a gay."

This will continue if you vote "yes" on Prop. 102.
