The din subsequent to the California Supreme Court decision on Proposition 8 to be issued May 26th at 10:00 a.m. may cause attention to focus on the protests, the protesters, their cause etc. and by doing so, two critical points may become lost: first, the legal decision itself, and second, and perhaps more important, how the protest or celebrations themselves fit into the broader plan of selling homosexuality to America.

The natural result is an overwhelming bias toward the pro-gay side on the part of the media, as I am sure that these two newspapers are hardly an anomaly. The media, of course, have their own agenda: readership, circulation, ratings; it's always about the money, and in this American culture, it's much more profitable to keep people inflamed and angry than to exert a little journalistic equanimity.
