Protests over Prop. 8 move to evangelicals and The OC



The protests from same-sex marriage advocates that last week snarled traffic in West L.A. migrated over the weekend from the Mormon temple to the Orange County megachurch led by Rick Warren. About a 1,000 protested outside Saddleback and accused Warren of lying about what would happen to society if Proposition 8 failed.

While L.A. Jews voted overwhelmingly against the gay-marriage ban, evangelical Christians, like those at Saddleback, voted over-overwhelmingly for the constitutional amendment:

—84 percent of those who attend church weekly voted yes.

  —81 percent of white evangelicals voted yes.

  —65 percent of white Protestants voted yes.

  —64 percent of Catholics voted yes. Catholics accounted for 30 percent of all voters.

Man, do I feel like an outlier.
