SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 14 (UPI) -- Opponents of California's Proposition 8 have released blacklists with confidential information regarding donations in support of the ban on same-sex marriage.
Blacklists have appeared on Web sites such as AntiGayBlacklist.com, each featuring the names of people -- and businesses -- who apparently supported Proposition 8 before it was passed on Election Day, CBS reported Thursday.
The release of the blacklists comes as a number of California businesses have been targeted by same-sex marriage advocates for boycotts in the wake of the initiative's passing.
Some people have argued the presence of the blacklists goes against the very nature of the United States and say the lists should be removed.
"I understand the anger, but I think we need to channel it," Molly McKay of Marriage Equality USA told CBS. "Into conversations, into moving forward because, you know again, hate vs. hate produces more hate."
I was completely disgusted," engineer Chris Lee, whose name is featured in one of the lists, said. "This sort of blacklist should only appear in communist countries, should not be found in the United States."
