Nov. 6: Demonstrators protest the ban on gay marriage in California.

An elderly woman bearing a cross who attended a gay marriage protest to voice her support of the California ban was attacked by demonstrators and may now press charges.
Carrying a large, Styrofoam cross, 69-year-old Phyllis Burgess showed up at a rally last Friday against Proposition 8, the ban on same-sex marriage that was passed on Election Day in California.
She was there to show her belief in traditional marriage, she said.
Within minutes, however, angry protesters swarmed around the Palm Springs resident, yanked the cross from her hands and trampled on it.
The incident was videotaped and posted on YouTube.
Now, Burgess says she might press assault charges, according to The Desert Sun.
"I guess I didn't see the gravity of the whole thing and how it was being portrayed to the public," Burgess told the paper. "People are incensed. They seem to want some kind of justice."
Palm Springs police have made no arrests yet, but said they spent time Sunday trying to convince Burgess to file charges against some of the demonstrators.

she's probably the only one that they thought they could take on. Some of those butch women are tougher than the most masculine gay guy.

It was very disturbing....they want more rights...well I see it everyone involved in that display should have their rights taken away and placed behind bars.
