Obviously doing their cause more harm than good, dozens of gay rights advocates assaulted a grandmother, Phyllis Burgess, who was protesting in favor of controversial Proposition 8, the anti-gay marriage ban that passed in California last week.

The following report was published tonight by Fox News.

While the anger of pro-gay marriage advocates is understandable, brutally infringing the free-speech rights is not the way to win voters to their cause.  I am personally ashamed of what they did and hope leaders in the gay community do what they can to prevent these kinds of shocking events from taking place in the future.

It is not yet known if Burgess will press charges.

Below is a video that starts by showing gay protests after the grandmother was assaulted, and then cuts back in with video of the actual assault.
