Nothing to hide?

A California pastor says marriage supporters have nothing to hide in the Proposition 8 trial, but he still doesn't think the video footage from the case should be released.
Proponents of Proposition 8 are asking the San Francisco-based Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to keep the tapes of last year's controversial trial sealed, as they fear their release would "present limitless opportunities for partisans to make one side look good and the other side look bad." They say the recordings would also give gay activists the chance to flood the Internet with biased video clips.

And even though the situation brings up privacy issues, Lou Sheldon (pictured above) of hate group Traditional Values Coalition (TVC) assures that supporters of traditional marriage have nothing to hide.

"Is marriage something the people can vote on in California? Do we have the right of petition? Is the initiative process constitutional to begin with? Therefore, if it is constitutional, then we're on solid ground," he reasons.
Well, if they 'have nothing to hide', then there's no reason at all to keep these videos a secret. Or are, as usual, the conservatives afraid of getting exposed for their hateful comments?
