More posts about Protecting Marriage:
Lisa (great analogy!)
Desi (made a tough decision)
Leslie (lives in Arizona where they are voting on a similar Proposition as Prop 8)
An amazing article about one woman's experience campaigning for Prop 8 in California, plus a good reminder to all of us to approach this with love and not anger.
And I just wanted to repeat a part of a comment I left on Desi's blog (because I probably sound all angry and what-not, when in reality, I'm not. I'm just concerned). Here's part of what I said:
I understand that gay marriage would make my gay friends and family really happy. They would be able to spend their life with a partner and feel validated. I think that's the biggest word right there --validation. They want their relationship to be recognized by everyone. But see --if they get what they want (marriage), then what will happen when religious institutions REFUSE to validate those marriages? Refuse to recognize them, even if the Law says they have to? Something will have to give, you know. And if the law says SSM is legal, than Religion is going to get the shaft, which really stinks because Freedom of Religion was the entire reason people came to this land.
*UPDATE: I just received this link from a friend. Please note that Mitt Romney, although he opposes SSM, had his hands tied once SSM was legal in MA; he had no choice but to uphold it.
