Fidelity. [Thursday, Feb. 5th, 2009|03:29 pm]
The richest girl in town.


We, the undersigned, share President Barack Obama's view that "for too long, issues of LGBT rights have been exploited by those seeking to divide us. It's time to move beyond polarization and live up to our founding promise of equality by treating all our citizens with dignity and respect."

Yet, on December 19, 2008, Ken Starr and the Prop 8 Legal Defense Fund filed legal briefs defending the constitutionality of Prop 8 and seeking to nullify the 18,000 same-sex marriages conducted between May and November of 2008.

The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in this case on March 5, 2009, with a decision expected within the next 90 days. We, the undersigned, ask that the Court invalidate Prop 8 and recognize the marriage rights of these 18,000 couples -- and all loving, committed couples in California -- under our state's constitution.

As Americans who believe in the rule of law and fundamental civil rights, we know that Ken Starr and the Prop 8 Legal Defense Fund's shameful attempt to nullify these unions will not be vindicated in the eyes of history. We know that, ultimately, love will prevail, no matter how hard they try to fight it.

Sincerely,

Your name

I signed and I'll spam my email list and my blog.

Watching those hopeful, happy faces on their wedding day was just so incredibly, incredibly painful -- knowing what they were soon to face. Wrenching.

beautiful video and sad

people who hate must not have love otherwise they would recognize it. no love for them. even if they annul these real marriages, these couples' real love will prevail. (but of course the haters should fail.)

Cried and Signed.

I saw your user name in a few places and thought you seemed interesting so I added you. I figured this would be a better place to introduce myself than the entries about your grandmother (I'm sorry for your loss btw).
