You may remember a while back one of those internet jokes going around, The Homosexual Agenda:
6 am Gym
8 am Breakfast…. 2 pm take over the world, etc
pretty funny stuff.
What’s not so funny is the Anti-Homosexual Agenda. The folks pouring money into passing Proposition 8 in California. I hear the Mormon church has invested heavily in their Anti-homosexual Agenda….
Back in May of this year, the California Supreme Court overturned the ban on Gay Marriage.
California Supreme Court overturns gay marriage ban

In a 4-3 decision, the justices rule that people have a fundamental ‘right to marry’ the person of their choice and that gender restrictions violate the state Constitution’s equal protection guarantee….READ THE REST OF THE ARTICLE ONLINE–>
Before the Supreme Court had even dotted the last i on their decision, “They” (who are they anyway? and what are they so afraid of?) were rallying the troops and had at the ready a ballot measure, what is now Proposition 8, which will change the constitution of the state of California so that discriminating against same sex couples– specifically denying them the right to marry– will be perfectly legitimate.
Well this Saturday I will be attending a wedding. Julie and Mirna are getting married. (Aren’t they cute!)
They are a terrific couple of women. They are both responsible, contributing, tax-paying members of society. They own their own home. They are kind and generous people.
They deserve the same rights as everyone else.
I admit I am a little biased. Julie is my best friend. But seriously, what’s the big deal? How is their getting married harming anyone else? If you have any questions, read the facts about why to vote NO on Prop 8. There is a lot of misinformation out there being spread by people that are ignorant, mean and just plain filled with fear.
It’s a shame that they feel like they need to get married NOW. In case Prop 8 passes, they hope they will be “grandfathered” in.
It’s my hope that Prop 8 fails. I wish I’d kept my California residency just long enough to vote. Since I can’t, I’ll just encourage anyone who happens upon my blog to vote NO on Prop 8.
And just to make my point a little louder:
And if you get a chance, stop at a Hallmark store and pick up a wedding card to send to Julie and Mirna.
