Six Days for Marriage Equality

In six days, voters will head to the polls across this great country to vote, among other things, for the future leadership in Pennsylvania and across America.  Although most everyone will probably be relived to take a breather from the non-stop polls and pundits, this election is turning into quite a historic moment for both this country and the LGBT movement.

One of the most important issues on the ballot for LGBT Americans will be voted on in California, as voters will decide whether or not to pass Proposition 8, a measure that would eliminate the fundamental right for same-sex couples to marry in California.

From the No on 8 website,

Prop 8 is Unfair

Regardless of how you feel about this issue, we should not eliminate rights for any Californian. Prop 8 would mandate, under the laws of our state, that one group of people would be treated differently form everyone else. That’s just unfair.

Prop 8 is Wrong

Prop 8 is fueled by special interest groups that have engaged in a deceptive campaign.

The government has no business telling people who have been together for years that they can or cannot get married.

In California, we let people decide for themselves what’s best for them. We believe in the freedom to make choices without government interference. Prop 8 is wrong for California.

This is truly a historic moment for our community.  Between now and election day, please spread the word to your friends and family in California and ask them all to VOTE NO on 8!

Discrimination should never be written into the constitution.
