Proposition 8 - California - Vote NO!

Posted by Bushel Basket in , , ,

In California, ballot Proposition 8 is to vote whether to ban same sex marriage. Vote No and protect the rights of all individuals to be with who they love.

I'm very tempted to try to outline the reasons why I feel this way, and refute from a religious perspective how the Bible is being selectively read to justify this issue, while ignoring much greater transgressions in the Bible that affect the "family." Instead, I want to appeal to those Christians who have gotten married, or who are thinking about it. Think about how you felt on your marriage day. Think about what brought you to that day. Hopefully, if you were lucky, it was love that brought you there. Think about your vows and the scripture that was read on your joyous day. Just take a minute and remember how wonderful it felt to be in love. Now, watch this video, and then think about what it would be like to have someone deny your ability to be with the one you love.

If you live in California, vote no on Proposition 8. Whether or not you live in California, donate to help support the struggle against Prop. 8.

big thanks to BL for telling me about the video, and for reminding me to be an ally.
