By now you’ve probably heard about California’s Proposition 8. If you haven’t, its a vote to enact a Constitutional ban on Gay Marriage.
If this measure is passed, millions of Gay Americans will have rights stripped from them. Reread that sentence. Right now, California has NO BAN on Gay marriage. Its perfectly legal to get married in California for Gay men and women.
Proposition 8 will take that right away from these Americans. What sort of society do we live in when we are willingly taking rights away from people based on religious beliefs? This measure is simply a way for the Christian Right to gain more political power and to dictate morals to everyone else.
As a native Californian, (albeit who doesn’t live in California anymore), I am firmly against Proposition 8 because it violates the rights as laid down by our own Constitution. I am appalled at the notion that any one group would be willing to strip rights away from another group simple because they don’t like who they sleep with, or who they want to marry.
If you live in California, I urge you to vote NO on 8 on November 4th. If this measure passes, it will be used as a stepping stone in other states to promote a Christian controlled theocracy where anyone not professing Christian beliefs are rounded up and placed in a concentration camp and the self fulfilling prophecy that is Revelation will come to pass; if you don’t show a Cross, you can’t vote, be a member of society, buy food, rent a house, or own a car. In short, the Cross will become the Mark of the Beast.
Now I know this last sentence will probably piss you off if you’re a Christian. Guess what: I don’t care. Your political party has too much power in this country and is violating Constitutional law. I will not stand idly by while your zealotry destroys this country.
STOP PROPOSITION 8! SAVE AMERICA WHILE THERE IS STILL TIME!
