Keep it simple...

repost as much or as little (or none) of this as you like:

Are you a California voter?

3 years ago, we had a commitment ceremony. It was presided over by a minister. 3 months ago we got married. It was provided over by a minister. California Proposition 8 isn't about religious rights. This is about denying religious rights.

You can't save marriage by destroying marriages.

A vote for California Proposition 8 is a vote to destroy my marriage.

A vote for California Proposition 8 is a vote to destroy my family's life.

A vote for California Proposition 8 is a vote to destroy my friends' lives.

A vote for California Proposition 8 is a vote to ruin the lives of ordinary Californians.

And I'm going to take it personally.

What? You don't vote? It's too hard? It's too inconvenient?

I'm going to take that personally too. An abstention might as well be a vote in favor. Get your sorry ass registered and out to the polls. Read up on the other propositions too. Read up on the candidates for office. Do your fucking civil duty.

Or for purposes of immigration.

My wife and I are legally married in Canada, and have been since Sept. 1, 2005. The U.S. Federal Government does not recognize that marriage for purposes of immigration.

My wife and I were married here in California, this year. The Federal Government still does not recognize that marriage for purposes of immigration.

Therefore, I'm immigrating to Canada. As the spouse of a Canadian citizen.

I see Madoc's point - I do. It's a valid point. Unfortunately, there are many, many people who can't wait - whose lives and families can't wait - for the baby steps.
