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.

Vote, you say? I never miss a chance to injure the body politic. (The only election I ever missed was the special one to fill my friend and congressman Leo Ryan's seat when he was murdered, and that's because I was at college in New Jersey and didn't hear in time.)

Even though I don't generally push my political views (most advocacy being self-defeating, unless done in a careful fashion, as few commentators bother to preach beyond the choir), I suspect you can guess mine: that I take this attack on your and others' marriages as a grave affront, and its dissembling rhetoric an unforgivable insult to my own "traditional marriage".

Civic duty? I keep trying! ;->

All the best,
Rick M.
