Love Will Prevail



This brought tears to my eyes. As if it weren't enough to take away their right to marry, now they are trying to divorce all of the gay couples who were married between May and November. Please sign the Courage Campaign and help fight against the injustice. Just look at how happy these families are...how could you (being the pro-Prop 8 people) take that happiness away from them?! What kind of people are you? What sort of values do you have? You make me sick to my stomach.

Love will prevail. I have faith in the non-discriminating people. The people who understand the beauty in love, no matter what your gender, color of skin or beliefs. You don't have to agree with being gay, but you don't have the right to take away their possibility to experience the same civil rights that you do. Even for the most conservative and religious people---have you never heard of the saying "hate the sin, love the sinner"? And what about the separation of church and state? Leave religious beliefs out of the picture and let everyone get married.

Please, please, please sign the Courage Campaign. And then let everyone you know about it.

Thought you might be interested in this campaign this week: http://www.freedomtomarry.org/get_involved/freedom_to_marry_week_2009bl.php

It is so important to have straight allies be a part of this. Somehow society in general hears the non-oppressed fighting for the oppressed much louder than they hear for a group shouting from the rooftop for their rights.
