The Injustice of Proposition 8

"Fidelity": Don't Divorce... from Courage Campaign on Vimeo.

I'm not big on romance but I believe in Love and I believe in Justice. There is nothing loving or just about Prop 8. I watched this video and signed the letter of protest and post it here so that others may also have that opportunity.

And when my own child learns that the government can break up a marriage and says to me in a voice both trembling and defiant that we would still be a family no matter what they said, I know that I must stand up for other families founded on love and threatened by bigotry so that my child's fear does not become another child's reality.
