Don't Divorce My Friends

On December 19th, Ken Starr and the Proposition 8 Legal Defense Fund filed legal briefs defending Proposition 8 as Constitutional and seeking to nullify the marriages of 18,000 same-sex couples who had legally wed in the state of California before Prop 8 passed. On March 5th, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in this case.

Check out this video, Fidelity and please sign the letter at Courage Campaign to preserve Constitutional equality and to treat all citizens with dignity and respect!!!

To quote Sean Penn's brilliant Oscar acceptance speech:
I think that it is a good time for those who voted for the ban against gay marriage to sit and reflect and anticipate their great shame and the shame in their grandchildren's eyes if they continue that way of support. We've got to have equal rights for everyone.

Wow, I hadn't heard that part of his speech. Great words.

I forwarded this video and signed the petition a few weeks ago.

Yeah, his speech (and screenwriter Dustin Lance Black's speech as well) was spot on.
