No on Prop 8

If you haven't already, please think hard about sending a donation, in any amount you can afford, so that Equality California can keep the ad below running through the weekend in an effort to defeat Proposition 8.

Help to allow couples like Supergirl One and Beloved to realize their futures together, legally.

Thank you and peace to you and yours. And don't forget to check the post below for pre-wedding photos of my daughter's wedding in California. The professional wedding photos won't be available for another three weeks or so. :-)

  1. To be sure, I can relate, I married a black man in 1965 -- not the best of times then either. We had to marry in CA because it was still against the law in Texas, where he was stationed and where I taught school. We have four children, we were married for twenty years, when it ended it had nothing to do with color, and we are still good friends. Descrimination is wrong whether it has to do with color or sexual preference, we should have the right to happiness with whomever we choose.

  2. Sylvia: thank you again and again for sharing a little of your experience here in my comments.

    What you say about discrimination being wrong is so basic that it's hard for me to fathom any other way of thinking; though I'm fully on guard that it exists as is evidenced by the amount of money that has been funneled into Prop 8. You'd think in these times people would have more important things to support with their money but there you go. I too wish that the money I've sent to Equality CA could have gone somewhere else and not to fight the work of the bigots.

  3. I do feel Prop 8 will go down, speaking as a resident of CA.....I sure hope it does!

  4. that's a nice little video. Simple and to the point. As you say, it is so sad that after all this time our countrymen still cannot remember what it's supposed to be all about.

  5. That ad is brilliant, really it is. I wasn't initially thrilled with most of the No on 8 ads, but they've really stepped up in the last few weeks and have some great stuff out there.

    Poll-wise, the numbers in support of No on 8 are rising, but it's estimated that about 22% of people in CA have already cast a vote, and slim majority of those people voted YES on 8, which is obviously disappointing. A fair margin is still undecided, which is good [historically speaking people who are undecided about a week out from a constitutional amendment are unlikely to vote to amend] but it's also likely that many people will decline to vote "down ballot" in CA, where there are 12 proposed propositions to keep tabs on. Many people might just vote for president and move on.

    Here's to hoping and thanks for all of the kind comments!
