November 15 anti-Prop 8 demonstration

I really don't like to talk about politics on this blog; that's not what I want to do here at all. But I also don't want to re-read my blog at some future date and find that I was mostly silent about larger events going on in the world that mattered to me.

There will be a nationwide political demonstration this Saturday to protest the outcome of Proposition 8 in California, and I'm going to attend.

I'm not going to bash Mormons or Catholics or Blacks or any other group of people. I understand that Americans have different opinions on the subject of same-sex marriage, and I respect that. At the same time, this is my life. I just got married and that means a great deal to me. I'm not about to let 52% of California knock it down without a fight.

Hi Chuck, I don't blame you at all and hope to see and probably will see a huge turn out.

Dear ChuckB

You will always be married! This prop WILL be overturned!
I have been at many of the most beautiful weddings lately, and nothing can change what happened in those rooms.

My heart is with you and your husband, and I will be fighting right along with you, even though I'm in Los Angeles...

I hope the demonstration is a rousing success...this has GOT to be overturned!

I agree wholeheartedly... I hope that the demonstration is overwhelming in number, and is successful enough to make that 52% of Californians (and those elsewhere) rethink their stance on this issue.
