Dear Governor Schwarzenegger –
If we had a government registry for religion, what would it look like?
It would obviously require people to be a certain age, and only register once. Would it require a race, a gender, or a certain belief? Obviously not. Would it only have a few checkboxes? That would be silly. Not even our voter registration forms restrict choice or demand a specific affiliation.
The state does run a registry for marriage. Would you lease explain why same-sex domestic partners are prevented from participating in that registry?
