Today’s letter – Imperial County attacks the gays, since the State won’t

Dear Governor Schwarzenegger –

In case you didn’t notice, the Opponents of Equality are steaming mad that you refused to join their gang and beat up on lesbian and gay Californians by defending Prop 8. In the latest ploy, they’re beating the bushes to find someone with legal standing to continue their campaign against my family.

Apparently they were able to convince the Imperial County Board of Supervisors to let the religious group Advocates for Faith and Freedom use the County’s standing to try to defend the indefensible. Good luck to them.

I am heartened that this seems headed in the right direction: instead of the Federal government deciding if two people can get married, instead of the State government deciding if two people can get married, it might be the County government who decides if two people can get married.

Maybe, someday, it will be the two people themselves who can decide to get married!

Sincerely,

Share
