Dear Governor Schwarzenegger -
I know you don’t answer to Al Gore, but you did listen to him about the environment, and that has turned out pretty well for everybody. Would you at least listen to what he has to say about same-sex marriage?
Gay men and women ought to have the same rights as heterosexual men and women — to make contracts, to have hospital visiting rights, to join together in marriage, and I don’t understand why it is considered by some people to be a threat to heterosexual marriage.
Shouldn’t we be promoting that kind of faithfulness and loyalty to ones partner regardless of sexual orientation?
It is sad that it takes a Democrat to actually stand up for what so many Republicans say they believe: government ought not to intrude in the private lives of individuals where no state purpose is served.
Please, Governor, you don’t even need your own TV network. Just stand up in front of the California Supreme Court and tell them that all Californians deserve the freedom to marry.
