Today’s letter – Miss California’s lesson about sex outside of marriage comes from her own mom, Mr. Terminator Salvation

Dear Governor Schwarzenegger –

Carrie Prejean, Miss California and NOMBLA spokesperson, is once again in the news today. You may recall that Miss Prejean lost the Miss USA crown after she preached “in my country, in my family, I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman.” Well it turns out that, according to ABC News, her mom was dating a woman as recently as two weeks before the Pageant.

I guess in her country, in her family, she believes that gay sex is OK, as long as it isn’t marriage. I don’t know what perverted Bible she is using, but it sure isn’t the same as mine. My Bible says the opposite: that sex is for marriage. Anything else is adultery. And there is nothing wrong with gay marriage.

The only solution that protects everybody’s religious freedom is a Government that respects both of our interpretations. That is easy to do by letting two people who are able to get married, get married to each other. That’s the only way that Miss Prejean does not have to get gay-married, and I do not have to get, as Miss. Prejean calls it, opposite-married.

Come on, Governor, with the budget disaster, you’re running out of legacies!

Sincerely,

Today’s letter – treat Miss California like she treats others

Dear Governor Schwarzenegger –

Well, it took less time than I thought it would for Miss California to demonstrate why Opponents of Equality are ethically bankrupt. Since the pageant where Carrie Prejean announced her beliefs and renounced her crown, it was revealed that:

About the nude pictures, Miss Prejean says “I am a Christian, and I am a model. … Recently photos taken of me as a teenager have been released. … But these attacks on me and others who speak in defense of traditional marriage are intolerant and offensive.” Wow, she really doesn’t understand Karma, does she?

I wish you keep this lesson in mind the next time the Opponents of Equality approach you to have you veto a human rights bill. Opponents of Equality, like all Americans, are free to believe what they want, however they are not free to do things that hurt other people.

Sincerely,

Today’s letter – Off with her crown!

Dear Governor Schwarzenegger –

The big news this May Day is that Miss California Carrie Prejean has left California to join NOM, the National Organization for Marriage, which despite its name, is actually working its dandiest to block marriages.

My Bible says “suffer not a woman to teach, but to keep her silence.” (1 Timothy 2:12) which along with other similar admonishments (1 Corinthians 14:34-35 and 1 Corinthians 11:3) makes it clear Ms. Prejean is a grievous sinner.

Does she have the right to say “marriage should be between a man and a woman?” By her own yardstick, no, she does not. If we are using the Bible as the measure of rights then either I should be able to get married, or she should shut up. “for it is not permitted to them to speak.”

I think she needs to have her crown stripped. She has abandoned California and her Special Olympics cause to take away my religious freedom. For that she deserves it not herself.

Sincerely,

Letter to New Hampshire Governor John Lynch

Governor John Lynch
State House
25 Capitol Street
Concord, NH 03301

April 30, 2009

Dear Governor Lynch,

I live in California where our Governor was sent two same-sex marriage bills and vetoed them both.

  • It was painful to have my governor say that he is better at deciding who I can marry than I am.
  • It was sad to watch our friends go to Canada and Massachusetts to get married instead of Disneyland.
  • It was confusing to our children to have parents who weren’t married.
  • It was humiliating to have my religion and beliefs made subservient to others.

Please, before you make your decision on HB 436, talk to your wife and ask her about what the professionals in pediatrics agree: there is nothing wrong with gay marriage. Then imagine your life if you were Domestic Partnered instead of married.

Call Governor Schwarzenegger (you can do that, right?) and ask him if he regrets his veto: he has said he does.

And invoke the words of former Wisconsin Governor Lee Sherman Dreyfus who signed the first statewide gay rights law in the United States in 1982: “It is a fundamental tenet of the Republican Party that government ought not to intrude in the private lives of individuals where no state purpose is served, and there is nothing more private or intimate than who you live with and who you love.”

Yours,

P.S. I know you are a Democrat – act like one and sign this human rights bill!

Today’s letter – Doctors should not be able to choose between their faith and their job

Dear Governor Schwarzenegger –

In the “Gathering Storm” ad being aired by the National Organization for Marriage (“NOM”) there is a California doctor who testifies that she “has to choose between my faith and my job.”

I don’t want to live in a state where the doctor at the emergency room triages patients based on their beliefs; I don’t want to live in a state where my HMO sends patients to somebody who gives them second-class treatment because of their prejudices.

I don’t think the remedy is getting rid of same-sex marriage. Governor, could you please contact NOM to find out who that California doctor is, so she can be immediately removed from medical practice?

Sincerely,
