Dear Governor Schwarzenegger –
The religious right is mounting a huge campaign to meddle with my family and block gay marriage for a very long time. Anybody with the brains God gave geese knows this is driven by fear and ignorance rather than an honest reading of The Bible. Anybody who has had an opportunity to know me and my family can tell you that there’s nothing wrong with gay marriage.
The problem is that a popular vote right now will turn out very poorly for California’s families. It will tell generations of kids that if they are gay, there is no hope. It will tell adults that it’s OK to harm homosexuals. And it makes life more difficult for my kids, and the kids of other gay and lesbian parents.
The Christian leadership has been tragically vocal on this issue, while our leadership has been silent. Letting the people decide based on the lies they have heard will harm many people for a very long time. I wish you would stand up for equality and tell the people what you think they should do about marriage. Please sign AB 43, for me, my kids, and all California.
