Dear Governor Schwarzenegger –
I really believe that California would be better with same-sex marriage. I wonder how this might play out in the media…

Dear Editor –
I’m a father of twins, and I believe that what’s best for kids is an environment where churches and couples have the freedom to make their own decisions about marriage. That’s why I want the Governor to sign AB 43, the Religious Freedom and Civil Marriage Protection Act.
This bill gets our government out of the business of interfering with marriage by pushing those very personal decisions down to the people themselves, but the Governor has said – with all seriousness – that he wants the courts to make these decisions instead, and that he will veto this philosophically important bill.
I may never understand why the Governor chooses to block committed couples from making the commitment of marriage, but failing to agree that all citizens deserve the same freedoms is an awful lesson to be teaching our children.
So what lesson are our children going to learn from you?
