Re: “Supreme Court Will Hear Prop. 8 Arguments

Sadly, after fighting a losing 35-year battle on abortion, the religious right feels comfortable attacking a strong, proud and often-vilified minority. That bigotry ruled Election Day when barriers were broken fills me with an agonizing pathos. The realities of American life often fall short of our dreams. Throughout our history, the majority of Americans have often targeted different minority groups for discrimination. I have always stood against discrimination and have devoted my life to diversity issues.

As a 46-year-old woman who is one half of one of the 18,000 couples who was married in California prior to the passing of Proposition 8, I understand that the government recognizes me a lot when it cashes my tax check. However, I will no longer be your gay friend, America, until you honor the rights that our founding fathers and God gave me, too, through the Constitution. You have no right whatsoever to force me to follow your religious doctrines, especially when it violates my religious freedom as an American. The attacks on my wife and me through your obsessive, ongoing lawsuits and discrimination are products of your religious moral dilemma that would be best solved by holding marriage counseling groups for your parishioners with marriage issues. The sad reality is that a large religious organization outspent the gay community and got their ads out first. We protest this decision. We need to educate you, supporters of Proposition 8, about a simple thing called love and a brilliant document called the United States Constitution, especially the section that begins “All men are created equal….” While I will respect you even when you don’t respect me, it is not over.
