Vote NO!!!

This election season, three states have proposed legislation that would make same-sex marriage illegal.

Earlier this year, the California Supreme Court unequivocally held that same-sex couples have a right to marry under the California Constitution. Proposition 8 wants to amend the California Constitution to remove this right. You may have already seen some celebrity ads against Proposition 8 in California, but you may not be aware of or fully understand the similar propositions in your own hometown! Proposition 102 in Arizona and Amendment 2 in Florida also seek to make same-sex marriage illegal in those states.

If you live in California, Arizona, or Florida... the ESC is asking you to please vote NO on these propositions. No matter what your sexual orientation is and no matter how you personally feel about marriage, it is WRONG to deny fundamental rights. Vote NO.

Proposition 8 wants to add to the California Constitution:
"only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California"

Same-sex marriage is already illegal in Arizona, but Proposition 102 would make this unable to be changed by either the state legislature or the state judiciary.

The text of Proposition 102 states:
"Only a union of one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in this state"

Amendment 2 states:
"Inasmuch as marriage is the legal union of only one man and one woman as husband and wife, no other legal union that is treated as marriage or the substantial equivalent thereof shall be valid or recognized."


In case you haven't gotten the message, here are some videos- both silly and serious, both funny and moving - to really drill this information into you:

And while you're voting NO, please vote for Obama/Biden too... We already know how horrible McCain and Palin would be for the GLBT community (and well, practically every other community).

Today is Write to Marry Day, so go to their website to check out what other people have to say about Prop 8, etc.
