Tuesday November 8th was a historic moment. But while Americans voted for Barack Obama, they also voted for Proposition 8 in California. That is two steps forward, one step backwards. With inspiration from this blog, this is what I have to say to Prop 8:
Unfortunately this is something I expect in Texas, where the roots of bigotry run deeper than the branches of tolerance and respect for the unbeaten path. But I am disappointed that Californians made a decision that makes the recognition of love by two people no longer valid. It's more frustrating in this case because it's not resistance to change, it's not lack of progression. It's regression. It's not a refusal to validate love, it's invalidating love. What a bunch of Indian givers.
