Prop 8




Tears came to my eyes today as I learned that Prop 8 in California was upheld by the State Supreme Court.

Once again, same sex couples, their families and their precious children were relegated to being second class citizens.

Everyone in this country is entitled to equal opportunity for human dignity.

Jesus would agree.

And this is never something that should have come up for a vote. This is a civil rights matter, not a popularity contest. When the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was passed, it was not because of popular consensus. It was because it was the right thing to do. So is giving same sex couples the same rights as everyone else.

Unfortunately not everyone agrees to equal opportunity.
