Stop Bigotry: Legalize Gay Marriage For The United States – Sign a Petition


IN America, we are granted with FREEDOM OF SPEECH. We may not always agree with someone’s views, but it is their choice to have their own opinion. Like it or not.

All the drama around Prop 8 in California has escalated, out of control.


A supporter of California’s Proposition 8, fed up with what he believed was the gay community’s and “liberal media’s” refusal to accept the voters’ verdict against same-sex marriage, fired off a letter to the editor.

“Please show respect for democracy,” he wrote to the San Francisco Chronicle.

What he encountered instead was an utter lack of respect for free speech.

Within hours, the intimidation game was on. Because his real name and city were listed — a condition for publication of letters to The Chronicle — opponents of Prop. 8 used Internet search engines to find the letter writer’s small business, his Web site (which included the names of his children and dog), his phone number and his clients. And they posted that information in the “Comments” section of — urging, in ugly language, retribution against the author’s business and its identified clients.

We can not intimidate people that don’t have the same beliefs as  we do! We can try to educate them. And we try to move on, move forward, with positive iniatives. Step around the “haters” and don’t spend your energy there.

Papers  have already been filed with the Supreme Courts in an attempt to overturn the YES ON 8. And this petition is being circulated  by John Smithers, who I met thru the Human Rights Campaign Group on LinkedIn. And  it is  being sent to the President of the United States, United States House of Representatives, United States Senate. (President elect Obama has already stated he is FOR equal rights for gay couples under a civil partnership act).  

So if you are a reader of this blog and support  equality for gay people, please take 2 minutes and sign this petition!

If you REALLY want  to help, there is second petition to repeal the Defense Against Marriage Act.

If you a blogger – please help spread the word and this link.

And if you are not in support of equal rights for gay people, you are probably  heterosexual and have of all your rights! But hey, that’s your choice, have a good day!
