what can i say? i'm a libra & all about equality

Tomorrow on Capital hill there will be a constitutional vote concerning the Federal Marriage Amendment Act which threatens to deny marriage equality to same-sex couples. These people, while living 'unconventional lifestyles', have found the true love we all yearn for. Who in their right mind would try to ban such unions, in essence attempting to make these people criminals?

This amendment makes gay people out to be 'religious and soicial abominations'...while in fact they are not. These are our friends, brothers, sisters, uncles, co workers & they need all our help to defeat this evil attack on their existence. So please help to ensure the freedom and equality of all our brothers and sisters nationwide by signing an online petition via the Moveon organization. It only takes a minute, I promise...and it will fill you with a warm happy sensation inside that only takes palce when you know you have done something undeniably and irrefutably right.

While this amendment doesn't directly affect me (a heterosexual woman), I feel very deeply about it, as in my opinion: LOVE IS LOVE. Whether it’s between a man and a woman, a man and a man, a dog and a goat (sorry about the poor use of words, but my point is made). I don't care who it is, if they are in love and wish to be married, no one has the right to tell them they cannot.

The way I figure it is: If we don't fight for the rights of ALL the American people, we are only allowing these conservative assholes to further limit our own rights. Slowly but surely, they are tightening the ropes and attempting to reverse the last few decades of foward movement in civil rights for all Americans. I refuse to contribute to that rope I'm spreading the love for same sex marriage. How about you ?
