I am not gay, nor are my children. I do have gay friends, though, and I know how important it is to them to be able to have equal marital rights. For instance, I have friends who have been together for 15 years, but would have no say in any decisions regarding the health of one or the other if something should happen because they are gay. That's just not right.
So I am sharing this letter from TruMajority with you here on Gather:
You might have heard that the Supreme Court of California ruled that marriage is a fundamental civil right and must not be restricted on the basis of sexual orientation. Now, on June 17th, California is poised to become only the second state in America to practice full marriage equality. Over the past decade the public has rapidly been embracing equal rights and with this clear ruling, this is our chance to put it over the top.
Now, TrueMajority.org, is sending an open letter to our nation's Governors in support of marriage equality and opposing any effort to write hatred and discrimination into the Constitution.
