Defining Marriage - which sex are you?

Here in California we have a terrific chance to protect our civil rights, by voting against Proposition 8, obstensibly an attempt to "protect marriage" by defining it as between one man and one woman. 

Wonder what we're "protecting" it from, since marriage as it is currently defined is more inclusive than it will be should Prop 8 pass!

My niece, a student at UCal Berkeley, was approached by a Mormon Facebook Friend to vote for this heinous attempt to limit freedom in an obviously coordinated attempt to confuse and lie about this proposition!

Here's a fascinating look at defining marriage as exclusively between a man and a woman. 

The legal issues that could result are far and away worse than anything than having "same-sex" stand as a legal right under current law!


"To sum up, "marriage protection" statutes are already a debacle from the standpoint of their own advocates: Those laws spectacularly fail to advance their objectives — and are in fact a powerful tool for social conservatives' political and social enemies to create same sex marriages that were impossible without them. That effect can only get worse, over time. The only thing they're particularly good for is breaking up real, existing marriages of those unlucky enough to fail an inevitably arbitrary and unrealistic legal test of one's sexual identity: None of those "Which sex are you?" tests proposed, tried, or likely to emerge fixes the problem."

We must thwart all attempts by religious fanatics to destroy our Constitutionally guaranteed civil rights, unless we'd rather live in a theocracy...
