Beyond Disappointed with Today’s Prop 8 Outcome

For those of you who haven’t heard the bad news, the California Supreme Court released this morning that Prop 8 is being upheld.

While I feel extremely angry about this decision, I find myself ultimately feeling more disappointed with the state I call home, as well as my country.  If you don’t believe in same sex marriage, then don’t marry someone who is the same sex as you!  Simple as that!  Honestly people, what gives you the right to dictate how others should live their life?  Who are you to tell someone that they can’t marry the one they love?!?

Some of my best friends are gay and it’s just heartbreaking that they can’t share in a marital commitment to one another.  Isn’t the constitution meant to protect ALL of us????  The people’s decision is unfair, plain and simple — It’s unfortunate the majority of California voted this way.  

We all have a voice, and now more than ever we all need to use it.  Demonstrations will be happening all over the country today and tonight, so please join in the fight for equality.

I appreciate all of you expressing your opinions on the matter in comments on my post on Saturday, so please keep them coming!  I love hearing what all of you have to say.
