Not only did California vote to ban gay marriage in November, now 18,000 legal marriages performed before the election are in danger of being nullified, thanks to Ken Starr. How can this be?

Courage Campaign has put out this powerful video featuring Regina Spektor's Fidelity (which just happens to be in constant rotation in this house) and I encourage you to watch it, talk about it, act on it, and share it with anyone you know who's concerned with justice and equal rights.

"Fidelity": Don't Divorce... from Courage Campaign on Vimeo.

As Americans who believe in the rule of law and fundamental civil rights, we know that Ken Starr and the Prop 8 Legal Defense Fund's shameful attempt to nullify these unions will not be vindicated in the eyes of history. We know that, ultimately, love will prevail, no matter how hard they try to fight it.--Courage Campaign

I think it's wrong to extend a special kind of contract to certain couples and not to others.
And I also think this should be a non-issue given all of the really important issues that are facing us.

Why the heck is anyone denying a certain class of people the right to make a marriage contract? Is it spite? Or are they trying to draw our attention away from other things they are doing?
