The Supreme Court of the State of California has upheld Prop H8. There is no gentle way to break the unfortunate news. The Court has seen fit to uphold hatred and bigotry rather than equality and justice. What this says, loud and clear, is that Californians get to vote on the civil rights of fellow-Californians. Whose civil rights would you like to vote on next? Women? African-Americans? Latinos? You can, you know, if you can get a proposition on the ballot. That's all it takes to make sure some group YOU don't like has their civil rights denied.

Yes, this may stand for the time being, but I urge ALL LGBTQ people, families, and friends: don't back down until all people have the right to marry whom they love and when they do, that they have all the RIGHTS and responsibilities of marriage.
