No Love for Prop H8  
lauratd posted this on her LJ and it was so good and I believe in it so much, I've copied it word for word to my journal. All credit goes to lauratd

I have created a fundraising page called Love not H8 to help defeat prop H8

For those of you not familiar with proposition 8 (or as I call it prop H8) it is an attempt to rewrite the state constitution of CA to strip people of their rights to marry whom they choose.

The people pushing this proposition call themselves Christians but they are bearing false witness. They are putting out ads saying that churches will lose their tax exempt status if they don't perform same-sex weddings. This is a complete lie. Churches have the right to marry or not marry whomever they choose and the state has no way to force them to perform ceremonies they don't believe in. Which is as it should be. Seriously, do you think people want to be married by a minister who thinks their love is a sin? They don't . They want to be married by a minister who honors their love. So you can tell Aunt Martha that she doesn't have to worry that poor Fred Phelps will be hogtied and forced to watch boys kiss (unless he comes to the Folsom Street Fair, in which case, I make no guarantees).

As it says on my page:

I refuse to wake up November 5th and find out that people were denied their constitutional rights because I did nothing. I refuse to watch silently as people are denied legal rights because their love makes other people feel uncomfortable. I refuse to let hate win out over love without a fight.

I might not have the funds that the Church of LDS has, but LTD has Love on her side and if you feel like throwing some of your funds in with mine come on over to my Love not H8 page.

If you believe in this and want to repost it in your LJ, just copy/paste the text in the box, with all credit going to lauratd of course!

Thanks for forwarding this. I keep seeing the LDS funded hate ads and I want to see more of the ads debunking their bullshit.

Between that and all the racist shit people are yelling at McPalin rallies It makes me weep.

I know. I'm not really happy with the way this election has been turning out. The racism, lies, and downright hate have been unbelievable.

And everytime I see a Vote Yes for Marriage, Vote Yes on Prop 102 ad here, I want to barf. They are trying to change the state constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman, even though it's already defined in state law. Ridiculous.

Since our act came in a few years back now saying anyone can marry who they want to, I would fully stand behind this! love is love after all!

Wonderfully worded.

I'd like to repost this on my page if that's ok. It's something I feel strongly about and I think there are people on my flist who should see it.

Please do repost it! We want to try to get the word out to as many people as possible. Thank you.
