Scathing Letter to GLBT from a Gay Couple

Below is a link to a letter that was written to the Los Angeles GLBT Community Center by a gay couple from the bay area. They have outlined the reasons for voting YES on 8 and, hope you're sitting down for this one, say to do otherwise would be taking away religious freedom.

"Churches have a RIGHT to worship in peace as they choose. NOBODY has a right to disrupt, intimidate, protest, or disrespect these services, no matter what their agenda is. While I may not agree with many of the Church’s doctrines and teachings, out of respect and tolerance I remain humble, quiet, and respectful during the proceedings."

"Prior to this ballot measure, we were really indifferent to the whole matter. However, as voters and as a gay couple it has now gotten personal. We are now being asked to make a choice between our families and our community.We have news for all those angry-bitter people in our community; we choose to protect our family from the gay activists who threaten our families’ beliefs and religious institutions. This is a no-brainer."

I am so grateful that there are people out there who can see the whole picture and understand the meaning of tolerance. Let's keep supporting these websites/posts/blogs!

That is an incredible letter. Kudos to the guys gutsy enough to stand for what they know is right.

That is truly an effective letter. I know that there are many homosexual individuals who are clear-headed on this matter and plan to vote YES on Prop 8, for many reasons, including freedom of religion and the indignation at the undemocratic process that made same-gender marriage legal.
