I will make one last plea to Californians to vote NO on Proposition 8. Here are some analogies that would repulse most, but are equivalent to the hatred inherent in Prop 8.
- Internment of Japanese Americans (and other Asians) during WWII.
- Not recognizing marriages of individuals who are not American citizens.
- Prohibiting immigrants from marrying US-born citizens.
- Preventing women from voting — they’re too “stupid” to know what to vote for.
So don’t be a bigot. Vote NO on Prop 8.
And for all those people who think that voting NO on Prop 8 means that children will learn how to engage in homosexual intercourse in school — seriously??? I went to public school in California. My school barely had enough money to fund a health course for my class, let alone get into the details and intricacies of heterosexual intercourse. This argument is the equivalent of saying that the Constitution should be amended to preclude freedom of religion, because we shouldn’t allow people to be free to practice Islam or everyone will grow up to be terrorists!
Do the right thing. Vote NO on Prop H8.
