Same-sex marriage

As most of you know, I fully support this cause so when I saw the following on green_queen's lj, I had to call and make my voice heard and I'm hoping you all will too.


As you presumably know, California's recent court decision regarding same-sex marriage was a huge fucking deal. It was historic, long overdue, and took a hell of a lot of fighting.

Unfortunately (and not surprisingly) Governor Schwarzenegger is receiving tons of phone calls from the supporters of 'Limits on Marriage' (the constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage in California) about his comment to a group of Log Cabin Republicans that he wouldn't support a constitutional amendment which discriminates against gays by defining marriage as only being between a man and woman.

We don't want him to go back on his word. So he needs to hear from us, too.

Calling to voice your support for California's gay marriage ruling means calling an automated system; you won't have to talk to anyone. And you can call even if you're not from California. So please, the more the better.

The number is 1-916-445-2841; press 1, 5, 1 to get to the particular issue, then press 1 if you want to support upholding the court decision and are against a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage. (This means you support the right to marry *regardless* of sex and the government needs to keep their nose out of the bedroom and NOT amend the constitution by telling us that those who want to get married, can't.)
