    Re: Prop 8

    I can't believe the "Supreme Court" (oximoron) of California on Prop 8 and I'm a thoroughly appalled. Here in Canada we've had same sex marriage for years now and the sky hasn't fallen. While surfing the net for music for my upcoming boat cruise, I ran across this video by Ray Boltz-Don't Tell Me Who To Love. Ray was a very famous Born Again Christian musician who for 30 some years was in the closet and just came out last year. Here is the link to the video.

    Thank you, Larry.

    I agree - this is not an issue other than human rights. No other way will do.

    Thank goodness for our constitution - unlike religion is is written for everybody. Regardless of race, color or sex. Let's put this to work.

    Take care.

    Prop 8

    Slavery is founded in the selfishness of man's nature -- opposition to it is in his love of justice. These principles are an eternal antagonism; and when brought into collision so fiercely, as slavery extension brings them, shocks, and throes, and convulsions must ceaselessly follow. Repeal the Missouri Compromise -- repeal all compromises -- repeal the declaration of independence -- repeal all past history, you still can not repeal human nature. It still will be the abundance of man's heart, that slavery extension is wrong; and out of the abundance of his heart, his mouth will continue to speak.
    --October 16, 1854 Speech at Peoria

    "We have, as all will agree, a free Government, where every man has a right to be equal with every other man. In this great struggle, this form of Government and every form of human right is endangered if our enemies succeed."
    --August 22, 1864 Speech to the One Hundred Sixty-fourth Ohio Regiment

    I leave you, hoping that the lamp of liberty will burn in your bosoms until there shall no longer be a doubt that all men are created free and equal.
    --July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago, Illinois
