Picking up on that last blog post regarding "Milk," I need to go a step further on Proposition 8.
"Unfair! And wrong! No on 8!" a large group of demonstrators chanted over and over and over last night outside the film's world premiere as I arrived for the screening. That says it all.
Famly, friends, and colleagues if you live in California, I urge you to please think long and hard about the message that Proposition 8 sends to same sex couples or to those of us who are simply striving for not just tolerance but total acceptance by society. Equality and respect.
Politicians, moms, dads, friends, colleagues, unions, churches, and many many groups are against this proposition. In 2008, when we hope to elect a president vowing change for our country, how can we allow California to eliminate the rights of some? Prop 8 is discrimination.
