Get up Stand up

As some of you may have seen, I posted a couple weeks ago about standing on the street with Prop 8 signs. The truth is, so many people are doing so much, and here is a link to someone who has "put her money where her mouth is", literally. I'm glad we can all come together in this and encourage one another to stand up for what we believe, even when it is unpopular. Yes, there is opposition, and just as we aim to tolerate and love everyone, tolerance is a two-way street and we expect the same amount of tolerance that is demanded of us. It is so ironic to think that a country that was founded on religious freedom is having it potentially torn from underneath it under the guise of equality and freedom. In my opinion, Voting No on Prop 8 will take away many more rights than it will bestow. Just read what has already happened in Mass. where gay marriage has already been legalized. It has left many people powerless in many ways. It's fine if you don't agree, I just hope that everyone educates themselves on the pros and cons before Nov. 4th so everyone can make an educated vote and understand the consequences of that vote.

I LOVE YOU GUYS!! Callie - you are so entertaining! I seriously just sat at my computer for an hour reading all your old posts. (I love the chivalry post, by the way. And the unnecessary quotation marks was hilarious. Luke and I noticed that they did that EVERYWHERE in DC when we lived there.) I think it's so cool that you are doing so much for Prop 8. You guys are awesome!
