Support Prop 8, Watch Fidelity and sign the Petition

"Fidelity": Watch the video and join our letter to the state Supreme Court, signed by over 200,000 people.

Tell the Supreme Court to invalidate Prop 8, reject Ken Starr's case, and let loving, committed couples marry. DEADLINE EXTENDED: March 2

We, the undersigned, share President Barack Obama's view that "for too long, issues of LGBT rights have been exploited by those seeking to divide us. It's time to move beyond polarization and live up to our founding promise of equality
by treating all our citizens with dignity and respect."

Yet, on December 19, 2008, Ken Starr and the Prop 8 Legal Defense Fund filed legal briefs defending the constitutionality of Prop 8 and seeking to nullify the marriages of 18,000 devoted same-sex couples solemnized before Prop 8 passed.

The Supreme Court will hear arguments in this case on March 5, with a decision expected within 90 days. We, the undersigned, ask that the Court enforce the equality promised to each of us by our constitution and invalidate
Prop 8. So doing will protect all loving, committed couples in California -- including the 18,000 who said "I do" last year -- and prevent the initiative process from being a tool for stripping vulnerable minorities of precious constitutional rights.


As Americans who believe in the rule of law and fundamental civil rights, we know that Ken Starr and the Prop 8 Legal Defense Fund's shameful attempt to nullify equal protection and all these bonded unions will be condemned in the eyes
of history. We know that, ultimately, love will prevail, no matter how hard they try to fight it.

They got Ken Starr to defend Prop 8? I'll be signing that petition. Hopefully that discriminatory amendment can be removed.

Iowa's Supreme Court heard arguments on Gay Marriage in December. We are still waiting on a ruling. If it goes in our favor I may be getting married this summer.

I hope it helps. I do believe that gay marriage will be legal in most states in the not too, too distant future, but it's a bumpy ride getting there, for sure.
