Dan Savage has been a hero in fighting the discriminatory Proposition 8 in California. You can still donate here. Here's an email Dan received that he has given me permission to share:
I am a straight, married man, and I am a practicing Mormon. I am disgusted with my church's efforts to pass proposition 8. Not only do we have more important things to devote our energy and money towards--last time I checked, people were still starving, suffering from disease, neglect and abuse, and all other kinds of ills that could be helped with some good Christian sentiment--but I am horrified at the idea of painting loving, stable families like yours as something shameful, hurtful to children, or worse.
I am both biracial myself and in an interracial marriage, and I'm all too familiar with the kinds of stupid rhetoric about "our kind of love" that was acceptable, within the past 50 years and even within my lifetime. I look forward to the day when all of us--gay/straight, religious/non-religious, etc.--will shudder at the thought that it was once acceptable to deny honest, loving people the right to marry and commit to each other. We're still not quite there even when it comes to interracial relationships, but we're close to having a biracial man in the White House (hopefully), and maybe within our lifetimes we'll see an (openly) LGBT president. I wish I could do more, but for now $25 is all I can spare for No on 8; but every cent counts, right?
