Did You See This

In the opinion section of the DNJ, a person writes about the proposed amendment to define marriage as between a man and a woman.

Now, just a clip of what I really thought these conservatives really need to think about.

If we believe that all people “are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights,” including “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” then we should not be swayed by those who would use prejudice, ignorance and fear to divide us. We should reject this amendment and the cynicism that produced it, and see it for what it is: a get-out-the-vote tactic of a small group of ideologues, desperate to hold on to power.

Here’s another

The so-called “marriage amendment” seeks to discriminate against a group of people who simply want to enjoy all the rights and privileges of committed partnership. That they are same-sex partners should make no difference under the law. Contrary to popular opinion, nobody’s marriage is threatened by loving, committed, same-gender couples who seek to form lasting partnerships.

It’s a good opinion, makes great sense.  I could copy and past the whole thing here, but go read it yourself.
