Prop. 8 Ruling by California Supreme Court

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

Today the California Supreme Court upheld Proposition 8, banning same-sex marriage in the state of California.  The court also ”allowed” the 18,000 couples who married before the ban to stay married.  As one of those couples, I have this to say:  The multitudes of Californians who support the ban have lost the arguments they had against my marriage, namely that it would destroy the public school curriculum, destroy the foundation of heterosexual marriage and lay waste to religious practice.  Are all you couples in “different” sexed marriages shaking in your boots because I married my man?  Are your marriages falling apart?  Threatened?  Have your children been subjected to a subversive homosexual curriculum in their schools yet?  Do you expect them to be next year?  Two years from now?  Has your connection with God been lost?  Has your place of worship been compromised?  Has my marriage interfered with the way you practice your religion?  Please keep me informed because I’m married and I’m not going anywhere.  And I want to know. 

Gay Civil Rights Bonanza

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

I am balls to the walls busy editing the first draft of my new novel. But I must take a moment to celebrate the recent gay marriage decisions in Vermont, Iowa, the District of Columbia, and now Maine. It’s a little embarrassing to live in California, the Golden State, where trends are supposed to start. But now we have the the passage of Prop. 8 banning gay marriage in California and Miss California and her chicken cutlet breast implants on her crusade against gay civil rights. Geez. California ran a wheel or two off, seems like to me.

Come back to me, California.
