Re: NYC Prop. 8 protest Wednesday!

Same sex civil marriage has nothing to do with church and everything to do with State.

It is a secular civil rights issue.

We should not do what the Democrats have and done over and over: : mash church and State together on this issue. Kerry did it  in the debates when he introduced religion in the discussion of "gay marriage"  as did Biden In the VP debate. Obama rarely included lesbians and gays in his public announcements and has never supported same sex civil marriage. Now that he is elected its time to turn up the heat. Clinton ditto, Edwards ditto , Dean ditto.

Liberals always use political expediency to step aside from taking a principal stand on this basic civil rights issue. 

The Bill of Rights and the Constitution are clear .. equal opportunity for life liberty and the  persuit of happiness .... and equal protection under the law.

AND WHY NO PROTEST AT EVEN PUTTING BASIC CIVIL RIGHTS UP FOR REFERENDUM?

Same sex civil marriage is NOT a radical idea. Same sex erotic love is.

So who decided to bring god and religion into this demo?. 

The Churches are free to do or not do what ever rituals they wish. Repeat: SAME SEX CIVIL MARRIAGE is NOT a RELIGIOUS ISSUE... and could we please stop using the tabloid defined language (gay marriage) and use  language which is clear about what we are demanding???? 

SAME SEX CIVIL MARRIAGE

See yo Wednesday!
