Please Don't Divorce Us

This is just TOO MOVING to keep to myself, so here I am...

Late last year, an organization called Courage Campaign started a photo essay project. This was after prosecutor Ken Starr, on behalf of the Yes on 8 campaign, spearheaded a motion to nullify all the gay unions made from May to November of 2008.


As if it's not hateful enough that Proposition 8 passed, they have to go around and ruin everybody else's happiness as well because they don't fit in their notion of 'marriage'. If only they understand the concept of LOVE...

I digress...

As I was saying, Courage Campaign, started this project to
put a face to Ken Starr's shameful legal proceedings. To put a face to the 18,000 couples facing forcible divorce. To put a face to marriage equality. Because, gay or straight, YOU are the face of the Marriage Equality Movement.
Well, finally, here's the result of their work. It moved me to tears. And I hope y'all see the love in all these people as well.

I feel so sick that there should be people who wish them (and to take it a step further, people like ME) to be separated. I'm disgusted by people's bigotry. I hate it.

But I believe in what the video says, Love will prevail... no matter what people do to us, we will keep on living and loving...
