Equality isn’t just PC or Mac

On Tuesday Jubal over at RedCounty.com whined about the OC Register’s October 1st editorial opposing Proposition 8. Wow! it took him two weeks to come up with his lame defense of writing discrimination into the California Constitution. I think the following PSA’s paint a pretty good picture of where we stand on the issue here at TheLiberalOC (h/t Homotracker.com and our founder Mike Lawson).

    Jubal,

    I posted this in response to Chuck DeVore’s commentary about the CTA contribution to the No on 8 Campaign. It seems as though it is appropriate to post here as well. While I wrote it for Chuck, but I don’t think he’ll mind sharing it with you.

    Chuck ,

    On October 1, 1948 the California Supreme Court ruled in a 4-3 decision that the prohibition on marriage between two people of different races. The court majority in the case, Perez v. Sharp, stated; “The essence of the right to marry is freedom to join in marriage with the person of one’s choice.”

    13 years later the United States Supreme Court ruled in Loving v. Virginia, making all state laws prohibiting interracial marriage void. Had the matter ben put to a majority vote of the people at that time, it would not have passed. This is true of most, if not all, advances in civil rights law determined by courts.

    Mr. DeVore, if not for the advances in this particular area of civil rights law, your friends Matt Cunninghan (Jubal) and Shawn Steel would not have been able to marry their current spouses. What divine right permits your religion to sit supreme to mine and permit your marriage under state law, but not one between two people of different races, religions, or same gender?

    I believe that it was the trial judge in the Loving case who ruled that God had chosen to separate the races of the world on different continents for a reason, and therefore they should not be allowed to marry.

    The precept of “Traditional Marriage” is a myth. It is the same myth that defined Africans as lesser humans.

    Chuck, all men and women are created equal in the eyes of God and in the eyes of the law in California. Are you really so insecure with your own sexuality and in your marriage that you feel it reasonable to write discrimination into the Constitution of the State of California?

    Really, I love you guys. If any of you were even close to my type I would ask you to marry me. XOXOXO
