Rocking lesbian mama Melissa Etheridge put virtual pen to paper today to take on California’s Proposition 8, which hopes to overturn that state’s gay marriage. Writes Etheridge:
I believe in our democracy. I believe in our constitution. I believe we live in the greatest country in the world. I believe that we are as strong as our weakest link and if we deny any of our citizens the right to â€œlife liberty and the pursuit of happinessâ€ then we deny it to all of us.
I will be waking up with my children on November 5th and I will be fixing them breakfast as I usually do. I look forward to telling them that prop 8 was defeated. I am sure my son will say, â€œGood, that was lame.â€
Yes, lame indeed.
If you think Proposition 8’s lame, you should help the “No on 8″ campaign. We bet Etheridge would give you a gold, gay star.
