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 “life liberty and the pursuit of happiness” 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, “Good, that was lame.”
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.
