NY Times: Prop 8 “Mean-Spirited”

The New York Times editorial board came out against California’s Proposition 8 today:

California voters will have a chance in November to protect the rights of gay men and women, and to preserve the state’s Constitution. They should vote against Proposition 8, which seeks to amend that Constitution to prevent people of the same sex from marrying.

Whether this important civil rights victory endures is now up to California voters. Opponents of giving gay couples the protections, dignity and respect that come with marriage are working furiously to try to overturn the court ruling through Proposition 8. It is our fervent hope that Californians will reject this mean-spirited attempt to embed second-class treatment of one group of citizens in the State Constitution.

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves…

    If an Engineer Makes a machine operates on 110 Volt and you say that I’m free to operate it in 220 volt , I think the result is clear. Please take care , Take care, TAKE CARE, …

    Jesus, paid a lot for us , and gave us the opportunity to control our selves, let us not neglect this opportunity, as GOD always in our side this make proud of our selfs doing what he designed us for. Finally I’ve a question that may help any one think well “Can you imagine where you have been 100 yrs ago, and 100 yrs after?
