Please Don't Divorce Us!

"Fidelity": Don't Divorce... from Courage Campaign on Vimeo.

We, the undersigned, share President Barack Obama's view 
that for too long, issues of LGBT rights have been exploited 
by those seeking to divide us. It's time to move beyond 
polarization and live up to our founding promise of equality by treating all our citizens with dignity and respect."

Yet, on December 19, 2008, Ken Starr and the Prop 8 Legal Defense Fund filed legal briefs defending the constitutionality 
of Prop 8 and seeking to nullify the marriages of 18,000 
devoted same-sex couples solemnized before Prop 8 passed.

The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in this case on March 5, with a decision expected within 90 days. 
We, the undersigned, ask that the Court enforce the equality promised to each of us by our constitution and invalidate Prop 
8. So doing will protect all loving, committed couples in 
California -- including the 18,000 who said "I do" last year --
and prevent the initiative process from being a tool for 
stripping vulnerable minorities of precious constitutional rights.

As Americans who believe in the rule of law and fundamental 
civil rights, we know that Ken Starr and the Prop 8 Legal 
Defense Fund's shameful attempt to nullify equal protection 
and all these bonded unions will be condemned in the eyes of
history. We know that, ultimately, love will prevail, no matter 
how hard they try to fight it.
