"Proposition 8 will change the California Constitution to single out gay and lesbian couples and eliminate their fundamental rights. This is inconsistent with our values."
So many of us from LDS backgrounds value our own Constitutional protections and believe strongly that the Constitution should protect freedoms, not take them away. Regardless of how anyone feels about marriage for same-sex couples, we know that it is wrong to use the Constitution to treat a group of people unfairly.
The truth is that passing Prop 8 would hurt gay and lesbian couples - our family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors - and devalue their relationships and their lives. Coming from Mormon backgrounds, we believe in the importance of families and want all families to be treated equally and fairly, which includes having the right to marry the person you love.
In these final weeks before election day, the No on 8 Campaign urgently needs to raise money to match advertising that is coming from the other side. Please make a donation and help the No on Prop 8 Campaign defend the fundamental right to marry for all Californians. Contribute as much as you can today!
