Celebrate a tremendous victory for love

What a tremendous week! On the heels of last week’s groundbreaking federal court ruling overturning Prop. 8, Judge Vaughn Walker has ruled that “defendants and all persons under their control or supervision shall cease to apply or enforce Proposition 8″ on 18 August at 1700 local time.”

There is a very real possibility that next Wednesday, same-sex couples will again have the freedom to marry in California!

Whether or not an appeals court intervenes before next Wednesday, a serious blow has been dealt to Prop. 8. But we must maintain this momentum and work towards marriage equality in all 50 states.

Send a message to your members of Congress and ask them to help overturn the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).

Just this week:

  • Mexico’s Supreme Court ruled that all 31 states must honor Mexico City’s marriages.
  • Costa Rica’s top court blocked a public referendum on the issue of same-sex civil unions that was promoted by a Catholic Church-backed organization.
  • The American Bar Association, with 400,000+ members, passed a resolution supporting the freedom to marry in all 50 states.

And this is just the beginning. Our rapid trajectory towards a more loving society cannot be stopped. People everywhere are realizing that the freedom to marry is a beautiful thing — a celebration of commitment, family, fairness, and above all, love.

After you send your message to Congress, keep spreading our message of love so that all couples can have the freedom to marry:

Together, we can tear down the walls of misconceptions, intolerance, and exclusion…and spark a love revolution that will reverberate across the land!

In partnership and equality,

  1. Its good to see a victory here. I am hopeful that Standing on the Side of Love will, in even a small way, be infectious and spread. I am hopeful that speaking out for justice and equality will be recognized for what it is- a call to do God’s will, to recognize our common bond and our place in a world that is interconnected and interdependent.

    Thanks Dan for the links!
