Protect all families
I am straight, married and I support marriage equality. California’s Proposition 8 did pass, but the quest for marriage equality will not end.
As long as minority rights are enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, one day same-sex marriage will be legal in all 50 states. This is because it is a civil right based on love, commitment and the protection of families — families that may not look like yours or mine but which are still fundamental building blocks of our society.
So if you are anti-gay, my faith says I can forgive your intolerance. If you oppose redefining marriage for others based on your religion, my response is: “What’s it to you?”

Congrats to Michael Mueller for raising his voice for the truth.
