A Plea For Reason... From An Unreasonable Man

Whatever your personal beliefs are on gay marriage or civil unions, if you live in one of the states with a proposed gay marriage amendment to your state constitution, I plead with you to think about it logically and compassionately and vote NO!

To support this plea, I provide an analogy (albeit an imperfect one). If your state was proposing a constitutional ban against interracial marriage, would you support it? Sure, politically and ideologically, marriage between blacks and whites (or whites and Asians, or whatever) was not very popular in many states in the '50s and '60s... but just because it was politically unpopular, does not mean the constitution should be used as a tool to interfere in peoples basic human rights. Why is gay marriage (or at the least gay civil unions) any different?

Please, PLEASE be a decent human being and reject these amendments. If you don't, I guarantee you will regret it later.
