Sound Off

I think it's so sad that Prop 8 passed in California. It's a horrible violation of civil rights similar to what our country has done to other minority populations over the generations. There is a thing called separation of church and state for a reason and that is how we have governed our country for years. There is a reason that marriages are only valid by obtaining a license. It is something that is recognized by the state. Religion is what gives us the definition of marriage being between a man and a woman. There is no law that says a union has to be a religious ceremony. This is why the law gives several options about who can perform a marriage ceremony. I also do not believe states should make the decision alone on the definition of marriage . It should be a decision that comes down from the federal level just as the right to vote, the abolition of slavery and other civil rights issues have finally been put to rest and made right.

  2. Hey Faith,

    I'm the senior producer of Whose Wedding Is It Anyway and I worked on the post-production of the Barloco wedding story in our New York offices. My partner in life and work is Patrick, the field producer from the wedding shoot.

    I came across a link to your blog on another link sent to me by friend and wedding planner Donnie Brown, and when I clicked on it I saw this posting right away and wanted to thank you for being one of what seems to only be a handful of heterosexuals these days who AREN'T trying keep gays and lesbians in the closets, off the pulpits, out of the PTAs and classrooms, and most importantly, from walking down the aisle LEGALLY.

    Good for you - and keep spreading the word of equality - it's good karma! ; )

    Best,

    Jason

  3. Thanks and you're welcome Jason and Patrick! I really hope in the next four years we do see change in our country and there will one day be equal rights for ALL.
