Decision Draws Near For/Against California Equality...

Marriage Equality California?

 The California Supreme Court will rule Tuesday on whether Proposition 8 was a valid amendment to the California Constitution. Dozens rallied on March 30 against Proposition 8 in Sacramento, California to protest the elimination of the right of same-sex couples to marry.

California and the world - With a long and emotional wait (seems like eternity for those who's marriages hang in the balance), the decision regarding marriage equality California is to be made known and law of the Golden State on May 26th at 10:00am pacific time.

With 18,000 same sex marriage's left in a state of "legal limbo," the words out of the California Supreme Court will have many shouting for joy or left devastated.

This whole Proposition 8 mess has left so many feeling hurt and angry and for what? For the rights of hateful individuals to vote and deny or strip away the civil rights of a minority. This is not America.

I truly see this as the battle cry in America. A wakeup to those who have been struggling for acceptance and belonging.

When a group of intolerants can no longer take away the rights of others, than will it truly be a place for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness...

Standing up (ok, sitting down) for our rights!

Keep a smile on your face and love in your heart!
