Black people, join the civil rights movement of today!

In a sad twist of irony, black people turned out in droves to vote for Barack Obama and achieve a pinnacle in their civil rights movement; yet they passed on the opportunity to support the civil rights movement of today: equal rights for homosexuals. 70% of blacks voted yes on Prop 8 in California which defined marriage as for one man and one woman and strengthens the discrimination in this country against the last remnant of oppressed: homosexuals. Many of them were mislead, by the church, to vote for it. Unfortunately, the church has got this one all wrong.

Christians also should have voted against Prop 8 because it tramples on our right to the separation of church and state. If we force our interprettation of God's law upon society, we open the door for religious persecution- a very dangerous slope in this day when Muslims are attempting to do this in countries around the world. Christians, HEAR ME OUT: Each church/religion must define marriage for itself. The government must protect the rights of its citizens. If we try to force a singe religion's definition of marriage onto the government we are seriously breaching the separation of church and state. I cannot emphasize enough how dangerous this is!!

Finally, fans of the Constitution should have voted against Prop 8 because it is unconstitutional, violating the fourteenth amendment which says that you deprive some citizens of a right that other citizens have: "Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

Unfortunately all three of those groups did vote for it. They were terribly mislead and misinformed. But I am confident, that in time, the truth will come out and Civil Unions will be available for all and every church will be able to define marriage as they interpret God's law.
