Celebrate Equal Marriage Victory

Join the GLBT Alliance at the Town Clock Tonight in support of Equal Marriage!
On Monday, March 14, Superior Court Judge Richard Kramer ruled that sections 300 and 308.5 of family law codes both violate equal protection, that the marriage statutes discriminate on the basis of gender and sexual orientation, and that they violate the fundamental right to marry. The Campaign for California Families has already announced that the ruling will be appealed, but we can take this time to celebrate the first ruling by a California judge that discrimination in marriage is wrong. Join The GLBT Alliance on Tuesday, March 15 at 5:30 pm at the Town Clock in Santa Cruz for a celebratory rally.

Re: Celebrate Equal Marriage Victory

I'm glad for this victory! The virulent prejudice toward gays and lesbians and the legal restrictions against them prove that the "separation of church and state" is a MYTH!

The belief that "homosexuality" is wrong is a RELIGIOUS belief. As long as same sex people are discriminated against , it will continue to be made clear that the US is and always has been, a male supremacist theocracy.

The same reasoning applies to laws that keep women from using birth control or having an abortion. The belief that abortion and birth control is wrong is also a religious belief.

The ultimate reason same-sex marriage has the conservative's jockey shorts in a twist is that it undermines the mandate that every women be under the thumb of a man.

Under patriarchy, the ideal human to be is a hetrosexual male.. Against this "ideal" , all other humans are compared and found lacking.
The changing definition of "marriage" has the potential to erode the foundation of patriarchy, the system that oppresses women (regarded as non men) and gays and lesbians (regarded as non hetrosexual people).

Too bad male supremacist religion has such a long shelf life. We no longer worshop Jupiter or Mercury so why does Un Fun DUMB Mentalism endure?
