No H8

I have been wanting to create a piece on the whole gay marriage struggle since the inception of Prop 8. I watched the two sides vehemently argue their points and with sadness and frustration I watched it pass. In my opinion Proposition 8 took something historic and meaningful and changed it to purposely reflect a discriminatory point by disallowing gays to legally marry in the state of California. The new section, 7.5 Article 1, now reads: "Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in the California."

My only question is why? Why does it matter to you? Why is it that you are letting a book or a supposed God dictate who can have equal rights? Aren't we all God's little children? Why the separation and discrimination? I have a lot of thoughts, opinions, and absolute frustration over the matter and am finally getting those emotions to canvas. If anything, it will be a very cathartic process.
