Bigotry alive and well in CA

As I celebrate Obama's and all of our victory in the presidential race, my heart is heavy as I watch the numbers around Proposition 8, which confirms that over half our voting population is in favor of discrimination against homosexuals. This is a sad day for human and civil rights and a blow to the separation of church and state, one of the most important pieces of the legacy of our forefathers. As a straight, married person, I feel my own marriage is tarnished by this cruel, bigoted proposition and if I had it to do over again I would not marry until this group was included under the umbrella of human rights. I look forward to the inevitable challenge to this unlawful and unconstitutional proposition and will support the efforts to bring it down, which will one day prevail just as Obama's election demonstrates that human rights and justice will always triumph in the end.
