For a Good Time (And By Good Time I Mean Marriage Equality) Call...



The California Supreme court decision on gay marriage was historic, a long time coming, hard fought, and about time.

Unfortunately (and not surprisingly) Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is receiving large numbers of phone calls from the supporters of 'Limits on Marriage' (The constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage in California) about his comment to a group of Log Cabin Republicans that he wouldn't support a constitutional amendment.

We don't want him to go back on his word.

He must hear from us too.

Now it is automated and you will not talk to anyone, just push the number for pro Supreme Court decision.

To vote in support of the Supreme Court's decision on LGBT marriage:

call 1-916-445-2841:

press 1 [for English],
press 5 [for HOT issues],
press 1 [for Supreme Court SS Marriage decision],
press 1 [for "yes" to support gay marriage in CA (or 2 for "no")]

After you've done this, send it on to all supporters you know.

It couldn't be easier to vote... it doesn't matter whether you are in or out of state... please take 15 seconds right now to do it!

Hey- tried calling and when you get to the hot issue option, they did not let you press one. They are making you press 0 to talk to a rep. who then asked me if I was a CA resident.

When I said I wasn't he said I could not weigh in... this was at 12:50 AM Central time. I am not sure what happened, but you might want to check it out and post new directions.

While I don't want to discourage anyone from contributing money, voting, screaming, throwing a tantrum-to insure that the amendment initiative in California does not pass, I think we can take solace in a couple of things.

First, the homophobes are fighting against the tide of history--they will,as these defenders of the old way always do, loose in the end.

The genie is out of the bottle. Yesterday, with the NY governor's executive order and the ruling of the courts in that state--full faith and credit is going to be given to same sex marriages.

In the end, as a pracitcal matter, the law, in all the states, is going to have to recognize the existence of this, whether people like it or not.

And on the California initiative--I think it is highly questionable whether, even if it passed, the California Supeme Court would find that this nullifies thier decision--there is precedent that you can't pull that kind of crap.

And again, as a pracical, if they thought the voters could or would end same sex mariage I think they would grant the stay--rather than let the bueracracy go forward and create "limbo marriages."
