Please Don't Divorce Us...

Friends,

Have you heard that Ken Starr -- and the Prop 8 Legal Defense Fund -- filed legal briefs defending the constitutionality of Prop 8 and attempting to forcibly divorce 18,000 same-sex couples that were married in California last year? The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in this case on March 5, 2009, with a decision expected within the next 90 days.

The Courage Campaign has created a video called "Fidelity," with the permission of musician Regina Spektor, that puts a face to those 18,000 couples and all loving, committed couples seeking full equality under the law.

Please watch this heartbreaking video below. If you have the same reaction that I did, you can help spread the word by sharing it with your friends ASAP -- before the Valentine's Day deadline -- and sign the petition at this site:
http://www.couragecampaign.org/Divorce

The more people who see this video, the more people will understand the pain caused by Prop 8 and Ken Starr's shameful legal proceeding.

After you watch the video, please join me and over 150,000 people who have signed a letter to the state Supreme Court, asking them to invalidate Prop 8 and reject Starr's case.

Thanks ~ Paul & Chris

Dear Paul and Chris:

Just a note to thank you for your always inspiring news. Consider collecting your postings and turning them into a book. Many people, I feel, would find comfort and joy in what you say and do. I celebrate your journey.

Thanks for the "Don't Divorce Us" film.

LOVE the video! it's not too often that something can make your heart burst with pride and break it at the same time. we shall overcome... there is NOTHING stronger than LOVE... fear will never win... fear may cause some bumps in the road, but LOVE will ALWAYS triumph!!!

I hope they are unsuccessful. I can't imagine how they can undo the marriages. You were legally married, they shouldn't be able to erase that fact. I'm praying for you guys!!
