Please watch the documentary "8: The Mormon Proposition".
I love my gays. Some of the greatest friends I've ever had, and an aunt I am very close to, are gay, and incredible human beings. My entire life I have believed in equal rights for all people. In addition, when it comes to religion I am a devote member to the church of nothing. I align my beliefs with Bill Maher, George Carlin and Charles Darwin.
Regardless, even if you do have a religious affiliation, I feel like it is important for people to watch this documentary. Because despite our differences in opinions on which god is right and who gets to go to "heaven", all people should be standing up for human rights.
That's what this issue is about, not who you sleep with, not who you want to marry, not who you fall in love with. It's about the right to live your life the way you want to, and to not have your life's story dictated by a lobbyist group. It's about fighting hatred, and small-mindedness, and being able to join your life with someone, legally, and enjoying the same freedoms as everyone else.
