Rally

Thursday many of us met in Laguna Niguel for a rally for teachers for PROP 8! We were responding to the CTA's decision to spend 1.25 million on the "no" campaign. It was a great experiance. So many wonderful people together. The story was covered by the OC Register. Check it out!

The reason why Proposition 8 is destined to fail is because supporters of Prop 8 are building their argument on a bed of half-truths, distorted facts, ridiculous exaggerations, absurd scare tactics, and outright lies. You know that, right? You understand that, right? You realize that the TV ads and e-mail campaigns are deceptive, right? Even if Prop 8 passes, it will be an empty victory because it will not have been an issue that was won honorably. If you cheat to get to the finish line, did you really win?

I’d also like to point out that people have a right to their own opinions, but, when those opinions serve to discriminate against an entire class of people, it creates a climate--and a country--in which THIS HAPPENS. It's all connected, whether you choose to believe it or not.

Many people are voting NO on Proposition 8. The measure will be defeated. Learn to live with it, and learn to love thy neighbor--or did you forget that?

The idea that all of our public school administrators are unbiased observers in this election or in our children’s moral education is a farce.

TODAY in our town, a prop 8 sign that was too close to school property was destroyed by two Conejo Valley Unified administrators. It was caught on camera.

There’s no way they can say that they are unbiased in this debate. The ferocity and cruelty shows through. This is who runs our schools. This is the face of tolerance. As much as I would like to believe that this is a rarity, 200,000 stolen, defaced, destroyed and vandalized signs proves otherwise.
