In case you're not aware, there are four legislative ballot questions in November in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington regarding marriage equality.
Being that marriage equality is the law of the land in the State of New York, I don't have much to worry about... (well a little, but I'll get to that in a bit).
But I was thinking about how I can support my friends who are looking to gain marriage equality in these places?
For quite some time, the issue of marriage equality has been a hot button topic for many folks pitting each side against one another. Over the past few weeks though, it seems to be have escalated and seems to be reaching a touchpoint as the Chick-Fil-A controversy ignited a flashpoint where for the first time that I can remember, those who are are the anti-equality side have been given an opportunity to “protect” one of their own... an organization who, through the quotes of one of its officers, Dan Cathy, who stated that his belief in a “Biblical” definition of family. Interesting to note here, that he did not specifically state what that definition was or specifically gay marriage. Notwithstanding, the reactions from both sides of the issue have grown in fervor because of the statements and the ensuing media coverage.
