LORD, PLEASE HELP US RID THE WORLD OF THIS ABOMINABLE FIDELITY!!

So, Ken Starr (yes, THAT SAME 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? 

Yes, seriously?  Forcibly divorce!!  WTF?  Because the commitment and dedication and love that these marriages represent is just too much for them to bear (or perhaps live up to), I guess.

So now, 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" to help give a face to the fight.
 
Over 1 million people have watched "Fidelity." The more people who see this video, the more people will understand the totally uncalled for and unnecessary pain and the complete waste of time and our and legal resources caused by Prop 8 and Ken Starr's shameful and wantonly litigious proceedings.

After you watch the video, please join me and over 300,000 people who have signed a letter to the state Supreme Court, asking them to invalidate Prop 8 and reject Starr's case.  And, if you so choose, please forward this letter to others to ask for their support, too. 

So, with the economy in the state it is, with the victims of Hurricanes's Rita and Katrina, and the various floods, and tornadoes, and the number of deaths by guns, and the kidnappings, and the child abuse cases, and the domestic abuse and random assaults, and hell, just the damn poverty that still exists in this country, THIS is what Ken Starr feels is the greatest threat to America.

Fucking pathetic.

I just saw that video a few weeks ago and I love it. I think it speaks loud and clear. There is enough "unforced" divorce without adding forced divorces to the mix. Gah.
