Vote NO on Prop 8

Hi girls, today we are going to discuss the proposition 8 that despite the fact that many of us who do not live in USA affects us in an indirect way, as it is a struggle for the rights of our community, this proposition is quite insulting and certainly goes against the rights of many gays and lesbians .

The purpose of Proposition 8 is to redefine the constitution of California to eliminate the basic human rights of same-sex couples. They deny responsibility, dignity and respect as a married couple enjoys being part of a marriage.

The campaign "Vote No on Prop 8" inciting to address this initiative and to vote NO on Proposition 8 this November 4.

The constitution of the United States also protects the rights of all human beings living in USA. Proposition 8 is against this fundamental rule, and distinguishes only a group of gay and lesbian people-to unequal treatment under the law of the United States.

As religious freedom or freedom of expression, the right to marry is a fundamental right in our society. Marriage allows couples to legalize their commitment and allows them to take responsibility on each other.

It is important that this proposal does not succeed to protect the right of marriage. It is important to protect the equality, freedom and justice for all.

Many celebrities have donated money to the campaign of NO at this proposition, among them that this Brad Pitt donate to 100.00 dollars to the cause.

the actor said in a statement: "Because no one has the right to deny another their life, even though they disagree with it, because everyone has the right to live the life they so desire if it doesn't harm another and because discrimination has no place in America, my vote will be for equality and against Proposition 8, I will marry, the day that all those who want to marry legally in the country are capable of that."

Another of them is Steven Spielberg, who along with his wife, Kate Capshaw, others have donated 100.00 dollars in support of the cause.

Spielberg and Capshaw denounced the initiative: "By writing discrimination into our state constitution, Proposition 8 seeks to eliminate the right of each and every citizen in our state to marry regardless of sexual orientation. Such discrimination has NO place in California's constitution, or any other."

T.R. Knight has donated 50,000 U.S. dollars, the same amount as that Pete Wentz said: "There are a lot of causes out there -- a lot of 'good' fights to be fought. I think Proposition 8 is pretty lame -- as many others do too. It's (expletive) lame."

Betty DeGeneres, mother of the famous Ellen DeGeneres, who recently married her partner Portia de Rossi, just join the fight against the Proposition 8.

Betty said: "Every mother or father should know that their children have the possibility of marriage. And every mother should have the opportunity to be part of the wedding of his daughter. With your help, we can make it happen."

More and more voices being raised against Proposition 8 that aims to eliminate gay marriage in the referendum to be held in California on November 4, the money raised is being used in sensitizing people about the equality of homosexuals and the marriage between them.

For companies like Google, or Levi's, and directors and actors such as Brad Pitt, Ellen Degeneres and Steven Spielberg have been a powerful united voice. The New York Times, one of the largest newspapers in the United States, said to be against Proposition 8 through an editorial.

It seems that those who are in favor of the proposal 8 have raised about 25 billion dollars and broadcast ads are lies which have about homosexuality as attacking the church and saying that children are going to give a subject of homosexuality in schools (if this is unbelievable ... and lying to donate money to support hatred and discrimination towards the gay community).

Here you can see the video where a voice-over belies all the lies that are spreading about the consequences of legalizing gay marriage. Among the scenarios that are mentioned include the future inclusion of gay studies in schools, or changing the tax laws relating to the churches.

Numerous announcements have been issued against this proposal 8, with the collaboration of many famous and anonymous people, according to the surveys these ads have beaten strong against the previous but need more time on television since it seems that the SI will take advantage.

In one of them (so you can see below) Two women are seeing photographs of a wedding, one of the photographs displayed a lesbian couple at the wedding. and other supports that do not know how to feel about the subject, to which the first replied: "Nothing happens if you do not know how you feel, but do you want to remove rights and have laws that treat people differently?" . To which the answer is obviously "No".

In an interview with Ellen Degeneres on the "Tonight Show" talking about this Prop 8, you put the video of it.

Since LesPlanet you give our full support NO to this proposal and all people who are against Proposition 8 and entitled to vote in the U.S. go to the polls on 04 November and that its voice is heard loud. The result will be that all of California gays and lesbians can marry the person they love and have the same rights as anyone else of a different religion, color or sexuality.
