Fellow readers, in 5 days, you have a huge say in our government – federal, state and local. Aside from the Presidential election, your vote will determine not only the rights of same-sex couples to marry, but also for childrens’ rights to a happy home with a single parent, unmarried couples and/or same-sex parents.
The choice is simple, really. You can choose to tell your neighbors how to live their lives, or your can give them their own options. Being gay or single is not contagious, but ignorance is. Live and let live, and allow others to bring joy to each other and to children who need a home.
Arizona – Proposition 1 (Prohibition of same-sex marriage)
