I love you, Jon Stewart. If you love him, too, go here to thank him for defending marriage equality.
As the Courage Campaign emphasizes:
The only way we are going to be able to repeal Prop 8 in California is by having frank, honest discussions with our friends, family and neighbors about the meaning of marriage -- emphasizing the core argument that, in America, separate is NOT equal.Talk to your friends. Talk to your family. You don't need to change their minds immediately, but getting a conversation started is the first step toward understanding and progress.
The more people talk about same-sex marriage, the more likely we will be able to restore marriage equality to California.
The fight is not over.
I love Jon Stewart!! I saw this and got the email too!!ReplyDelete
Its so true, and I hope people finally start to realize it!
I haven't watched Jon since the election, but I am going to program my DVR right now.ReplyDelete
I can personally attest that this is so true. Some people just need a little more exposure to these issues to see that Prop 8 is just plain wrong.ReplyDelete
I heart Jon Stewart. Awesome post on an awesome blog.ReplyDelete
As soon as finals are over I will get back to my regularly scheduled viewings of The Daily Show.
Love this post.ReplyDelete
I have to admit I've stopped talking about this. It is just too upsetting to realize how bigoted and unreasonable some of my friends and family members are. :(ReplyDelete

I heart Jon Stewart!ReplyDelete
Did I tell you that my Grams got pretty pissed at me for talking to her about all this? I think she wanted to disown me and I'm pretty sure she told her co-workers that my soul is going to burn in hell. She even called ME stupid when I graduated college and she never finished high school. Yeah, fun e-mail conversation. Totally worth having it though if she even thought about it for 5 seconds. :)
"semantics are cold comfort when it comes to humanity." Brilliant. Thanks for posting this.ReplyDelete
I already loved him, but that made my heart bigger.
I'm changing my handle to Mrs.Stewart.ReplyDelete
