US Senator DIANNE FEINSTEIN tells insecure conservative-right-wing married couples to shut the fuck up, but in an articulate way.

For those crazy right wings here is a reminder of OTHER priorities that people care about (more):

1. Economy
2. Travel Safety
3. Education
4. Universal healthcare

Anyways, here are Ms. Feinstein's fine words-----

Statement of Senator Dianne Feinstein

“Proposition 8 would eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry in California. I oppose it as a matter of equality and fairness.

The right to marry is fundamental. It provides social stability, economic equality, and the ability to make decisions for a spouse in a time of crisis.

If Proposition 8 were to pass, not only would it eliminate the right to marry for gay and lesbian couples, but it would also create a complicated legal quagmire for those who have exercised this right under the California Constitution, as adjudicated by the Supreme Court of the State.

The views of Californians on this issue have changed over time, and as a State, I believe we should uphold the ability of our friends, neighbors, and co-workers who are gay and lesbian to enter into the contract of marriage.

I urge Californians to oppose Proposition 8.”

-Senator Diane Feinstein
