Prop 8: The Musical

Posted by neuralgourmet on December 3, 2008

Star studded musical to draw attention to opposition to California’s Proposition 8 banning gay marriage. Cast includes Jack Black as Jesus (and yes! our nation was founded on the separation of church and state!), Andy Richter and Doogie Howser (I’m pretty sure Neil Patrick Harris just gave up and legally changed his name a few years back).

Just linking to the video because WordPress won’t let me embed the video.

Congratulations, America…

We’re taking a step in the right correct direction. Now, with a left-leaning house, a left-leaning Senate, and a left-leaning President, maybe those who are different from the midde-class, white, heterosexual Christians will get a chance to shine, or even live their life the way they want to.

We still have a long way to go. As of 10:30 AM on November 5th, CNN is predicting that California’s Proposition 8 will be passed (It’s 52% to 48% with 95% precints reporting), effectively taking away the already exisiting rights of same-sex couples to get married. As MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow pointed out last night, Californians have already had the chance to see same-sex marriages, and this didn’t affect the general population adversely in any way, but they’re still going to yank it out from underneath them. The same goes for Arizona’s Proposition 102 and Florida’s Amendment 2, denying same-sex couples any legal recognition of their relationships. Likewise, shame on you, Arkansas, for denying gay couples the right to adopt a child.

So celebrate our new president, celebrate the fact that Indiana seems to have gone blue, but then throw away the champagne bottles and realize that we have a lot of work to do to ensure that everyone has the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
