Are You Kidding Me?

AreyoukiddingI haven’t written in the last week because I had a writing assignment in the Cook Islands. Please don’t pity me. It is an idyllic place and one of the few places I have been where I was excited about visiting before I left and the destination exceeded my expectations. Things were peaceful and seemed fair for all. No one appeared to be better off than another. I returned home calm and relaxed.

The vacation was short-lived, now that I discovered that the California Supreme Court upheld Proposition 8 today, the law that contends that marriage can only exist between a man and a woman thereby preventing homosexual couples to no right to the pursuit of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Shame on the California Supreme Court for guaranteeing that some will not have the same basic rights as the majority. It is really tragic and un-American.

During lunch my girlfriend and I talked about how weird it might be getting married in a state where our own guests could come celebrate with us, but we could not celebrate their love with them. Moreover, since when did Iowa become more progressive than California?
