Letter to the Editor: Prop 8

The Cal Aggie Christian Association has long fought for the expansion of civil rights. We fought for racial equality at Selma. During the Vietnam era, we helped students facing the draft. We fought for women’s rights and access to birth control. And now we must speak out for our LGBT community.

We all deserve the right to marry. As people of faith, we are heartened to witness the withering of the stigma of interracial marriages and interfaith marriages. In this new century we are optimistic that we will likewise see a withering of opposition to same-sex marriages. As Martin Luther King, Jr. said,The arc of history is long, but it bends toward justice.

Marriage equality is today’s most important battle in the struggle for the expansion of civil rights. This Christian ministry opposes Proposition 8 because all people, regardless of sexual orientation, deserve to be treated equally.
