No Gay Divorce

My friend Alex posted this video today -

In light of the hateful passage of Prop 8, constitutionally banning gay marriages in California, Ken Starr and other Republicans in the US wish to nullify thousands of same-sex unions entered into prior to Prop H8's passage. No this doesn't affect us here in Canada - but as Pierre Trudeau once observed, when you sleep next to an elephant, you feel its every move. Also, oppression and hate anywhere affect all of us as the human race, and know no borders. So on that front, please watch this video and sign the related petition against nullifying these marriages ... end the hypocrisy of the Republican Party who claim to be defending the sanctity of marriage while looking to end over 18,000 of them in one fell swoop.
