GREAT SPOOF SIGN FOR MEASURE 36/PLEASE PRINT IT OUT/ PUT IT EVERYWHERE!!!!

Hello all - with 7 days left till election day - I am so sick of seeing those "One Man/One Woman" signs that I think this spoof of it - saying NO on 36 is a great alternative - it also reminds those for Measure 36 that we are ALL HUMAN & should be treated equally.

Please print it out - stick on you car, house, dog, cat, whatever....

Hello all - with 7 days left till election day - I am so sick of seeing those "One Man/One Woman" signs that I think this spoof of it - saying NO on 36 is a great alternative -
it also reminds those for Measure 36 that we are ALL HUMAN & should be treated equally.

Please pass it on & print it out - stick it on you car, house, dog, cat, whatever....
Please get this sign out there....

Also here is a great link to an Op-Ed piece about what "God, the bible, the saints" have said about homosexuality.... Not that I buy into the religion thing but this is a great resource when dealing with people who reference the Bible & "Adam & Eve not Adam & Steve" when arguing their point....

 http://www.nytimes.com/2004/10/23/opinion/23kristof.html?pagewanted=print&position=

"As for the New Testament, Jesus never said a word about gays, while he explicitly advised a wealthy man to give away all his assets and arguably warned against bank accounts ("do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth").... The religious right cites one part of the New Testament that clearly does condemn male homosexuality - not in Jesus' words, but in Paul's... In any case, do we really want to make Paul our lawgiver? Will we enforce Paul's instruction that women veil themselves and keep their hair long? (Note to President Bush: If you want to obey Paul, why don't you start by veiling Laura and keeping her hair long, and only then move on to barring gay marriages.)....
Paul disapproves of marriage except for the sex-obsessed, saying that it is best "to remain unmarried as I am." So if we're going to cherry-pick biblical phrases and ignore the central message of love, then perhaps we should just ban marriage altogether?"

Thank you!
