Double Rainbow All the Way! Follow Friday: Special Prop 8 Edition

5 Aug

 

So intense!

This week’s Follow Friday post is a little longer in celebration of California’s Prop 8 being declared unconstitutional. I’ve added photos from the past  made bold all the celebratory Prop 8 tweets. This is something that my friends and I had been rooting for, and voting for, for years and let me tell you, victory is sweet. Of course this guarantees nothing without Supreme Court support, but it’s a step in the right direction. I may live in California, but I live in a vastly conservative area where fear and ignorance prevail. People need to realize that separate is not equal. My friend David said it best:

Typically when you’re voting for anything that starts with “Remove the rights of [insert minority here]…” you should put a big fat X on the NO.

 

What is Follow Friday? It’s a Twitter meme that I have taken a couple steps further.  Learn more about it in my FAQ. See my nomination for a Shorty Award for Follow Friday here. You can read more Follow Friday goodness here.

      I have not! Very interesting! It is well known around here that Prop 8 was hugely funded by the Church of Latter-Day Saints, though. So many people support Prop 8 that nobody cares. Sad.
