Casey Pick is a Republican Against 8. In addition to watching her video, read her own words about Proposition 8:
My name is Casey Pick. I am 24 years old, Christian, conservative – and a Republican Against 8. I am also gay. This year, I will attend three of my straight friends’ weddings (with the average age of marriage in the United States being 26, I expect to attend many more in the coming years). Last April I read scripture for one couple’s ceremony. This September I will be a bridesmaid. And on November 8th I will be the musician who accompanies the bride down the aisle.
For me, weddings have always been bittersweet – beautiful celebrations of faith, love and commitment, and cruel reminders of the legal wall that separated me from my friends – until now. Today in California, I am free to dream of my own marriage, and know that it will be recognized by the law. Given the chance, I will vow to love, honor and cherish my wife, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, for as long as we both shall live – the same traditional vow my friends will make, 4 days after California votes on my freedom to marry. Make that day nothing but sweet – vow to vote NO on 8.
