Scott Harris is a political commentator and writer, and opposes Prop. 8 for a number of reasons. Ultimately, he concludes that just as Gov. Ronald Reagan once opposed discrimination against gays in the classroom, Republicans must now stand up and defend fundamental rights to marriage:
“2008 is the 30-year anniversary of California defeating Proposition 6, the Briggs Amendment, which would have banned gays and lesbians from teaching in public schools. We were on the right side of history in 1978 and let’s hope we are wise and fair enough to be there again this year.”
Do you agree with Scott that Republicans have a long heritage of protecting the rights of everyone? Join us and vow to vote NO on 8!
