WHO: Ted Olson and David Boies are high-profile lawyers (who worked the Bush v. Gore 2000 opposing one another) representing two same-sex couples who were denied the right to marry.

WHAT: Olson and Boies are challenging proposition 8’s federal constitutionality and believe that it should be repealed. “This unequal treatment of gays and lesbians denies them the basic liberties and equal protection under the law that are guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution,” their suit states.

WHEN: January 11th, 2010 is the set date to begin (keyword=begin these court cases will not nearly be completed over night).

WHY: To finally work our way to full equality rights for all under the law one day at a time.

CONTROVERSY: Some say this is much too soon and that we need to enter the federal issue slowly (as in Brown v. Board, if he had went in any sooner than he did, he most likely would not have won the case). ACLU and other advocacy groups tried to intervene and prevent this lawsuit, unfortunately they were denied any intervention and the case is set to trial. The two prominent lawyers are confident it will pass, so since this is the direction our movement is heading we NEED TO support and back them up 100%!!

PLEASE SPREAD THIS TO ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS- INVITE INVITE INVITE AND GET THE WORD OUT. YES ASK ME TO BE AN ADMIN!

FACT: 70% of our nation was opposed to interracial marriage when Loving v. Virginia passed! It’s time to hold hands and hope our highest courts do the right and constitutional thing.

VIDEOS, LINKS, PHOTOS: Removed to public due to offensive images and unable to remove immediately (I wish I had that time ;), but i don’t) HOWEVER, please send me a message and I would love to post them!

ASK OBAMA TO PLAY HIS PART!
“Federal courts are considering a challenge to Prop. 8 on the grounds that it violates the United States Constitution. EQCA strongly supports this case and has filed a powerful brief urging the court to overturn Prop. 8. The Obama Administration needs to join the fight and stop the abhorrent abuse of the initiative process to eliminate the rights of any targeted minority. I strongly encourage you to sign our petition asking the Administration to file a brief in support of this case, and ask your friends and family to sign it, too.” – EQCA

WRITING ON THE WALL:
All of your comments are greatly appreciated, yes even the controversial ones. Do not respond like they respond… watch your words, you are all so much better than that! 🙂 I know you are!!
That is great thing about freedom of speech my friends– the reason the “not attending” list is hidden is because of all of the confusion that this event does not entail physical attendance and many people are not getting it… despite the fact that a glance at the details will tell you that 🙂 (Don’t believe me? Then why are there so many “maybes”? The number of undecided voters is nowhere near that ratio)
WALL COMMENTS/PHOTOS/VIDEOS THAT WILL NOT BE TOLERATED:
~ Any direct attack at a user (name-calling, threatening, etc.)
~ Any threats to individuals, small groups, and communities
~ Offensive slang terms about the LGBT community, particularly ones that start with an “F” and rhyme with MAGGOT!

Note that all of these are already violating FB terms of service and you WILL be reported!
Please notify me immediately because as much as I try to read each posted comment, I may not get to it in time.

Please message me if any individual comments violate any Facebook terms of use with the following: Name, Date & time of comment, and quote. Thank You.
