Keep discrimination off the ballot

As one of your many readers who support marriage equality, I strongly urge all legislators to vote against the discriminatory anti-gay marriage amendment at the next constitutional convention and do whatever is necessary to keep it off the ballot.

The state constitution gives legislators the responsibility to decide what is appropriate to put on the ballot, and I believe it is wrong to allow a popular vote on the civil rights of a group of people. We can’t vote on the rights of others.

This is our last chance to stop this amendment, and I ask you to do whatever is necessary to keep it off the ballot.
