Last night MSNBC anchorman Keith Olbermann delivered an eloquent and thought-provoking "Special Comment" about Proposition 8 (which overturned a recent California Supreme Court decision that had recognized same-sex marriage in California as a fundamental right). I think it's worth watching.
He says, "This isn't about politics. This is about the human heart. And if that sounds corny, so be it." Watch the video here:
He asks, "Why does this matter to you? What is it to you? In a time of impermanence and fly-by-night relationships, these people over here want the same chance at permanence and happiness that is your option. They don't want to deny you yours." I'm interested to hear your answers. The delightfully opinionated iVillage community clearly has a lot to say about this issue, which they did right here. But please share your thoughts below, as well.
