L’Shana Tovah

Have a good year 5766. Tonight begins Rosh Hashanah. May this be a sweet year for all.

As expected Governor Schwarzenegger vetoed the marriage-equality bill last Thursday. He said the people or the courts should decide. What a copout. “The people” don’t support or look out for the rights of a minority. “The people” would have never voted out slavery, or extending civil rights to blacks or Asians, or even allowing mixed marriages. After all, this is all against the word of G-d. It takes true leadership to stand up to a majority and do what is right and fair for all.

But then on Saturday the Governor signed legislation that will strengthen current law that protects lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) Californians against discriminatory business practices. This is the first and most significant LGBT civil rights
bill the Governor has signed into law this year.
Politics is such a dance…couple steps forward, couple steps back.

If ONLY he'd signed it! With us here in Massachusetts on the east coast and you on the west, it would have been such a powerful statement. But it will come, I am certainof that--it WILL happen.

Happy, healthy New Year to you both and to the entire family! And remember not to keep writing 5765 on your checks any more.

He's probably signed it because he knows that there will be a lot of backlash from LGBT people and groups and is still trying to save a bit of his voter polls by saying he isn't a complete d*ck.

BTW, just came by your site and think it is great.

ש ה טובה Shana Tova!
