Flight Attendant speaks out about PROP 8, the community, and the job!

Due to the amount of hate mail Angela has received, I have deleted (by her request) the letter that was once posted here. Please note that I supported everything Angela said and I’m saddened that this has happened. In place of Angela’s letter, I bring you a response from John, a good friend and fellow coworker…

First i have to say WOW! I too was very saddened to hear the amount of minorities that came out in numbers to vote for Prop 8. Then I sat down and got angry. How dare they take away something that was mine. As a gay Latin man who’s been a 21 year relationship, I’m not sure I would get married myself. But why should my government tell me that I am not entitled to marry who I love. This is no longer an issue of agreeing to marry or not. This has become an issue of taking away my civil rights as an American who pays taxes and votes. When did love become such a harsh word? Isn’t this world scary enough without us having to define who we love?

  1. First i have to say WOW! I too was very sadden to hear the amount of minorities that came out in numbers to vote for Prop 8. Then I sat down and got angry. How dare they take away something that was mine. As a gay Latin man who’s been a 21 year relationship, I’m not sure I would get married myself. But why should my govt tell me that because who I love I’m not entitled to marry him/her? This is no longer an issue of agreeing to marry or not. This has become an issue of taking away my civil rights as an American who pays taxes and votes. When did love become such a harsh word? Isn’t this world scary enough without us having to define who we love? For any of your readers who happen to be in New York city tomorrow, November 12th, I urge them to come out and protest HATE at the Mormon Temple on 65th and Columbus @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm. It’s time to take a stand NOW!

  2. They DO have a right to marry. They can marry someone OF THE OPPOSITE SEX! This lifestyle CHOICE is an abomination in the eyes of GOD.
