As a Mom of a young Gay man, who has a beautiful loving partner, I am so angry at the state of CA,.  I just moved from there.  My son and his partner still live there.  I am so sick of the Religous Right making Gay rights their new Holy Crusade.   Shame on CA for banning GLBT persons from getting married!!  And CA is supposed to be such a liberal state.  Huh, not with the Mormon, Catholic, Baptist, Russian Orthodox and who knows what other Churches backing things like this.  Ok I just had to get that off my chest.

Yay for such caring and supportive Moms!! I wish everyone could be as supportive as those of us who know and love and are queer. Perhaps someday.

Hopefully something will be done and the ban will not last for long. We all deserve the freedom to love and commit in every way possible.

*hugs*

Your son is so blessed to have you as his mom!

I have a wonderful mother-in-law, but my own mother, not so much.
