Dear Governor Schwarzenegger –
I am disappointed that you chose to veto AB 43, the Religious Freedom and Civil Marriage Protection Act, but I am not alone.
According to a new Harris Poll, seven out of 10 people said that in the face of verbal attacks they have spoken out for LGBT people.
When the 2,200 respondents were asked why, 6% said their religion forbade them, but 14% said that their religion demanded they speak out for lesbian and gay people under attack.
I am sad that you are one of the 30% that lack the integrity to do what is right. Your veto of AB 43 was not just a slap it my face, it was a kick in the belly of all the people that you are supposed to represent.
