Today’s letter – Charlton Heston said it but didn’t do it

Dear Governor Schwarzenegger –

Charlton Heston died today.

During his life, Mr. Heston called for privacy and compassion for lesbian and gay couples, saying “As long as gay and lesbian Americans are as productive, law-abiding and private as the rest of us, I think America owes them absolute tolerance. It’s the right thing to do.”

But while he called for privacy and tolerance, he wouldn’t give it by allowing lesbian and gay couples to marry quietly and with the dignity they deserve, fiercely opposing gays in the military and lashing out against same-sex parenting.

As a gay dad, I just want to be as law-abiding and private as the rest of America. The only way to do that is if I have the same freedom as the rest of America – the freedom to marry.

Yours,
