The Prop 8 “debate” annoys me – since only time will fix our mistakes – but, Russell Simmons’ Huff Post entry is spot on. Well done, sir!
Unfortunately, most of the arguments against these monumental advancements of our country’s history have been deeply rooted in religion; and in my opinion the misuse of religion. Let’s remove religion from this discussion, and focus on the greatest gift religion has given all of us, the ability to love. And as an African-American, I urge my own people to take a deep look at our own struggles and not wish them upon anyone else. Simply, civil rights for all is about being connected as humans, united, tolerant, loving and brave.
