Appalling...

This morning, as I reviewed my site, I was horrified to see that one of my sponsored Google ads in the sidebar was displaying a "Protect Marriage - Yes on 8" advertisement. I immediately logged onto adsense and blocked this advertiser so that they can no longer display their ads on my site. For those who are not familiar with Proposition 8, it is a measure on the ballot in the state of California. If Proposition 8 took effect, gay marriage would no longer be allowed in California. So, voting "no" on Prop. 8 means you support allowing gay marriage, and voting "yes" means you want the state to ban gay marriage.
Personally, I do not believe that marriage and how two people feel about each other should have anything to do with the law. Why should the government have to sanction any marriage, either heterosexual or homosexual? But as long as marriage is an issue of legality, I believe that the government should not interfere in the decision of two homosexual people to marry.

I am opposed to same sex marriages, but I'm also opposed to legislation of morality; it threatens my own freedom.
