Opposing an Anti-Gay Marriage Amendment

The Human Rights Campaign needs people to write to their senators to oppose attempts to amend the US Constitution to prohibit gay marriage. They've made it easy with a fill-in-the-blanks page.

I happen to believe that gay people should have the same rights as heterosexuals, including marriage. Even if you disagree with me, though, you may still see the fundamental wrongness of preemptively taking away rights from a class of people, as well as taking away the rights of states to manage their internal affairs as they see fit.

Hearings on this subject are scheduled for 4 September -- just five days from now. It takes a couple of minutes or less to fill out the form and send a letter to your senators. Why not do it now?
