Soon the airways and media will be busy with people discussing the decision of some families who want equal rights and other families with their special rights.

I am hoping that this round in the battle will be more honest, more truthful and handled as adults without name-calling.

Special rights are rights that allow part of the population (heterosexuals) to marry, but not the rest of the population.

Equal rights are rights that should be given to the remaining segment of the population who are denied the benefit of marriage. This would allow adult homosexuals to marry.

We are examples of people with special rights, and we plan to work with any group who will work for equal rights for all. Please join us!
