Richmond Free Press Says Vote NO

This week, the Richmond Free Press (a leading African-American owned newspaper) joined the Richmond Times Dispatch in advocating a NO vote on Ballot Question #1:

Ballot Question #1 proposes to ban same-sex union.  It is totally unnecessary. Already, state law defines marriage as being limited to one man and one woman.  It is a political red herring.  It was designed by President Bush’s far rigth supporters.  Their sinister goal:  To divert attention from substantive issues (including the Iraq war, poverty, affordable housing, inadequate health care and education) to turn out conservative voters for this critical mid-term election

Vote “No” on Ballot Question No. 1

  1. even if the state law already defines marriage, why does government want to infringe on ones intimate and persona life r behavior. so what if any two people who live together want to share the inheritance rights with whomever, whenever and however they want. I think that to call their unions or their relationships marriage in the traditional sense is crazy. Civil union, yes, because that gives them the same rights as married couples. The only difference in two adults living to gether and having sex, is that only heterosexuals can reproduce; and in some rare cases they can’t have babies. Whose fault is that…GOD’S.

    So I agree, vote NO. I,m Rev. Dr. Dolores B. Jones. or 804-814-2924
