The Watch

The Watch is concerned about the increasing pressure towards feudalism in the United States from corporations, social regressives, warmongers, and the media. We also are concerned with future history concerning our current times, as non-truths which are “widely reported” become the basis for completely false narratives.

John Locke Supports Gay Marriage

This is the letter I wrote to Dianne Feinstein, Barbara Boxer, and Barbara Lee:

Dear Senators Feinstein and Boxer and Congresswoman Lee:

This letter is to formally ask that you publicly support equal rights for everyone, and make a public statement affirming your support for gay marriage.

I believe that active discrimination against gays and lesbians is wrong. The California Constitution clearly requires equal rights and protections for all classes and sets of citizens. I strongly believe that the recent marriages allowed by Gavin Newsom are in conformance with the state Constitution and that Proposition 22 and the existing California laws will ultimately be found to be in violation of that Constitution. The recent marriages strongly show how desperately gay and lesbian couples across the country desire the same rights and responsibilities afforded to heterosexual couples.

In the words of the Massachusetts Supreme Court, history has shown that separate but equal is seldom, if ever, equal. Please do not support anything less than the right for gays and lesbians to marry; anything less cheapens us all.


John Locke
