Let Freedom Ring

Those of us who feel like all people should have the same rights. Those who are upset by the passing of Prop 8 in California. And others like it, hello Amendment 2 in my own BLUE state of Florida, I'm looking at you here. We'd like to let you know how we feel. The idea started here, where Allen says:

I decided to snap a photo of my wedding band placed on a slightly different finger than normal to express exactly how I feel toward every single person who voted Yes on Prop 8. It’s my personal version of ‘let freedom ring’. The battle for equality changes course but it’s very far from over.

I welcome supporters of gay rights to snap your own photo showing your wedding ring on your middle finger. Spread the word that this fight isn’t over. Whether you’re gay, straight, bi, white, blue or tan — show your support by letting freedom ring on your blog! Please forward this page to any friends and family who may find it of interest.


Great idea Allen. Here ya go!

If you decide to join the movement a list of all the bloggers giving Prop 8 the finger is over here.

I just don't understand how people can be so ignorant...while I am still angry I am truly just sad that people are so insecure, uninformed and hateful.

You know, I tend to vote with my wallet, which means I usually end up voting for a Republican (please don't hate me). I have pinkish skin. I've been married for 16 years, three kids...I'm even in the Junior League. I'm about as "mainstream" as they come.

And I TOTALLY support gay marriage. What the hell is wrong with everybody?! WHY does any person or group think that it is upon THEM to decide who can get married?!

I just don't get it. I really don't. I love the ring idea, though, and will try (when the dust settles) to do it, too. People need to open their eyes and see this for what it is - equal rights for EVERYONE. No more, no less.
