Ashamed to Live in Wisconsin

Love, Food, and Money

Tonight I am ashamed to live in the state of Wisconsin.

We've joined the ranks of states that have now written into their constitutions prejudice. We've institutionalized discrimination--not just made it legal but mandatory.

It's a sad, sad day for Wisconsin, which has a long and rich history of progressivism, of valuing all people equally.

Our so-called marriage amendment may have passed, but they can't make us believe it. They can't make us believe that people who are gay deserve fewer rights than the rest of the population. We'll fight this. We'll overturn this amendment.

Next time.
