fighting the marriage amendment, still

I just want to say that I'm not an activist because I think our side will win this election. I'm also not doing it because I think I make a huge difference, or because it's good for me. It's not. I'm exhausted. I get home every night after working overtime and volunteering for two or three hours and collapse. I'm clarifying my reasons here and now.

I do it because it's the right thing to do.

I do it because I want to have an answer someday if Jesus Christ Himself comes and asks me, "What did you do to reach out to the people who the rest of society tried to reject?"

I do it because on April 6th, the day after this vote, I want to be able to look at myself in the mirror and say, "I did everything I could."
