Freedom to Marry Day

Today is Freedom to Marry Day.   I don't know who chose the day, but I assume that it's not a coincidence that it comes the week of Valentine's Day.

Below is a video that was made by a group hoping to put same sex marriage on the California ballot this fall.  Not all LGBT groups agree that the vote should be so soon after the 2008 loss.  Many are pushing for a 2012 ballot question.  It will be interesting to see what happens if the group gets the million plus signatures to put the question before the voters.

What I find fascinating about this ad is that if it weren't for the same sex couple, this would be an ad that even the Family Research Council would love.  Equating religion with values, promoting multi-generational families: it's all there.  It's clear who the group is targeting.  The question is: will they listen?
