    Oh these are VERY CREATIVE! I couldn’t think of anything but “Restore Equality” (I’m not so good with coming up with slogans and such). I love “Gay is the New Black” and “Focus on Your Own Family” — Brilliant–we’ll have to use those in San Francisco this Saturday, if that’s okay with you!!!

  2. achievementgap says:

    Of course it’s ok!!!! They aren’t mine. The two you picked are two of my faves. I also, in the moments I am trying to channel the Dalai Lama, like “Love makes a family.”

  3. Candice says:

    “Keep Your Church Out of My State” depends on how you’re defining the word “state” – Most every other country in the world sees “state” and thinks “nation-state” while here in the US it’s synonymous for “Congressionally represented territory of the USA” and “secular government”.

    But then, I’ve just come out of a semester of international relations, so my idea of how normal people react on seeing the word “state” may be skewed.

    (I wish I could come! I want to give my home state a swift kick in the constitution, but unfortunately am now a registered Virginia voter.

    [My ideal sign would read, “Would *you* choose a civil union? / Neither would we.” on the front and “Separate is not equal.” on the back.])

    You crack me up. I WAS thinking that… duh. “Keep your church out of my STATE OF CA.”

    Funny, because it’s not my normal definition of State. I usually think ‘Nation State,’ but due to the extensive involvement of the LDS Church in the State of CA, I thought, “keep the Mormons off of my state constitution.” LOL. Maybe I will carry a “Keep your Church Out of my State” sign in your honor.

    I’ll add your sign suggestions to the list. Thanks. Wish you could be here too.

    Thanks for all the support!

  6. culturepress says:

    Er… I meant “fabulous.” Me and typos–we’re inseparable…

  7. Meredith says:

    There’s room for Adam and Eve AND Adam and Steve!
