-California: Google Comes Out Against Traditional Marriage Amendment

by Dr. D ~ September 30th, 2008

 image Google recently came out against Proposition 8, the marriage amendment that preserves traditional marriage in California. Here are some of the comments by Sergey Brin, the Co-founder & President of Google, posted on their official blog:

"While we respect the strongly-held beliefs that people have on both sides of this argument, we see this fundamentally as an issue of equality. We hope that California voters will vote no on Proposition 8 — we should not eliminate anyone’s fundamental rights, whatever their sexuality, to marry the person they love."

Mr. Brin says in the article that they do not usually take positions on social issues but that many of their employees would be affected by the amendment.

Some pro-marriage activists are calling for a boycott of Google and other major companies which have come out against the traditional marriage amendment, including AT&T, & Levi Strauss.

Response: It really is not a ‘rights’ issue. Domestic partners already have the same rights as married couples in California. Also, many churches, unfortunately from my view, provide religious ‘marriage’ services for same sex couples. Prop. 8 will only maintain that the word  ‘Marriage’ would be legally used and preserved for designating traditional unions between a man and a woman.            *Top

    Thanks for visiting Michael

    I don’t think this boycott is going to accomplish anything. To really make a statement, consider following the example of Thích Qu?ng ??c.

    Paul,

    Boycotts usually don’t work, though it did recently work with McDonalds.

    Burning oneself up to prove a point is beyond radical. The best way to respond to this is just vote!
