In solidarity with bookshop and everyone united for change, I'm re-posting this from her journal:

One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws, but conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. --Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I am prepared to disobey the Defense of Marriage Act, and any federal or state amendment to the constitution that the legislature decides to enact, to the fullest extent possible.

Aja's original post is here. Go tell her how much she rocks.

Maybe "disobey" is the wrong word for me, since I'm not planning on going out and getting married. I'm just standing in support of those who want to, even if someone tells me it's illegal.

Remember, not all those who resisted the Vietnam war were actively resisting the Draft. Those who were needed a lot of support from the masses. So the word stands, 'cause positive social change is often made by defying unjust laws (see incredible woman in my icon for an example)
