Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Kudos to President Obama for voicing his approval of gay marriage. It was a courageous act, considering the incredible bigotry and hatred that some people are directing at our LGBT brethren. I hear people use Biblical quotations to justify their positions against gays/lesbians, and it reminds me of the 1960s, when I was a Civil Rights Worker trying to change our treatment of Black people... 

Judges can put aside personal beliefs

Proposition 8 has been debated in court since the 2008 elections. The last ruling on it came last summer by Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker. He ruled that the measure was an unconstitutional violation of gay Californian’s civil rights. The current argument revolving around Proposition 8 has nothing to do with whether same-sex marriage is constitutional or not, but whether the decision made...

Justice Moreno champions same-sex marriage
Justice Carlos Moreno spoke of “The Evolution of Family in California” as part of the Morgan Auditorium Dedication Week on Wednesday. The lecture covered the modern history of family law, including the law governing in vitro fertilization and the evolution of social practices. Moreno, who was appointed by Gov.

Commentary: Marriage is meant to be religious

<i>Commentary</i>: Marriage is meant to be religious
Kristen Campbell, Editor in Chief During one of our weekly editorial board meetings, we were discussing what we would like to put into our “New Governor Wish List.” All of the editors present, excluding me, said to ask our new Gov. Jerry Brown to support gay marriage. I used my veto and said I would not risk my conservative beliefs and did not agree to place the wish on our list. After much unappreciated... 

Commentary: Gays have the civil right to marry

<i>Commentary</i>: Gays have the civil right to marry
Branden del Rio, News Editor Although there was nothing close to it on the Nov. 2 ballot, gay marriage is still an issue that must be dealt with. And by that I mean it should be legalized. The fact of the matter is there is no real argument against legalizing gay marriage. First, there is no point in “protecting marriage.” That is not to be taken negatively, but the truth is that the institution... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, We do not agree with any references in the column “Diversity leading to destruction,” published in the Nov. 6 edition of the Campus Times, that implied that AIDS is a gay disease, because this statement is far from factual. If the author did not intend to insult, we expect a written apology addressing everyone that was hurt. True, Obama did repeal the AIDS Ban; it was not, however,... 

Equal rights take a left in California

Equal rights take a left in California
Editorial Cartoon by Michael Escañuelas Could it be that California is nearing the acceptance of gay marriage? With polls showing a growing support for a repeal of Proposition 8, liberal ideals are expanding with support from our governor. On Oct. 11, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed two measures supporting the gay community. The first created a statewide day of recognition for Harvey Milk, an openly... 

Marching for equality

Marching for equality
Kevin Garrity, Managing Editor A few weeks ago the University of La Verne Rainbow Alliance reminded us all of the injustices gays and lesbians still face today. The alliance protested on the corner of D Street and Bonita Avenue, in regards to last year’s ban on gay marriage in California and the little progress that has been made since that forgettable vote. I hope the Rainbow Alliance will not stop... 

No on Prop. 8 rally sparks support, objection

Julissa Cardenas Web Editor Cars honked, people yelled and some threw water bottles at students protesting Proposition 8, the ballot measure that banned gay marriage in California. The University of La Verne’s Rainbow Alliance sponsored the event last Wednesday on the corner of D Street and Bonita Avenue. The ballot measure was narrowly approved last year by California voters, and then upheld in...
