Posting this link: Greene Vs. Sonoma County...Why Marriage Equality? to get the word out that this sort of behavior is not acceptable. Read the story and understand that this is about more than rights for homosexuals, it is about the right of every American to have their wishes honored if they do the right things to ensure that those wishes are known. As someone who routinely operates in my husband's place via POA, and has gone though the effort of writing out wills, medical directives and so on, I can not even imagine what it would be like to just have the state override those wishes. I just figure if they can do it to these guys (ignoring the fact that this borders on hate crime, lets just for a minute assume that the "gay issue" is not an issue) then they can do it to any unmarried couple. Probably any married one for that matter if they find these legal loopholes. If following the letter of the law can not gain you the protection of the law, where does that leave us?
