Apparently, Gov. Corbett's recent court filing says that issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples “risks causing serious and limitless harm” in Pennsylvania and across the nation. Wow!

I would like to personally invite the governor to come visit my partner and me. I could invite over some of our neighbors so he could see that none of them have suffered any grievous harm by living near us.

Whatever his reasons, the governor is working in direct opposition to a huge segment of his constituents, and I, for one, resent it. My partner and I have been together longer than many heterosexual couples I know.

We eat, sleep, work and pay taxes just like every other respectable member of society. We suffer through the deaths of our loved ones, the same as you.

And we celebrate marriages, births, graduations and anniversaries with our families, the same as you.

I would sincerely appreciate the opportunity to visit with the governor. For it's only through honest dialogue with people he doesn't know or understand that he can learn to appreciate that we deserve the same human rights he and his family enjoy.
