I recently read a news story regarding the Individual Freedom award being given to Senator Robert Venables of Sussex County.
This was shocking to me. Senator Venables, identified as an outspoken Christian opposed to gay rights, for years, tabled HB-99 while I was a Delaware resident.
I met my spouse and moved to Cape May County in New Jersey in 2002. We were immediately civil unioned in Vermont, married in Canada in 2003 and filed for domestic partnership in New Jersey once laws allowed us to do so.
It is in New Jersey that we, for years, have been equally protected with all citizens of the Garden State in regard to anti-discrimination laws in housing and employment.
Delaware is a nice place with warm people. The decision to grant Senator Venables the Individual Freedom Award is a reminder that some of Delaware's politicians will be recognized and honored for their support of keeping some of their citizens separate but equal in 2005.
Please find enclosed my payment for another season of Letters. It is and always has been the highlight of my trip to the mailbox. Keep up your wonderful work and as always best wishes to you and yours and your beautiful town.
