I am proud of the justice that was exemplified today. The voice of the people was upheld by the 7 justices. I know the world was waiting to hear the verdict of Prop. 8 and now the world knows that although California may have many other issues....we do NOT recognize same-sex marriage.
The ruling wasn't a total success with the 18,000 same-sex marraiges recognized but it is no longer legal, which I am sure will cause more confusion within the state.
As I discuss the issue more and more it comes down to this:
Yes on Prop. 8- people who believe that gay and lesbians are NOT born like that.
No on Prop. 8- people who beileve that gay and lesbians ARE born like that.
And again, EVERYONE in California has the right to marriage.... it just depends on their choice. I am happy to be from California and not from Iowa, Vermont, Conneticut, Massachusettes or any other state that is in favor of same-sex marraige.
