    What A Load Of Rubbish

    "Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognised in the state of California" - I'm sorry but WTF?! Marriage should be between two people who love each other regardless of their gender. I don't see why it matters so much about marriage "only"...

    Separation Of Church And State

    I supported Prop 8, but not because I'm opposed to gay or lesbian couples. It's because I think the government should get out of the "marriage" business all together and leave that to the churches/religion.  By legalizing same-sex marriage without this distinction (i.e. Porp 8...

    Hateful Proposition

    Many traditional marriages of today are far from being sacred unions between two people. With the many failed marriages due to promiscuity, the many mothers and fathers abusing their kids, the many cases of molestations in traditional churches that bring people together in this...

    What Hurt Me the Most...

    Was knowing that my mom, who has never voted before, decided that she just had to register so she could vote yes on this stupid proposition.  Both she and my dad are totally against the existance of gays and lesbians.  They think they are an abomination against...

    Homophobia is completely unexceptable.

    I'm pretty lenient about people doing what they want, but if you use gay like it's a synonym for weird or stupid, expect to be at the very least temporarily dead to me and pummeled with a lesson in political correctness.

    A Discussion of the Separation of Church and State

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/geoffrey-r-stone/democracy-religion-and-pr_b_144103.html Evangelicals supported Proposition 8 by a margin of 81% to 19%, and those who say they attend church services weekly supported Proposition 8 by a vote of 84% to 16%. Non-Christians, by the way...

    Discrimination Is Discrimination

    People who discriminate against gays and lesbians are homophobes and that's it. Hiding behind that whole sanctity of marriage thing is nothing but BS. Sanctity my *ss. Anybody wanting to be a permanent couple should have the same rights as any other couple.

    Sad

    I am really sad that this passed. One of my closest friends just got engaged a few months ago, now all of her plans will go down the drain. She is one of the best people i know and i think she deserves to be happy, along with the rest of my homosexual friends. I know a...

    Ironic

    I think it's pretty ******* ironic that we're patting ourselves on the back for electing an African-American president (who I voted for for reasons completely separate than his race) and then somehow we pass a proposition that still denies full citizenship to those who just want...

    It Passed? ****!

    It doesn't affect me, but I'm against anything that infringes an individual's human rights and marginalises minority groups. All I can say is, "Keep going, California. You'll be back in the Stone Age soon!"

    Outsider's Perspective

    I'm not from California. I'm from Connecticut. I'm a little more aware of the political waves of California because I have a few good friends who live there. I was so happy when Connecticut legalized gay marriage. I felt like we were finally catching up with you Californians...
