Brief Prop 8 reaction

I'm with Andrew.  While I am saddened by the reality that there is one state fewer where same-sex marriage is legal, the court was right to uphold the results of the election.  As a movement, we cannot fight an election battle, then try to move the goal posts when the result is not to our liking.  For gay marriage to have any legitimacy, it must be made law by legitimate means.

However, I am also happy for the 18,000 gay and lesbian couples whose marriages have been allowed to stand.  Dare I say that the ruling was empathetic?

  1. California needs a constitutional convention to rewrite their constitution to reflect modern times. Government by referendum and legislative supermajority is a recipe for chaos.
