No on Proposition 8

Seeing how I have never lived in California, I usually do not care how it votes on state issues, but Proposition 8 will have national implications. It is the ballot initiative to overrule the court decision that has cleared the way for gay marriages in California since this last summer. If it passes, that gain will be eliminated. Worse, it will be eliminated in a state that is considered one of the, if not the, most liberal of states (meaning that it will give momentum back to the religious believers who have moved heaven and earth to deny equal rights to gays and lesbians since they became a viable national political movement over the past couple of decades).

Still, not everyone is amused. Here is an enlightening video, giving us all a reason to hope for Prop. 8's demise.

Some Evangelicals are starting to realize they’ve been duped and are recommending a no vote on Prop 8
