I realize this post is a bit late after the election, but I just don’t understand how something like Proposition 8 passes in California. California is supposed to be one of the most liberal, forward thinking states in the country, but we passed a totally religiously based law? What happened to the separation of church and state? I beg of anybody to give me a truly valid reason as to how a samesex couple being married could affect anyone but themselves! Moreover, isn’t it a violation of several state and federal antidiscriminatory laws to create legislature against someone based on sexual orientation?
