I Have A Proposition For You...

California Proposition 8 (and there were others, but this was the one I was keeping an eye on) -- putting a ban on gay marriages -- managed to pass only by a margin of about 52 to 48, although "civil unions" are allowed. And there are three lawsuits lined up to overturn it, so this was not the last word, by any stretch of anyone's vivid imagination!

Eight years ago, it passed by a margin of 61 to 39.

Opposition to equality in the right to marry (and call it marriage) is dying.

If we wait another four years, it will die from sheer exhaustion. Or...what say we run it up to Seattle and put it out of our misery?

In Texas, the ban passed by 70% to whatever. Fortunately, I live close to Austin, the only county in which the ban was voted down. I simply cannot fathom why someone would deny that right to other people. How is it any skin off their nose. In my opinion, this is a matter of imposing church into state.
