Proposition 8 in California
Here in California, where we usually have referendums galore on the ballot, we are faced with a proposition to define marriage as only between a man and a woman. The Prop 8 ads have been full of misrepresentations and outright lies, which are now being refuted by various state officials, among them:
- Delaine Easton, Former CA Superintendant of Public Instruction
- Karen Getman, Partner, Remcho, Johansen and Purcell
- Ted Mitchell, President, California State Board of Education
The majority of funding for Prop 8 has come from out of state. The political calls have come from out of state.
From the Mormon church.
They closed down their call centers late last week in response to masses of calls from Californians who had just learned these interesting facts. Really, if you don’t want to allow gay marriage in YOUR state, then don’t, but what makes you think you have the right to try to influence the voters in some other state?
As one of my conservative friends says, “Focus on Your Own Damned Family”.
For your general amusement, I give you “It’s All Because”.
