Earlier this year, the California Supreme Court ruled that, under the equal protection cause of the constitution, that it was unconstitutional to ban same-sex marriages. Proposition 8 attempts to introduce a California constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriages.
I, along with the majority of California voters, reject the idea of banning same-sex marriages. The constitutional amendment is being endorsed by religious groups who fear same-sex marriages undermine traditional marriages. I urge a “NO” vote on Proposition 8.
