This attempt by religious zealots to dictate their morality to everyone comes despite a California Supreme Court decision last May, when, by a vote of 4–3, the Court ruled that the previous statutes or laws that limited marriage to only a relationship between a man and a woman represented violations of the equal protection clause of the California State Constitution. Therefore, the judges held, same-sex individuals (gays, lesbians) have the right to marry is protected by the state constitution.
Ever since the court ruling, conservatives and religious foes have agitated against the idea of gay marriage, as if it represented the coming of the Antichrist. Californians must reject this overt attempt to put a religious agenda into basic state law. Vote No on Proposition 8. Watch the video below, narrated by Samuel L. Jackson.
