Oh Proponents of Prop 8, how I despise you...

Don't even get me started on Prop 8. Every time I see one of those signs, I get pissed off. The bigots couldn't get their way with Prop 22, which tried to change the Civil Code and got overturned as unconstitutional, for those who don't follow CA politics...And now gay people are allowed to marry in this state because restricting that right was deemed unconstitutional. So, of course what the conservative right wants to do is change to our freaking constitution. A change that takes away a right that gays currently have. It's truly unbelievable. It introduces hate and bigotry into our constitution, and in my mind is no different than, say, trying to change the words "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" or trying to rescind the 19th amendment. I wonder, if they win, if their next step will be to change the constitution to make divorce verboten. You know, because marriage is so sacred that the government should be sent to protect it. I'll remember that next time one of the big Christian Right leaders is exposed as an adulterer. I really just don't think this is what our constitution is for.
