2008_11_prop8.jpgWhile the election might just be called before the polls close in California, the Golden State is voting on an issue worth paying attention to: Proposition 8, an "initiative state constitutional amendment" that "Changes the California Constitution to eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry in California" and "Provides that only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California." Recently, same-sex marriage opponents are claiming the Barack Obama and Joe Biden are against Proposition 8 (which they aren't; though they are against gay marriage, they are more against constitutional amendments that would strip rights from people) while Bay Area notables like George Lucas and the Google founders have been donating to "No on 8" efforts. And yesterday Yes on 8 types, in SUVs and vans, yelled hatefully at pedestrians in San Francisco.
