When I first heard about Proposition 8 being on the ballot in California in the 2008 election, I knew there was only one outcome and we are looking at it. I’m referring to a long battle in the courts to take a good look at the Constitution of the United States of America. The battle has begun. It reminds me of South Dakota’s Measure 11 which was made in an attempt to overturn Roe v. Wade, but failed.
It’s going to be a long fight, but it’s a worthwhile one. When one court makes a decision, it will be appealed to the next highest court until it’s sitting in front of the Supreme Court of the United States. I want this issue of hatred to leave California and step onto the national stage. I’m looking forward to having this become a real national issue. Once it is, the Supreme Court of the United States will look at this and end this public debate. I seriously hope the silliness ends with all of America being able to marry whomever they wish.
Do you think that the people who voted for Prop 8 would have fought as hard had they lost the vote?
