To me, this says it all:

Prop. 8 Votes by Education Level

Prop. 8 Votes by Education Level

Education is the path to fairness for all?

What makes it even more painful, is that this legislation flies directly in the face of the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Where is the pursuit of Happiness now?

Let me put it thusly:

If these churchs believe so strongly believe that gay marriage is wrong, then they should simply not perform gay marriages in their churchs.  Don’t go telling everyone else in the state that they have to believe the same way.  In fact, it could be construed that this is unconstitutional.

The First Amendment of the constitution states this:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibing the free exercise thereof;…

Now, what if my religion happens to support gay marriage.  This law is now a law that prohibits the free exercise of my religion.
