CALI Rescinds Gay Marriages


Proposition 9 on the ballot this year asked CA residents to consider rescinding, last years recent law allowing gays and lesbians the right to marry.  The fact that it is on the ballot a year after it was passed is  insult enough, but the actual ruling, reversing the previous decision, is even more insulting to Gay's.  

CA voters went out of their way to campaign against gay rights, even more so than the gay/lesbian community did the prior year when the proposition was passed.  Either way you look at it, Cali is extremely liberal, but not liberal enough to actually allow gay marriages consistently.  CA is viewed as a state that leads the way in reform, I wonder which message this will send the rest of the nation.
