I am so sad.

The California Supreme Court will most likely uphold Proposition 8, a ballot initiative which ended same-sex marriage in that state a few months after it was finally declared legal. This is just plain wrong. Proponents of Prop 8 claim it is the will of the people, majority rule, etc.

Historically, the majority of people have very seldom protected the rights of minorities. This is why we had slavery for 400 years.

The only upside is that the 18,000 some same-sex marriages performed during the period it was legal will likely remain valid, which is the least the Supreme Court could do.
