Don't eliminate marriage for anyone
Both sides on California's Proposition 8, which would ban gay marriage, are unleashing the millions of dollars that they have raised. Below is a pro-gay marriage ad put out by the folks at NoOnProp8.com.
The worst mistake that supporters of gay marriage could make is to be complacent and to assume that, surely, liberal California will defeat the measure. There are many conservatives inland as well as in pockets on the coast, such as Orange County. Moreover, jurisdictions elsewhere, such as the District of Columbia, will be watching the result before they decide whether to move forward with their own gay marriage effort. A setback in California will be a national setback for years.
