The ballot description for Proposition 8 makes it perfectly clear. Prop 8 "eliminates the right of same sex couples to marry." This is a throwback to the pre-1950s, when interracial marriage was illegal. If making it illegal for your black, Chinese, or Hispanic son to marry a white girl sounds shocking and outrageous in this day and age, why should it be illegal for him to marry a man?
California schools already have a mandate allowing parents to excuse their children from health and sexuality related discussions in the classroom- Prop 8 has no language that would change that. And remember... even if same sex marriages aren't legal in this state, it doesn't mean a teacher can't talk about them! (with parental consent)
No On Prop 8, Equality For All is the coalition that is leading the fight to defeat Prop 8 and defend the fundamental right to marry for all Californians. Help me help them. Contribute to my fundraising page today!
