ELIMINATES RIGHT OF SAME–SEX COUPLES TO MARRY. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT.
- Changes the California Constitution to eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry in California.
- Provides that only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.
It is my personal belief that homosexuality is wrong. I have never, and never will be ashamed to state that. I believe that marriage should be between one man and one woman. That is my personal belief but I do not allow that belief to lead me into judgment and ridicule of people. My belief does not give me the right to judge how other people live their lives, to each his/her own. I don’t agree with gay marriage; however who am I to say that it should be banned? Who am I to say that gay marriages should not be recognized by the state, by the country, by the world?
Below is the video in which Keith Olbermann shares his views on Proposition 8. It is an amazing video, and Olbermann really gives his own, heartfelt words on banning gay marriage.
