California, What Happened?

I never expected California to pass Proposition 8 (a constitutional amendment that overturns the state’s Supreme Court decision to legalize same-sex unions)! You would think that people would have learned from segregation that separate is not equal. This is a simple matter of civil rights. I have no doubt that this decision will eventually be over-turned by the courts. But still sad to see this vote in such a progressive state. Again, religion stands in the way of equal rights for all.

“It’s very unfortunate and embarrassing that the (Christian religion) is in large part responsible for this act of bigotry,” the Rev. Ed Bacon said after his sermon.

California made the right decision today when you understand two simple things:

1. separation of church and state
2. separate is not equal
