    Maybe we could get them to poll the SCOTUS. Some of them seem to be living in their own world.

    Reporting this kind of news should go along with something like: “Remember: we had very similar hopeful numbers just a couple of months before Proposition 8 passed. A few rounds of deceiving ads changed all that.” Let’s learn from History please.

    sooo they expect Gay people to once again BEG heteros for RIGHTS that should be OURS to begin with!!!!!

    I don’t like reports like this. Live by the poll, die by the poll.

    You can’t have it both ways. Either it’s the constitutional thing to do, public be damned, or it isn’t.

    Disgusted American, you sound like an overprivileged, entitled white person who’s only real problems in life are First World problems.

    Yes, in the real world when you do not represent the majority you have to convince the majority that you are not a threat and it is better to work with you than to annihilate you.

    NOTHING comes to anyone on a silver platter .. except those to those who never had to work for anything in their lives suddenly being faced with the prospect of having to work. Oh, the horrors.

    In the unlikely event that SCOTUS upholds Prop. 8, going to the ballot again will be the only option we have in California to restore marriage equality, so this is good news.

    Zeta: And you sound like a person who understands nothing about civil rights.

    Civil rights aren’t put to a vote. That’s why they’re called rights.

    That is what the supreme court understood in 1967 when it legalized interracial marriage everywhere in the U.S.
    Interracial marriage enjoyed a minority of popular support, but public be damned, interracial marriage should be recognized.
    We have something built into our laws which is supposed to protect minorities against the tyranny of the majority.

    Unfortunately for us as a planet, protection from loud idiots is very clearly still pending.
