California: Support Civil Rights - Vote No on Prop. 8

I don't live in California any more but I'm really invested in the outcome of Proposition 8, which would amend the State Constitution to read: Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid and recognized in California.

There is no reason on Earth to add these discriminatory words to the State Constitution. There is no proof that gay marriage leads to anything other than equal rights for all State citizens. And with the divorce rate at 50% among straights, who are we to say what works in a marriage anyway? Churches and out-of-state religious groups have spent millions to convince California voters otherwise.

Here's 88-year-old Molly Pier's take on it. I'm with Molly.
