@nony - Like it or not, the repeal of prop 8 in California was bound to happen. There’s no way that measure could have withstood judicial scrutiny – and it would be misleading to assume that it had the backing of the legislature.
Whether you agree with the idea of gay marriage or not, there is no doubt that society has undergone a cultural change in the past fifty years. In some states sodomy is still punishable by death. Other states actually have laws against miscegenation, the idea that people of different races can marry.
Of course those laws don’t actually get enforced. Are these things fair or unfair? I suppose it depends on your personal beliefs. But the times, they are changing.
