I have been, and I must say that Prop 8 hasn't got a leg to stand on right about now! I was particularly bafled by 2 things so far:
1. Marriage is for procreation. Really? So then infertile couples, older couples and those NOT wanting kids shouldn't be able to marry either then, right?
2. The Catholic church is ok with men/men relationships as long as they are priests. That just blew my mind!
I will post link to the site I go to for keeping track in reply below.
Oh if you're not aware Prop 8 trial is about gay marriage, which I am in support of.

I am watching/listening with great interest. I agree, it will go to the SC and it does seem to be a repeat of Jim Crow era laws. Pick the group with whom you feel threatened for reasons imagined (degrading of marriages as a result of allowing all to have this right) and persecute them to impose your religiously based beliefs. This is ultimately a religious fight and will fall flat if the constitutional stipulation that no religion will be used as a ruling factor (Christianity is a dominant force, but not the belief system of all) in creating and enforcing laws.
