  • They're saying it's still being counted, but it's pretty much guaranteed to pass.

    Booooo on them.

  • Oh, it did pass? Then why do I keep hearing all of these women on here that are sad that we can elect a black president but cannot recognize gay rights? I'm confused. I dont live in Cali though....

  • that is what i said this morning...we can elect a black man into the highest office but we cannot let two people of the same sex get married? i have gay friends and have for many years and some of their relationships have outlasted many others that were in straight relationships. In todays day...marriage is nothing anymore. people getting divorced all the time. or getting annulled right away. some people have 5 or 6 divorces under their belts. So why are you protecting it from gays so bad? think they are going to make it worst? sorry but i dont think its that good anyway!!!!!
