Marriage: One Man, One Woman, At a Time

protect marriageIt's the job of California Attorney General Jerry Brown to name ballot propositions and the one he's picked for Proposition 8, which would alter the California State Constitution to ban same sex marriage, is accurate, though controversial.

Many in favor of Proposition 8 think it should be titled,
Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognzed in California
while Jerry Brown titled the measure,
Eliminates Right of Same-Sex Couples to Marry.
The latter reflects the language of the court ruling legalizing gay marriage in California. Gays have the right to marry and this measure, if passed, would eliminate that.

Proponents of Proposition 8 fell that the word "eliminates" is prejudicial. It seems they don't want voters to know they'll be voting against the right of members of the same sex to marry.

It's ridiculous that the California constitution can be changed by a majority on a ballot measure. The California constitution is not a screenplay. We don't need everyone's "notes." It should not be altered to reflect the whims of American mullahs.
