I certainly don't except a "red star" for this one, but isn't it funny that the mayors of two of California's largest cities are both opponents of Proposition 8, and yeah, what's the other thing they have in common? Both cheated on their wives. So much for considering marriage in such high esteem, eh? There's two words for this, one starts with an "h" and the other with an "o." "Proponents of same-sex marriage in the "gay community" and their supporters have to be honest with themselves, it isn't "marriage" per se that they really want. If you can't be honest with yourself, you are not going to be honest with others. Work on that instead of just throwing labels around at people who do not share your agendas. I voted for Prop 8 and for Nader and I resent being called a homophobe. And if another similar prop rolls around in two years I'll vote the same way again. PS: I can't speak for African-American voters, but the nefarious "right," had nothing to do with the way Mexican-American voters voted on this proposition. We voted this way because culturally and historically that is the established norm and that is one of the foundations of modern society.
