My 22-year-old heterosexual brother said he don't like the fact that people can vote on if another group should have rights in society. After Prop. 8 passed, my brother said "how in the world do people have a right to vote against another group of people."

Most likely will be the same results from Novemeber. At this point, I don't care anymore. I just feel sorry for the people who have been devoted to each for so many years who are of the same sex that are going to get screwed over because some damn 2,000 year old book, sh*thole morals and so-called Christians and those who want to make the issue of Prop 8 a ''cracka'' one.

@Mel Smith
I agree with your cousin. A majority should not have the right to vote on a minority issue. To make a well used analogy. What if the majority had been able to vote on segregation instead of the legality of it being made a supreme court decision?

Our system is (should be) based on not allowing the opinions of the majority overrule the rights of a minority.

ERA during its initial movement didn’t receive popular acceptance. It took years. There is still work to be done throughout the various corners of the USA, including those who live in gay ghettoes to get out of their comfort zones and live in the open.

More than people who devoted so much time and energy based on a certain interpretation of a 2000 yr old book or the ability of a group of people voting against another, I think it's sad because all of that energy, devotion and money could have been put to better use -- to fight hunger, help people who are losing their home in this foreclosure crisis, finding cure to cancer, AIDS, whatever your mind could think of. But, instead, the prop 8 supporter had to bring this ballot up for a vote, over an issue that is, in reality, astonishingly insignificant for the population as a whole.
