    For the first time California's majority says yes, according to KTVU television. 51% now say yes to 42% that says no. Coastal more favorite, inner land area, more against. Likewise for non-church goers vs Catholic/Protestant. I hope this keeps in the forefront of the news, I think it helps build the majority who think it's OK. Seems the younger crowd is OK with it, the older are not so.

    Unfortunately, I think you have it backwards (see article here on RJ--a portion of which is quoted below). The initiative is a State of California constitutional amendment to limit marriage to one man and one woman. If the amendment passes, it will override the court decision.

    From the RJ article:

    Californians are closely divided on a ballot measure that would amend the state constitution to ban same-sex marriage, the New York Times reports. The ballot measure is being proposed in the wake of a recent appeals court verdict effectively legalizing same-sex marriages in the state. The May 24th LA Times/KTLA-TV poll found that 54 percent of registered voters would support the proposed amendment, which is likely to be on the November ballot this year.
