PROPOSITION 8 RULING ANALYSIS: THE DOMA FACTOR
TrueBlueAussie saidAs much as many want to lay the blame of Prop8 passing on the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints; overlooking it was passed in a referendum held by the voters of CA; the people of CA said no to the proposition of gay marriage. Thus the will of the majority of people must be upheld in a democracy; someone had to lose, and if your happiness relies on beholding some piece of paper, search and dig deeper; try a little harder.
Can you imagine the outcry, if prop8 did not pass, and the people fighting to have it passed kept up their vigilance and fight to preserve the Religious hetrosexual institution of marriage. Those victors would be screaming leave it be, the will of the people have spoken, hear them; let it be.
But since they lost they do not want to hear the will of the people of CA.
I'm so proude and content my happiness does not count on some piece of paper. Not beholding such a piece of paper, has not prevented one from being in a 20+ year relationship, thus being loved and loving another back. This said piece of paper will not help pay the mortgage, or make my relationship any more loving or validated; we are content with the Status Quo; our happiness is not in the hands of others, we hold and own that ourselves, our happiness is not in the hands of voters or government
