    Gavin Newsom wants everyone to vote NO on Prop 8 here in California. It's all about marriage equality.

    Are you voting NO?

    It's interesting because I'm definitely voting no on Prop 8 in California. As Gavin said in the video this could set the stage for future states to offer gay marriage.

    http://www.protectmarriage.com/

    Here's what the other side is saying:

    In an innovative "Decide for Yourself" feature, iProtectMarriage.com uses an interactive video quiz that addresses key issues surrounding the Prop. 8 amendment.

    Making it clear that the campaign is (not against anyone), the site challenges its users with information in key areas: civil rights, kids, churches, education, public health, faith and society, showing that Prop 8 is about much more than marriage alone. It shows young people how they can to take action for Proposition 8.

    *This is what I call HATE MONGERING!*

    I am voting no.

    I think it is hard for the Repugs, because their party, McSame and Palin are clearly against same sex marriage.

    Luckily we have a intelligent Governor(Arnold) who is also voting no!

    Brad Pitt announced Wednesday that he's donating $100,000 to fight California's Proposition 8, a November ballot initiative that would eliminate same-sex couples' right to marry.

    "Because no one has the right to deny another their life, even though they disagree with it, because everyone has the right to live the life they so desire if it doesn't harm another and because discrimination has no place in America, my vote will be for equality and against Proposition 8," the actor said in a statement.


    Pitt's donation marks the largest thus far to the anti-Prop. 8 campaign by an A-list celebrity.

    You don't have to be from CA to donate to this worthy cause. The outcome in CA will impact how all other states eventually deal with this same issue. Don't like the conservative bastards take away this right in California. Give to NO on PROP 8!

    It's great to see other states getting involved with this.

    Good news - Prop 8 is going down in defeat with 55% opposing. Let's hope that's the final election results also.

    It makes no diffrence to me at all either way. I never wanted plastic shopping bags, or pokie machines in my state, we got em both, and now we are working hard to remove em both.

    But There is a famous Hollywood dyke, whom has not long wed a new Australian. No sorry she now calls the US home, so she is an ex pat Australian. Anyhow the Hollywood dyke has never been down here, yet feels her marriage to the ex pat Australian, should be recognised down here, if they come down under, it's as two individuals, and not as a married couple, and this is the way it should be.

    Why if a marriage that is not recognised all over the USA, so why should it be recognised anywhere outside of the USA? Even if it become the same all over the USA. It's still only American policy, and why should American policy be forced on Oz?

    Sorry but marriage is a religious service, belonging to str8 people, Oh an Bi's two. I'm a pure homosexual, so I don't want this st8 institution. I have two long term relationships. Why should I pick one of em, and only have one. It's not natural.

    Lets not forget, when until death do us part first come about. If we lived until we where 40. We where very old. so until death do us part, was not for very long. has a lot to do with why it's a failing institution; marriage that is icon_biggrin.gif

    Just because a women wants to join a men's only club, institution. Why should she be let in, just because it's something she wants. Even if she cosmetically get made up to look like a man, she is still a women, and not a men. So it gives her no right in the men's rest room, as it was set up for men only.

    Marriage is a religious institution, set up for str8s.

    How many guys want this just too protect their things. Now that true love isn't it.

    Pluse if I was to marry. It would make 3 fags in the village, and One just could not have that. There is only one fag in the Village,.icon_biggrin.gif

    Well guys, as you know only too well - we don't all agree on everything politically - even in our own parties. The defeat of this bill however - is something we can agree on, as RJ brothers - so to speak. Vote NO on 8 - if you're in California. Spread the word!

    You are welcome McGay..thank you for the support. As others have said here what happens in CA will affect the rest of the nation. Granted we may all not have the same idea of marriage, but in case of emergencies we need all the portection we can get. Yes some states have domestic partnership, but it is not enough. Thank you everyone for your support and lets keep working on this. It is not OVER until after the election. If we want to celebrate after, lets work on it!
