A vote for Proposition 8 on the California ballot…
Changes California Constitution to eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry. Provides that only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.
The proposed amendment has elicited strong opinions from all sides of the political spectrum and– this being California– a whole slew of famous people weighing in:
Against the amendment:
* Barack Obama and Joe Biden, who would really prefer to not discuss gay marriage anymore until they are safely in office.
For the amendment:
* LA Dodgers second baseman (and Texas resident) Jeff Kent, who started hating gay people when he realized their voices sound like Barry Bonds.
* Out-of-state Mormons, who have pumped over $20 million into the cause.
Who will win? Who spend tomorrow writing a new ballot initiative for 2010? And is Barry Bonds actually gay or does he just have an effeminate voice? Stay tuned…
