    Ther's still time, but its about 9 right now here in CA so I think its unlikely. :mad:

    At least, Prop 4 could get voted against.

    I'm disgusted that it passed. Religion needs to keep the hell out of the Constitution, like it already says it needs to.

    it has nothing to do with religion, a gay couple can not have kids, why bother getting married?

    marriage was set up to keep parents together to raise kids

    So elderly and infertile couples shouldn't be allowed to marry either?

    EDIT: Also, why do people need to be married to have kids? And remember, this has nothing to do with religion. You said so yourself.

    It has everything to do with religion, which is the problem. But we already had a thread on that, so let's just keep this one on the results. :)

    I'm a Pro-lifer who voted no on Prop 4. I have read articles that say it would inadvertently harm parental rights and hurt homeschoolers (of which I am a graduate).

    Disappointed on Prop 8's likely failure. Especially the whole "unfair and wrong" campaign. I honestly can't see what's wrong OR unfair with defining marriage the way it always has been since civilization began. The "for Prop 8" campaign also did some distortion as well, which hurt them. The fact is, Prop 8 is all about 2 things: a definition, and activist judges. Were prop 8 to have passed, gays would have lost absolutely no rights, nor received one minute amount of unfair treatment. And judicial activism would have been put down.

    Regardless, it's the way it is.

    Judicial activism protects the rights of those in the minority. Brown v. Board of Education is a result of judicial activism, so would you want to see that overturned as well?

    I'm shocked that this is passing in super-lefty California...where are all the hippies and socialists?

    Joking aside, it's an unfortunate turn of events.

    Practically the whole bay area isn't reporting yet. SF County has reported 0% as of right now, so there is still a chance.
