    So one of my friends just posted a note on Facebook.
    The title of this thread is actually the title of his note.
    Anyways... I find it pretty interesting.

    And as he stated, Proposition 8 was unfortunately passed.

    That's sad to hear on a social level.

    I know, but if I posted it in one of those then not that many people would see it and it wouldn't really get much hype.

    I did a quick scan of those threads but didn't find anything about prop 8 passing, do you happen to know if that's mentioned in those threads eric?

    EDIT
    Yeah I've been avoiding the other threads cause I refuse to get into an inane debate but I did want to know the result.

    Yes, there are over 1,000 posts between those four threads; I assure you, the passage of Prop 8 is mentioned numerous times (and is, in fact, the entire topic of 3 of the 4 threads).

    Anyone know the laws on gay common law marriage? is it not allowed in places that allow common law marriage but don't allow gay marriage? Just a question that came to mind.

    EDIT-never mind according to what I found common law marriage only applies to heterosexual couples

    I think it's ridiculous that the California constitution can be changed by a voter initiative bill earning a simple majority. Amendments to the U.S. Constitution require 75% of all state legislatures to pass it.

    That's no reason to post it here. Thread closed.
