If the people are not the Prop 8 proponents then who is? Certainly not the AG at the time, Jerry Brown, he was but one person, not the PEOPLE.

    By the way, I'll see your link and add another link to the proper and legal argument against SSM:

    Joke missed apparently.

    Um.....have you ever heard of changing demographics and people realizing that the Mormon church orchestrated a huge lie on them? Sorry....but marriage equality is supported by huge majorities in California...but you keep clinging to that deceit and propoganda if it makes ya feel better.

    Yes, slowly and surely dying out. It's not an immediate death but a slow and painful one for anti-SSM folks. Have fun yelling at the hurricane lol

    Well, since 2009 CA has lost what? About 2 million inhabitants who fled to Texas, and AZ due to higher tyrannical taxation? I'm guessing that the large majority of them were conservatives, or the kind that would have initially opposed SSM in CA. Just a guess though..

    And almost without exception, those who proclaim their "moral superiority" are almost always the most immoral of all. Bigotry and hatred are not "Christian values" and certainly not Christ-like.

    Wow, because that isn't a biased poll at all....

    Good riddance. There are already too many people in California...we don't need the wacko right-wingers here.
