    well, marc sanford supports the sanctity of marriage amendment which would not allow gay marriages to be recognized by law. the intent being that gay marriage would hurt the sanctity of hetero marriage. however, sanford cheated on his wife with several women which would seem to indicate that he really doesn't support the sanctity of marriage.

    i thought this would be obvious to someone who uses their brain.

    we were talking about gay marriage. my point would be that those who are against gay marriage are hypocrites. i should not have to explain this but i guess i have to babysit here.

    maybe that's why you all prefer long posts. your brains are not capable of figuring things out quickly or with fewer words...like most intelligent people.

    In essense, Prop. 8 creates a conundrum in the state Constitution where you have one clause calling for equal protection for gays, and another specifically withholding rights from them.

    The voters have created their own constitutional crisis - but I'm not surprised, because that's what you get when you can amend your constitution at the whim of any special interest.

    I would also argue that it's inherently worse in California, because unlike other states with constitutional amendments, this actually DID take the right away from a class of people instead of simply denying it.

    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
