Californians Tell The World They Don't Want Gay Marriage

Californians voted "yes" on November 4, 2008 for Proposition 8, one of the most controversial propositions in the country. According to the Los Angeles Times, the vote was:

Yes 52.5%
No 47.5%
Precincts Reporting - 100%

"We caused Californians to rethink this issue," Proposition 8 strategist Jeff Flint said.
"Eight years ago, Californians voted 61% to define marriage as being only between a man and a woman."

"The California Supreme Court overturned that measure, Proposition 22, in it May 15 decision legalizing same-sex marriage on the grounds that the state Constitution required equal treatment of gay and lesbian couples."

At least conservative voters in California received some solace, in spite of the unfortunate fact that John McCain/Sarah Palin lost the Presidential Election to Barack Obama/Joe Biden. Will the delightful Sarah Palin run for President of the United States in 2012? There is already some surprisingly positive talk about that possibility in the liberal media.

Conservatives, do not lose heart! Instead, continue to instruct others less knowledgeable than yourselves about the merits of being a conservative. Pray that the newly elected President and Vice-President of the United States of America, Barack Obama and Joe Biden, turn out to be miraculously less liberal than we previously thought.
