From the HRC website: "In May 2008, California’s Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples have the equal right to marry under the state constitution.  That decision was effectively overruled when Proposition 8 was approved by voters on Nov. 4, 2008 by a 52.3 - 47.7% margin."

Maybe we're just naive, but we had no idea how and how much pressure was brought to bear on California voters to assure that the Supreme Court's decision would not stand. And much of the information presented to the public in films and written material was patently false. (See http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1484522/. Watch the movie trailer for "8: The Mormon Proposition 2010") or stream the entire film from Netflix.

This obviously has significant implications for all voters in those states where a constitutional amendment barring same gender marriage might be put to a general vote. It behooves all of us to understand the forces behind manipulative lobbying efforts to sway the vote either way on this important issue.

Nice to read your article about this issue. It is really a big issue and there is a need for telling the people the truth. All the rules must be clear and there must not be any ambiguity in the court decisions.
