SAN FRANCISCO—Gay rights groups in California plan to ask voters to overturn the ban on same-sex marriage they approved last week if legal challenges to Proposition 8 are unsuccessful.

In an e-mail to supporters, Equality California executive director Geoffrey Kors said Wednesday that he and other gay marriage advocates are aiming for a ballot initiative to reverse the ban in two years.

The Pink Mafia won’t give up. That’s why a US Constitutional Amendment is in order

Right, just keep voting until you get the outcome you want. I’m sure you’ll wear everybody out eventually.

Its not a ban... its a constitutional amendment that defines marriage.

Conservatives should counter with a proposal to ban sodomy.

LOL
do they even know that they are making total fools of themselves right now

My youngest at 5 shows more maturity than these homo old lady bullies.

you want your perverted sick twisted sham marriage then go to MA,CT where it was forced on the people by other activist liberal judges.

better still let the north east just succeed and let them have their liberal utopia and leave us all in peace. All conservative there are welcome , all liberals are not welcome you can stay in your liberal utopia so you can screw all that up.

The will of the people is just an annoyance to liberals, especially this “cause”. The more they try to beat down the will of the majority, the more people simply do not like them.

Like most liberals, they NEVER consider the consequences of their actions. They don’t care.

Now that is a brilliant idea.

Can you find a majority that would reject a ban on sodomy?

Yeah, burning Mormon Churches and cursing out blacks will work just fine.

The gay mafia has won SO MANY friends over the last week.

What part of “If it don’t fit, don’t force it!” do these people not understand?

That is correct.
They will have to word a measure to redefine marriage as between one man and one woman to "two persons" or something similar.

My suspicion is they will try to manufacture some sideshow that desperately needs to be addressed, and the ballot measure they offer just so happens to slip in the redefinition.

Perhaps they will say that Mormons are trying to make polygamy legal in California, and we need to tell the Mormon Church “No! marriage is only between two persons.”

It is true, these people will never give up, until they are did in, that is until they destroy theirselves. I think of a verse in Proverbs, “By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.” (Proverbs 16:6).
May we remember, “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall nor inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolators, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind. Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor exortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you.......” (1 Corinthians 6:9-11a).
Yes, it could be....”such were some you.” If they receive the rest of verse 11. To be washed to be sanctified and be justified in the name of the Lord Jesus!

So if they can't circumvent the People, then they'll make them revote. How nice of them.

Actually, this is a good sign. The supporters have doubts that the state Supremes will overturn it.

“If it don’t fit, don’t force it!”

You got that wrong, it’s:

If it don’t fit force it, if it still don’t fit, get a bigger hammer!

>>>Unfortunately, the Extreme Court declared state anti-sodomy laws unconstitutional. We need anti-Insane Judges laws!

They also struck down a “LAW” banning gay marriage 2 years ago... Thats why Californians came back with a constitutional ammendment which basically tells the court “HANDS OFF!”.

So... do the same thing with the Sodomy law..... put it in the constitution.

Parents already have a touchy job explaining sex between a man and a woman and its purpose to young kids, so now do we air movies to kids in school showing what two men do and two woman do and why? These people need to keep thrills to themselves on a sub level.

When I got involved in the Yes-on-8 campaign they assured us that reversing prop 8 would be much more difficult that getting it into law. As an “amendment” to the constitution prop 8 needed a simple majority to pass. Removing it from the state constitution would be considered a “revision” and would require a 2/3 majority in both houses of the legislature and then a majority popular vote.

Right now republican have more than 1/2 of the seats in the Legislature.

At least that is what we were told. I haven't seen this info repeated in the press anywhere yet so I'm a little worried.

Correction, Republicans have a little more than 1/3 of the seats in the Legislature, still enough to keep prop 8 in the constitution.

Good luck with that one. I doubt they can make a positive case to the voters for same sex marriage. If they could have, they wouldn't run to courts across the country to impose it for them.

The Leftist agitators will keep trying until they win. That's how they are successful if they can't get a judge to rule in their favor. They don't care about the will of the people. This temper tantrum by the Left is a microcosm of the Presidential election. One massive temper tantrum by immature brats.

This is how it will be. The evil, once it has tasted blood, will not relent.

The moral compass of the nation has sunk to the toilet and is headed to the septic tank.

Just like all the b.s. EU stuff — make people vote over and over again until you get the politically correct result. If that fails, just do what you want by judicial or bureaucratic diktat.

the MSM is aiding and abbetting the gay agenda here in CA, by their diligent coverage and constant saturation of the news with these protests Without the MSM coverage, we would know nothing about them, for some reason 50-100 gays carrying signs is “Big News”
