"Fortuna"? Italian?
The gist of the issue is how do we, as a society, define marriage? There has to be "line in the sand" so to speak. Other wise what's the point of the state issuing a license?
Why does the state need to issue a license?

Good, if you donít understand this, then you should not vote.

I could get the majority of brown eyed people to vote on a ballot measure to deny blue eyed people the vote, it would be overturned as unconstitutional ( and rightly so )

Same thing here, a majority voted to deny a minority a right they already possessed, it will and should be overturned.

Yes they took away a right, and now same sex couples that cannot marry now are seeing for equal rights with same sex couples that are already married in California legally right now ( some 18,000 of them )

Prop 8 is doomed, one way or the other.

Either the Supreme Court will get it right and uphold it being overturned, or it will go back on the ballot and Prop 8 will be soundly and easily defeated.

No you couldn't. You couldn't get the majority of brown eyed people to vote on a ballot measure to deny blue eyed people the vote, dummy. You couldn't even get the ballot measure. The state is broke enough without wasting money on your harebrained ideas.

So the color of one's eyes is equatable with one's gender? The "minority" already posed the right long before prop 22, and prop 8.

The purpose of Prop 8 was to correct the wrong of those who defied the voters of prop 22.

If the state didn't require a license to get the benefits that are given to marriage, we wouldn't be here.
