I'll have to admit I like this argument for it:
"It protects our children from being taught in public schools that "same-sex marriage" is the same as traditional marriage, and prevents other consequences to Californians who will be forced to not just be tolerant of gay lifestyles, but face mandatory compliance regardless of their personal beliefs."
as far as voting against it this is probably the thing that moves me the most:
"Domestic Partnerships are NOT the same as marriage. Domestic partnerships are just legal documents. They don't provide the same dignity, respect, and commitment as a marriage. In a marriage, a paramedic doesn't tell you that you cannot get into an ambulance with your spouse. Married couples can automatically make life or death decisions for each other in these crisis situations, no questions asked."
I am for keeping marriage as only between men and women. I would vote yes on 8. I think we just need to make it so that domestic partners get the same rights as marriages.
so how can I vote for 8 even though I have friends who are homosexual? it's probably similar to why people I know and love will vote for McCain even though I am on medicare. We are all hypocrites. Ok so it's not a logical argument, but that is just more power for the core.
