A recent poll is showing that the ballot measure in California to ban gay marriage is gaining support. I’m going to find this thing totally depressing if it passes. If you’re inclined to make a donation against Prop 8 do consider visiting the No on 8 website. If the proposition does pass, the one redeeming thought will be that the ban won’t last forever. It’s only a matter of time. People have seen here and in Massachusetts that it’s not the end of the world to allow people to marry whomever they want. Life continues on and the supposed dire consequences never materialize. Once gay marriage became legal in Massachusetts it became too late to ever go back. It may take months or years or decades more but it’s inevitable.
