Absolutely NOT to start another debate, but why are you against Prop 8? I don't know a lot about it, but I have a friend in CA is for it, so I'm curious.

Ok, you asked for it. :) It's a proposition to amend the state constitution, redefining marriage to exclude gay marriage.

What I don't get is that the whole anti-gay marriage crowd is the same crowd who lambasted the typical homosexual lifestyle, back during the aids crisis, for not being monogamous. Now they want the right to get married and that's going to cause society to fall apart?

I just try to see things from other people's perspectives, and this seems like another instance of the church trying to tell people how to live by influencing the government, which is why so many people reject Christianity.

i'm sorry, did someone open up a can of worms in here?:)

i love how every time when i really need a break from studying i get to come to the new and improved zoe hot topics" discussion blog.

i would just add to your comment, jess, that there is a lot of fearmongering going on by the prop 8 supporters, most of which is highly inaccurate. the new york times has an excellent article on this today (though some may also find it inflammatory).

Thanks, Jess. I appreciate the quick response.

Okay so I don't even live in CA and I wrote a Vote No on 8 blog a few days ago. I lived there for years (they tried this once before - anyone remember Prop 22?) and many of my friends still do. On the one hand I don't support it at al based on my personal beliefs. And on the other hand, even if I DID have something against homosexuality, which I don't, I would still see this as a serious glitch in the separation of church & state issue. i don't understand these people - Hey government, stay out of our churches... unless Gays are making us feel threatened, then legislation is the answer! Makes no sense to me at all.

I've just read your last five posts, and my head is overflowing with interesting ideas and writing and you being a goof (which I like so much) and politics and scared cats and, well, what a gorgeous grab bag this place is!
