The measure, Proposition 8, amends the state constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman only.
Supporters of gay rights have vowed to fight the move, saying majority rule should not set the law.
Quote taken from here.
"Majority Rule" is often lifted up by unbelivers as a standard/rule for ethics, but I guess when it doesn't go your way, even this can be set aside. Why not just begin with "Everyone does what is right in his own mind". (Oh yeah, that doesn't work either when other's desires conflict with the individual's desires or well being).
OH, when will sinners find a standard that suits all their interests?
