I was totally baffled by this as well... California of all places??? If it can't pass there, where CAN it pass??

But I talked to some friends who live there and they say it is because of the huge Latino community, which generally practices very strict Catholicism, who voted overwhelmingly yes on 8.

:(

Add to that heavy campaigning across state lines from Utah, where the Mormon church threw a lot of money into advertising for Prop 8. Pundits are now saying it's probably going to have to be decided by the US Supreme Court.

I would actually like to see it at the Supreme Court level, I think that is when it would be seen as unconstitutional and no state could ban it.

I also read there was a great deal of money thrown in from out of state contributions.
