Although the president-elect opposed the gay marriage ban, it appears his supporters may have helped pass the measure that was vociferously opposed by many white Democrats.Ooops! Still, there's hope, and change too, possibly on the way:
But gay rights campaigners, who spend tens of millions of dollars fighting to oppose Proposition 8, have vowed not to admit to defeat. A petition to dismiss the measure on the grounds that decision of such importance should be taken by state legislatures rather than voters has already been filed to the Supreme Court.That's going to be an interesting argument to make:
"Your honour, the people weren't important enough to make a decision on Prop 8!"
"Hmm, yet they were important enough to vote for Obama, eh...?"
