As November 4th rapidly approaches, everyone is beginning to consider their vote. Few decisions on state ballots are generating as much emotion as California's Proposition 8.

While California voters remain closely divided on the question of gay marriage, a majority oppose a measure to ban it, according to a poll released Wednesday by the Public Policy Institute of California.


The blogosphere is abuzz over California State Proposition 8. Many ULC ministers embrace the idea of universal freedom.

"See, if I win, if Prop. 8 loses, you get to have your opinion and live your life. But if you win, see, my friends don't get married..." said William Swaim of The District Weekly. "There's only one person who threatens [my] marriage, and he's not gay. He's me."

Derrick Jefferson, of the blog Random Screaming, took matters into his own hands, "when said student came to me and asked if I'd not just participate in his impending nuptials before the threat of them being ripped away and pummeled to the ground, but to officiate over them, I was honored... I encourage you to vote NO on Prop 8."

"The truth is, as far as I see it, that's all there is. It's a moral issue, plain and simple," said Tor Johnson in the blog, Why Do Fools Fall in Love, "... and prop 8, well the polls say it will win. This sickens me."
