Politics: Proposition 8

We have heard a lot of uproar lately over the legislation on the vote in California, Proposition 8. If passed, this proposition would prevent same-sex couples from marrying in the state of California, and only marriage between people of the opposite sex would be valid in California. We have heard many people discussing this from various sides of the stage, and we feel the need to add our opinion, as we are oft prone to do.

If you are living in California and can vote on this issue, we encourage you to think about the issue yourself and vote as you deem best, not according to any political pundits or intelligent, informed canines. But if you are wondering how we would vote, if we were 18, human, lived in California, and were registered to vote; we would vote no on Proposition 8. It seems cruel to vote any other way. Sexual orientation is a personal matter, and the government ought have no role in deciding the morality of the issue. Homosexual couples should have the same rights as heterosexual couples. We understand the religious tenor surrounding the issue, but it seems like the fervor has gone too far. Even if you consider it an egregious sin, no one is preventing murderers or child molesters from marrying.

Quick vote: Let's think about the issues this election. Decide for yourself, without being swayed by those manipulative politicians!
