California’s Ghost: Proposition 8

Proposition 8 was approved by a majority of voters on 2008, banning same-sex marriage. It was struck down in 2010 by a federal court. Unfortunately, its language is still in CA’s Constitution, which could become a problem should the blatantly corrupt Supreme Court decide to strike down Marriage Equality anytime soon. There’s an effort in Congress to codify marriage equality (Respect for Marriage Act), but California still needs to stamp out the ghost that is Proposition 8. Overturning a proposition is quite hard, as it requires a 2/3rd’s vote. It seems that CA’s legislature won’t put a ballot up to overturn it until 2024, giving time for plenty of money to be raised so that Prop 8’s verbiage can be annihilated once and for all.
