With 39% of precincts in California reporting, Proposition 8’s yeas remain greater than its nays. There’s no telling if that lead will hold. I pray it doesn’t. But we won’t know for certain until tomorrow.
Update: I wish I had better news to report, but I see little hope of gay couple’s marriages being protected against the outright hatred or fear-based ignorance of a small but significant majority of California voters. As a former Californian, I had hoped for better from my old state. As a human being, I had hoped that the gay community, like millions of heterosexuals across the Golden State, could pursue the right to happiness as they see fit without codified discrimination standing in their way.
