In the News In a rather unusual move, both Google and Apple have publicly backed the fight against "Proposition 8", both by words as well as by donation. Proposition 8 is an initiative measure in the state of California that would ban same-sex marriages in California by amending the Constitution of the state to include that "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California". Both companies gave out their reasoning for supporting the fight against 'Prop 8'.

"Marriage" isn't a religious act anymore. That lost it's soul the moment government stepped in and monetized it.

People who fight on behalf of "that's the way it's suppose to be" has no basis for their argument, imo.

If you want to preach about gays getting "marriage" than why not preach the bible 100%? We won't even go into all of the things that people do now that do not follow the 'traditions' of the bible ....

Thankfully, California is PROGRESSIVE. Unlike most of the United States.

I will likely be marked down for this but I have to say it.

When you call California "Progressive" what you really mean is California is largely Marxist, anti religion, anti moral, and anti capitalism.

I understand calling people Marxists is not popular, but if you don't believe me, read up on Karl Marx and decide yourself if your views line up.

I may also add, if you wish to expand your horizons, read the book Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.
