Firstly, for all you Prop 8 opposers out there living in the Los Angeles area, Obama IS America! will be in Old Town Pasadena tomorrow afternoon at 4:00 PM protesting Proposition 8, and making ourselves available to people to talk about the Prop. If you would like to join us, PLEASE COME!!!

Also, let it be known that Obama himself opposes Proposition 8. No, this is not because he supports gay marriage--Obama/Biden have come out openly against their support of gay marriage, as evidenced by the Biden/Palin VP debate where the subject was raised. The Editor of Obama IS America! is saddened by the lack of support for gay marriage by any major politician, and hopes that this attitude changes in the future. Regardless, Obama still opposes Prop 8 because it is unconstitutional, and is based on the moral convictions of social and religious conservatives, instead of on the principals of equality and fairness that are supposed to underlie the American Constitution and the State Constitutions.

Considering the fact that the Church/religion in general and the state/government are supposed to be separated in this country, and considering that the Constitution is supposed to define and defend human and civil rights and Prop 8 undercuts the (very American) principals of freedom and equality for all, Obama IS America! concludes that:
