Watching some people jump through hoops so they can (unsuccessfully) avoid the bigot label, is pretty amusing, in a sad, how-intellectually bankrupt-can-they be sort of way.
"I'm not bigoted, I'm just actively speaking out about something that doesn't involve me at all. Also I don't care if they do it, even though the whole reason i entered the conversation was so i could complain about gay people doing stuff 'normal' people do, together."

Can you believe Prop 8 was allowed in the first place? In a state that's primarily democratic?!? I find that hard to believe.

If you understand anything about how money and religion play into politics, then its not surprising at all (hint: Just because you dont live in CA doesn't mean you can't influence CA's election, especially with citizens united, The mormon church had quite a stake in getting prop 8 to pass.)

I don't know how interested you'd be in it, but "8: A Mormon Proposition" is a documentary that does a good job exploring how the Mormon church was involved. Obviously there is more than any one factor, this is a big one though.
