Re-open proposition 8 for California

Californians just voted to take away the rights for anyone to marry someone of their own sex. A petition has been written to re-open proposition 8. You can view it here. If you are a CA resident you can even sign the petition.

The petition lists eight claims that are pure fiction:
  1. Prop 8 doesn’t discriminate against gay people. 
  2. Teaching children about same-sex marriage will happen here unless we pass Prop 8. 
  3. Churches could lose their tax-exemption status.
  4. A Massachusetts case about a parent’s objection to the school curriculum will happen here.
  5. Four Activist Judges in San Francisco wrongly overturned the people's vote.
  6. If Prop 8 isn’t passed, people can be sued over personal beliefs.
  7. Pepperdine University supports the Yes on 8 campaign.
  8. Unless Prop 8 passes, California parents won’t have the right to object to what their children are taught in school.
Again, these are all lies. And most, if not all, of them have been stated on TV advertisements in California up until November 4th.

Go read the petition for the rebuttals.
