Off Beat: Judge Overturns Prop 8

Proposition 8, the ban on same sex marriage has been overturned by a judge. The judge put a stay on the decision, meaning it hasn’t gone into effect yet. Apparently, an amendment to the state’s constitution can’t be used to strip rights away from another citizen. Who knew?
Apple, Google, Yahoo, many celebrities, and many people of California tried to fight this. However, misleading ads, and misinformed voters were able to strip the rights away from the same sex citizens who had only just gotten the right to marry.
It took a long time, but it’s good to see the proposition, which was passed almost 2 years ago, was overturned. Congrats to the couples who now have the right to marry.
