    Just to take up the dialectical obligation to present the opposing side in the strongest light possible, let me think.

    One could posit that if you felt that the issue of Marriage Equality was an important one and one you felt needed to be decided by the people rather then a judicial or legislated mandate, the likes of which could cause another decades-long festering schism in American opinion such as what we see with Abortion, you could opt to fund the Prop 8 initiative as a way to get the issue on the ballot in front of all of the Californian voters rather then just the representatives in Sacramento that might be using this more as a political soapbox then earnestly exhibiting the sentiments of their constituents.

    .....that's all I got.  Not my opinion by a country mile but if I had to try and speak up for the other side without an a priori assumption of hate and ignorance that's the best I can do.
