While there is still a battle ahead in California to make sure that marriage equality stays legal (remember Californians, "Vote No on Prop 8"), today a judge in Sacramento has ruled that the current language on the ballot can stay as-is, and hopefully this will influence people to vote in favor of equality.
The language, placed by California's Attorney General states on the ballot that Proposition 8 "Eliminates the Right of Same-Sex Couples to Marry." Indeed it does, as the California Supreme Court has ruled that gay coupled in California do have a constitutional right to marry. Proponents of the proposition, who want to end marriage equality, despite their "one man, one woman" arguments, are afraid the language will reveal Proposition 8 for what it truly is - discrimination.
According to The Mercury News, "In his 8-page ruling, the judge said the title and summary is an 'accurate statement' of the proposition by saying it would eliminate the right of gay and lesbian couples to marry."
