Even as right wing and fundamental religious forces pump millions of dollars into the passage of Proposition 8 in California which would effectively ban same sex marriage in the state, there has been a resurgence in the popular tide to defeat it.
Since the California Supreme Court ruled that same sex marriages were legal, hundreds of California families have seen their sons and daughters finally gaining civil rights long denied to them. This issues has become not simply a gay issue but a family issue, a human issue.
This is fight is about not eliminating fundamental rights of American citizens. Grass roots efforts can defeat Proposition 8.
Parents of same sex couples have come out in force to urge voters to defeat this measure as seen in recent media releases on TV.
