Prop 8 -- What's at Stake
In August 2010, the US 9th Circuit Court ruled that
Prop 8 violates the 14th Amendment of the
U.S. Constitution. The 14th Amendment, established upon the abolition of
slavery, prohibits any state from enacting laws that infringe upon the due
process and equal protection of its citizens. This ruling is being appealed
December 6th with a decision announced in early 2011. Based on the merits of the
case, there is a high probability that Prop 8 will remain overturned with
marriages of male couples and female couples resuming. This federal ruling has
huge legal implications nationwide. Emotions run high. Prop 8 continues to be
the most contested initiative in US history.

Learn to be a voice of reconciliation.
