But that's how it works in several states. That's what Proposition 8 was. It is uconstitutional. But it still happens.

Bruising Gay Marriage Showdowns Likely in Five States

Every time marriage equality has come up as a ballot measure, it has lost. I hope to see a reversal in three of these states this year. The two most difficult to win are Minnesota, with its large conservative Christian base (where the likely-closet case, Marcus Bachmann, has his "ex-gay therapy" practice), and North Carolina, the only southern state that does not already have a same sex marriage ban in its constitution.

This list of groups against the NC marriage amendment includes several religious organizations. Encouraging.

Meanwhile Prop 8 has been appealed to the full ninth circuit court. Having watched the reenactment of the trial, I think it likely that Prop 8 will eventually fall. But justice works slowly.

Maryland is one of the five listed in the article.

I'm hopeful that the vote there will go our way.
