Prop-ing Hypocrisy

With the passing of Proposition 8 in the state of California (once known to be a liberal state in my eyes), same-sex marriages are no longer allowed. This includes Catholic or Christian homosexual couples as well.

The last time I checked, homosexuals can be religious and can believe in a god. Most of California has forgotten this. There are homosexual couples that believe they're loved by their god, whoever it may be. To deny them a religious right, a sacrament, is unacceptable.

In the Catholic/Christian ideology, you are suppose to love thy neighbor. Proposition 8 is a slap in the face to every single homosexual couple in California who believe that they were doing the right thing, being good people, loving one another, and staying faithful, to themselves and their god. Is prohibiting the right of marriage, to someone because they love a different gender than you, loving? It is not. It goes against one of the main reasons why religion (more of an ethics code, along with the god mumbo-jumbo) exists today: love.
