Sacramento Bee says No to Prop 8

Timothy Kincaid

October 11th, 2008

Of the fifty largest newspapers in the nation, six are in California. And with the Sacramento Bee’s position on Proposition 8, they are unanimous in their opposition to the anti-marriage proposition. The Bee says:

Just as an individual’s sexual orientation is not a legitimate basis on which to deny housing or a job, it is not a legitimate basis on which to deny individuals the right to marry. Californians should reject the call to amend the state constitution to exclude some people from marriage. That would be a black mark on the constitution, just as past exclusionary acts remain a stain on California’s history.

Vote “no”

The six largest newspapers in California (and the US) are: The Los Angeles Times (4), the San Francisco Chronical (21), the San Diego Union-Tribune (26), the Orange County Register (36), the Sacramento Bee (37), and the San Jose Mercury News (49). See Newspapers Opposing Prop 8.

I found this video very helpful in deciding whether Prop. 8 was right for California.
