New Editorials Opposing Proposition 8

Timothy Kincaid

October 15th, 2008

We have a few additional newspapers who’ve added their editorial voice in opposition to Proposition 8

The Los Angeles Daily News is LA’s smaller and slightly more conservative paper and bases its readership in The Valley and other suburban areas.

The supporters of the ban, which include several faith-based organizations and churches, see this as a movement toward societal acceptance of a group that they don’t think ought to exist. Under the U.S. Constitution, they have a right to think that. But it doesn’t allow them to deny equal rights to anyone.

The Santa Rosa Press-Democrat

It’s time to put this issue to rest.

The court ruled that the state constitution does not tolerate a distinction between unions of opposite-sex couples and those of same-sex couples. And we don’t believe that voters should, as a matter of equity, fairness and decency, go out of their way to rewrite the constitution to create such a distinction.

The Stockton Record

To approve Proposition 8 is to codify discrimination. Californians cannot let that happen.

This is awesome!

FYI… It’s the “Santa Rosa” not “Santa Ross” Press Democrat.


California – Vote “NO” on Prop. 8!
Arizona – Vote “NO” on Prop. 102! AGAIN!
Florida – Vote “NO” on Amendment 2!
Connecticut – Vote “NO” on Question 1!

Also, “Stocton” should be spelled “Stockton”.

Sorry, it’s all my High School Honors English teacher’s fault!
