Good news for supporters of gay marriage: the California Supreme Court has ruled that same-sex couples have the right to marry. The new policy is supposed to go into effect in mid-June.
However, the court gains could be completely wiped out in November. That's when Californians vote whether to ammend the state constiution to define marriage as only being between a man and a woman. If the initiative passes, gay marriage becomes null and void.
Recent polls show that Californians are fairly split on the matter... so both sides are going to be battling like mad.
Countless hours will be spent debating the legality of the court decision, the sanctity of marriage, states' rights, "activist judges," blah, blah, blah.
When it comes down do it, straight folks will vote yay or nay depending on whether they consider gays to be OK folks or irritating perverts.
So from now until November, from Russian River to Death Valley, it's imperative that gays be on their best behavior—no cussing, no belching, no littering, no prancing, no lisping, no skipping, no water sports, no parading around in drag or leather.
Gays should not be too defiant as to upset or frighten the heterosexual majority.
And gays should go to church often to prove they are in touch with American values.
By acting normal and humble, gays may have a chance.
