Sore winners in the gay marriage battle
I strongly opposed Proposition 8, the initiative in California that banned gay marriage. It did pass,however, and I concede defeat. I oppose Jerry Brown's attempts to nullify the results of the election. Having said this, I am very upset over a news report that says advocates of Prop 8 want to retroactively ban all gay marriages. Even people already married before the unfortunate passage of Prop 8 may have their marriages invalidated. This should offend anyone with a sense of fairness and decency. What harm has these marriages done to anyone? The term "sore losers" is widely known; perhaps "sore winners" will enter the lexicon.
