Jerry Brown Says Proposition 8 not Retroactive

From the San Francisco Chronicle

State attorney general Jerry Brown has said that prop 8 can not be applied retroactively to marriages that take place before the proposition is passed, if the proposition is passed. That certainly won't stop right wing groups from trying to make that argument.

Brown is already on bad with the pro-prop 8 people for the official title his office gave the proposition. The title includes the words "eliminates the right of same-sex couples to marry." Apparently the yesw on prop 8 people aren't happy to call things what they are, they would rather stick to euphemisms like "marriage limits."

I think we all owe Jerry Brown a big thank you for all he's doing! It might just be political grandstanding, but at least he's got the cojones to stand up for the rights of California gays to be married, too bad we can't say the same about Obama.
