Prop 8 Repeal Has Been Filed

This week, the repeal for Prop 8 was officially filed in the state of California. It is scheduled to appear on the 2010 ballot. It will have the following language:

"Marriage is between only two persons and shall not be restricted on the basis of race, color, creed, ancestry, national origin, sex, gender, sexual orientation, or religion."

It also states this concerning religious freedom:

"Section 1. To protect religious freedom, no court shall interpret this measure to require any priest, minister, pastor, rabbi, or other person authorized to perform marriages by any religious denomination, church, or other non-profit religious institution to perform any marriage in violation of his or her religious beliefs. The refusal to perform a marriage under this provision shall not be the basis for lawsuit or liability, and shall not affect the tax-exempt status of any religious denomination, church, or other religious institution."

This looks like a great amendment, especially the part mentioning religion. I feel like a lot more people will be receptive to it because of Section 1.
