California Supreme Court dropped the ball...it's time for everyone else to pick it back up.

As you've probably heard by now, the California Supreme Court ruled to uphold proposition 8 today. In a move that shocked and disappointed many, a state commonly viewed by the rest of the country as more tolerant and progressive proved that the politics of fear and money will dominate policy as long as we, the people allow it.
When organization's such as ProtectMarriage.com (ad 1) (ad 2) are spewing such absurd fear-mongering, lambasting the television with their hate, it's unfortunately not that surprisingly that this has occurred. People are too easily swayed by their television.
I'll leave you with a parody of one of those ads.
