California Approves Gay Marriage Ban

California voters reversed a decision in May by the state Supreme Court to allow gay marriages.

Here's the Los Angeles Times story.

The ballot was hotly contested, but the California results follow Florida and Arizona's decision to ban gay marriage. The Miami Herald reports that Florida needed 60 percent of the vote to pass, and 95 percent of the precincts reported, it led 62 percent of the vote. The Arizona Republic reports that Arizona's measure passed 56 to 44 percent

With California's reversal, Connecticut and Massachusetts are the only other states that allow same-sex marriage.
