San Francisco Chronicle reported In a wide-ranging interview with The Chronicle, Pelosi said she believes some voters might not have fully understood the initiative, which overturned a state Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage
That ruling overturned an earlier proposition when voters said they did not want same-sex marriages.The measure was approved 52 to 48 percent. "Unfortunately, I think people thought they were making a statement about what their view of same-sex marriage was," the San Francisco Democrat said. "I don't know if it was clear that this meant that we are amending the Constitution to diminish freedom in our state."
Which was necessary because otherwise the Supreme Court would have overruled their wishes again.
