Proposition 8

Apple takes an official public stance on Proposition 8:

Apple is publicly opposing Proposition 8 and making a donation of $100,000 to the No on 8 campaign. Apple was among the first California companies to offer equal rights and benefits to our employees’ same-sex partners, and we strongly believe that a person’s fundamental rights — including the right to marry — should not be affected by their sexual orientation. Apple views this as a civil rights issue, rather than just a political issue, and is therefore speaking out publicly against Proposition 8.

As someone who plans on getting married next year if it's still legal, I have a personal stake in this. I've personally given about $500 to the cause, and I've talked others into helping as well. The LDS church is putting a ton of time and money into making Prop 8 pass. It's good to see powerful organizations on the other side too, but this is going to be a close one. Give money, give time, or (at the very least) go VOTE.
