The Fine Brothers Got it Right: Prop 8 Wasn’t About Marriage

t’s likely not news that the California Supreme Court upheld Proposition 8, which bans same-gender marriage in the state. However, as previously discussed, the Court was actually asked the question, “Can a majority amend the Constitution to take away the rights of a minority?”

The Court answered that, indeed, the process to amend or revise the California Constitution does allow for civil rights to be taken away by a majority vote when such rights are not protected by the United States Constitution. The Fine Brothers have been analyzing this scenario since Proposition 8 was approved by voters in November, 2008 with a series of web-based videos showing what would happen if other rights were voted upon.

Top Web Filmmakers Unite for Anti-Prop 8 Web Series

Benny & Rafi Fine (http://www.TheFineBrothers.com), one of the most popular internet filmmakers of all time, have released the first of five episodes in a web series against Proposition 8, which overturned same sex couple’s marriage rights and is currently back in the California courts. The series, entitled “Prop 8: The Web Series”, puts an irreverent comedic spin on the controversial proposition. Each episode presents various rights from the California Constitution, and presents a “What if?” scenario of what it would be like if those rights were taken away. Known for their sometimes controversial brand of satire, the Fine Brothers hold nothing back in making a bold statement for equality for all.
