THAT WOULD BE A CURIOUS WAY TO START A REALIGNMENT:

Same-sex marriage ban wins; opponents sue to block measure (John Wildermuth, Bob Egelko, November 5, 2008, SF Chronicle)

After a heated, divisive campaign fueled by a record $73 million of spending, California voters have approved Proposition 8, which would change the state Constitution to ban same-sex marriage. Opponents promptly filed suit to try to block the measure from taking effect.

With 96 percent of the vote counted, Prop. 8 was winning by a decisive 400,000-vote margin, 52.2 percent to 47.8 percent.
