20 20 on Prop 8

Surina Khan of Public Eye and the Women's Foundation of California examines the mechanics of California's fundamentalist Christian Right electoral tactics and political strategy. While the Mormons took the heat for the Christian bigots Prop 8 success, Khan observes that the Catholic church played an even larger role, especially among the Latino population. Looking to the future, Khan notes that the vastly superior planning, organizing and fundraising made possible by the multi-ethnic Christian coalition of fundamentalists in California bodes ill for many progressive issues.
