"Okay, I'll just say it, I'm not sure about gay marriage," says a black man.
A woman continues, "...But I asked myself, do I want to change our constitution to hurt Oregon families? No."
An older man says, "With REAL problems, like education, jobs, security, is this really our priority? No."
A narrator chimes in, "Newspapers agree constitutional amendment 36 goes too far. Thirty-six bans gay marriage forever and could even prohibit civil unions."
Another woman has the final thought, "That's why I'm voting no on 35, because unequal treatment doesn't belong in our constitution."
The constitutional amendment passed, with 57% of voters supporting the measure -- as they did in 11 states during the November 2004 election -- but it was the weakest win of any state. Like 37 other states that already had laws defining marriage as only between a man and a woman, amendment supporters feared a court could toss aside the state law.
