Today Goggle decided to officially meddle with the California politics by publicly opposing Proposition 8 (The California Marriage Protection Amendment).

… we do not generally take a position on issues outside of our field, especially not social issues … However … it is the chilling and discriminatory effect of the proposition on many of our employees that brings Google to publicly oppose Proposition 8. … We hope that California voters will vote no on Proposition 8 — we should not eliminate anyone’s fundamental rights, whatever their sexuality, to marry the person they love.

I guess the right of the people in China to free speech was not fundamental enough for Google to publicly oppose the Chinese Government’s desire to squash it.

I am so glad I no longer live in California.
