In Harm's Way
SAN FRANCISCO - California's attorney general plans to ask the state Supreme Court on Friday whether San Francisco's approval of same-sex marriages violates state law .Harm: n. physical injury, especially that which is delberately inflicted; material damage; actual or potential ill effect. v. physically injure; have an adverse effect on. I don't see it. However, if that's what you believe, then may I suggest you just get the hell out of harm's way.
The Campaign for California Families has argued that the weddings harmed the 61 percent of California voters who in 2000 supported Proposition 22, a ballot initiative that said the state would only recognize marriage between a man and a woman as valid.[Nitpicker emphasis]
