Update About Proposition 8

Flattr this!

In my last post, I wrote about Proposition 8 in California which called for a ban on gay marriages. Apparently the fallout has been terrific. Lawsuits have been filed based on the curtailing of civil liberties that the proposition creates. Protests have been occurring across the nation (even in Salt Lake City, Utah!). The issue will go before the State Supreme Court and who knows, may someday go before the U.S. Supreme Court. If (when) it does, I look to Proposition 8 being overturned. Civil liberties will win the day, just as they did years ago with Roe v. Wade. Of course, we have to get the extreme conservatives off the Court first!
