Proposition 8 In The Courts

California’s dreadful Proposition 8 was approved by voters back on November 4, 2008. It restricted the definition of marriage to opposite sex couples and overturned the right of same sex couples’ to marry in civil ceremonies in California.

Today, the California Supreme Court heard opposing arguments on Proposition 8. The court has 90 days to rule. Rachel Maddow has a very clear explanation of those arguments and the implications of the eventual ruling.

If, like me, you care about the restoration of the rights of nearly 18,000 legally married same sex couples in California which were overturned by Proposition 8, as well as the desirability of all same sex couples to have the right to a legal, civil marriage, you can go to this previous post and follow the links to The Courage Campaign.
