YES! Prop 8 Ruled Unconstutional!
In a victory for fundamental human rights, a California judge has struck down the ugly measure known as Proposition 8, which specifically discriminates against an entire class of our citizens. (A good analysis of this is here.) Prop 8 forbids gay marriage, an act antithetical to the personal freedom on which our nation is based.
Again: civil rights are NOT subject to the whim or wish of other people, and we don't permit people (ordinarily) to vote on other people's rights for a reason. Let's hope this decision stands up on appeal.
