Judge rules against proposition 8

Prop 8: still unconstitutional.

In the appeal case of Perry v. Shwarzenegger, the Ninth Circuit has held Judge Vaughn Walker’s previous decision and maintains that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional and in violation of California’s due process and equal protection rights! Details follow

Don’t get too excited.  The baddies have said they’ll appeal it all the way up to the Supreme Court which means there will likely be a stay on this ruling as well.  And I’m nervous about this case hitting the Supreme Court in its present configuration.

I long for a day when basic equality need not be fought for.  I work to achieve it by fighting against faith, which allows people to believe in gods who command inequality.
