Bravo on Judge Vaughn Walker's Ruling on Prop-8


Though not the last word on equality for same sex marriages, judge Walker's overturn of proposition 8 today is a good start towards rectifying on-going discrimination of gays and lesbians in the U.S. Personally, I could care less about the institution of marriage and am often puzzled by the gay community's desire to make this their cause célèbre. But I wholly believe in liberty and the pursuit of happiness, so we should all be allowed to marry, or better yet, no one allowed to get married. And until one of those things happen I will continue to support same sex marriages as a right!

Walker's ruling will not go into affect until appeals are heard. The case may very well go to the Supreme Court and since they picked Bush as the president, I really have no faith they will bring back decency and justice to the U.S. In any case, 10 years from now, this would be as laughable as anti-miscegenation laws are now. The last of these laws was struck down only in 1967 with Loving v. Virginia.
