Prop 8 Overturned!

Today, Judge Walker declared Proposition 8, which defined marriage solely between a man and a woman, unconstitutional. Heck yeah!

This is what he said:

“CONCLUSION

Proposition 8 fails to advance any rational basis in singling out gay men and lesbians for denial of a marriage license. Indeed, the evidence shows Proposition 8 does nothing more than enshrine in the California Constitution the notion that opposite-sex couples are superior to same-sex couples. Because California has no interest in discriminating against gay men and lesbians, and because Proposition 8 prevents California from fulfilling its constitutional obligation to provide marriages on an equal basis, the court concludes that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional.”

You read that?

"THE COURT CONCLUDES THAT PROPOSITION 8 IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL"!
