Prop 8 Ruling

Yesterday, a judge in California ruled that Proposition 8, which California voters approved to ban gay-marriage, was unconstitutional. I am passing along a blog post by Sullivan that contains an easy to understand synopsis of the ruling. To summarize, it is a very well-reasoned and intelligent argument against the law which will be difficult for the SCOTUS to overturn without having Justices Kennedy and Scalia do a complete 180 from previously written opinions.

Suffice it to say it was a momentous occasion for the gay rights movement and I could not be happier with the result.
