A titillating question

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 8-117
Has the CA Supreme Court already said they'd throw out Prop 8? [PHB]

*Note: It should be noted that this speaks to statutory, not constitutional, amendments. However, there are some who think that this still speaks to the court's views.

Your thoughts

Unfortunately, Prop 8 was a constitutional amendment initiative, not a statutory initiative, so the short answer is "no," they haven't already thrown it out.

"Apartheid" = "Two peoples occupying the same land but completely separated from each other with one totally dominant and suppressing violence by depriving the other of their basic human rights...prescribing permanent second-class status for...a dual society" --Jimmy Carter in his celebrated book, Palestine Peace Not Apartheid, 2006
"Apartheid makes you doubt that you are a child of God when you are subjected to treatment that begins to work in the end, and you begin to say 'Maybe they are right.' Language is very powerful. Language does not just describe reality. Language creates reality it describes. So when they call you a 'non-European' or a 'non-this,' you might think it is not working on you, but--in fact, it is corrosive of your self-image. You end up wondering whether you are actually as human as others."
--Bishop Desmond Tutu, interview with PBS Bill Moyers, 1999
