Today = a warm equality sundae. Now to put a Jerry on top

by Jeremy Hooper


"In striking down Proposition 8, Judge Walker came to the same conclusion I did when I declined to defend it: Proposition 8 violates the equal protection guarantee of the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution by taking away the right of same-sex couples to marry, without a sufficient governmental interest."

-California Attorney General (and Dem. gubernatiorial candidate) Jerry Brown


***UPDATE: Contrast this with Brown's Republican rival:

“Meg supported Proposition 8 and believes marriage is between a man and a woman. Meg also strongly supports California’s civil union laws. Today’s ruling is the first step in a process that will continue.”

-- Whitman spokesman Darrel Ng, in a statement emailed to G-A-Y

Don't know about you, but I'm tired of "processing" Prop 8.
