AFER puts it briefly: It's right, fair, and decent!

by Jeremy Hooper

201010190905American Foundation for Equal Rights, the rock stars leading the charge to rid the world of the discriminatory dung that is Proposition 8, have filed a response brief to the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, addressing why, exactly, Judge Vaughn Walker's lower court ruling should peacefully prevail. Here's a snip, with link to full:

"The district court’s judgment is predicated squarely on the fundamental principles established by the Supreme Court in Loving and its other decisions explaining the constitutional meaning of marriage, as well the Court’s decisions in Lawrence and Romer, which together make clear that Proposition 8 flatly violates the constitutional commands of due process and equal protection of the laws. That judgment—and the injunction against the enforcement of Proposition 8 that necessarily must follow—should be affirmed."
