Too 'mo to adjudicate: From fringe commentary to official legal motion

by Jeremy Hooper

If you haven't already heard: Those same forces that have tried in every way to stop gay rights, writ large, are now offensively targeting the life and work of one particular gay man for no reason greater than his sexual orientation.

That man: Judge Vaughn Walker

His "sin": Possessing impressive legal credentials and a Reagan/Bush appointed job that allowed him to utilize his skills while also possessing the gay.

The ask: That Walker's fully fleshed out Prop 8 opinion be vacated because he wasn't into women enough to ever decide with a clear head. Yep, that's right: The callous suggestion posited by folks like Matt Barber has now become an official court request from the official Prop 8 proponents.

The 18 pages in which the "protect marriage" crowd stamps feet/opens eyes regarding their true motivations :

Motion to Vacate

*REMINDER: It was progressives who resisted the "anti-homosexual" Vaughn Walker back when he was appointed, first by Reagan and then by H.W. Bush. How many of us can say we've had our work threatened for being both gay and anti-gay?!
