Audio: Ted Olson: 'Civil rights are won...by constantly battling injustice and inequality'

by Jeremy Hooper

"The fundamental right is marriage -- it's not interracial marriage, it's
not same-sex marriage -- it's marriage.
"
...
"We don't allow religion to drive our laws, because that's a 1st
Amendment Anti-Establishment issue.
"
...
"Because it's 'always been that way'
is not a rational basis
"
-Prop 8 attorney (and registered Republican) Ted Olson
