So Shines A Good Deed In A Weary World

Today a tiny bit of my faith in humanity was restored when Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker ruled that California's Proposition 8 is unconstitutional. Of course there are already appeals, which was expected regardless of the decision. This will end up at the U.S. Supreme Court, and it is a hopeful waiting game for which I now hunker down. I do wonder as well if the whole "Repeal the 14th Ammendment" folks are also hoping that they deny minority rights while they kick babies out of this country.

"May You Live In Interesting Times" could not be more descriptive.

After the election, I posted this and I hope we can continue to support our friends, family members, and members of our community - the human community.

Fingers crossed for the appeal... do you know when it's happening?

Excellent post J9! We are not dealing with those issues in Canada - we feel very fortunate here where the rights of ALL humans are respected (for the most part!).

There is a stay so that no new marriage liscences can be issued while appeals are being filed. Friday will be a review of the stay to determine whether to lift it, or extend it during the appeal process.

It astounds me that our species has become so argumentative about everything. Why do we always need to be right and other people wrong?
