Like all equality-minded individuals, I was delighted to hear of federal judge Vaughn Walker’s decision to overturn California’s Proposition 8, the 2008 voter initiative that banned same-sex marriage in the state.
Judge Walker said, that during the two-and-a-half week trial – which was held in January – he heard no rational basis for discriminating against same-sex couples. Today’s editorial in the New York Times says that instead, Walker “dismantled, brick by crumbling brick, the weak case made by supporters of Proposition 8”.
