You Can Almost Hear the Wedding Bells Ringing

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”.

Read the NYT’s powerful editorial here (you can almost hear the wedding bells ringing as you read!).
