An expected but not welcomed Prop. 8 outcome

While today's 6-1 court ruling on Proposition 8's constitutional standing was expected by Second Thoughts, we're still pretty disheartened by the whole Proposition 8 fiasco and hope it will soon be overturned by voters.

This space's view of the proposition is pretty simple: It sucks.

For a more hopeful interpretation of equal protection and the California Constitution than what was given by the majority of the court, read the dissenting argument by Justice Carlos Moreno. (It begins on Page 151, here.)
