Prop 8 Goes to the U.S. Supreme Court

For the many months that I have not posted, Prop 8 has slowly been working its way through the legal system.  Just yesterday, the United States Supreme Court agreed to hear the case.  Expect a decision near the end of June.

I am fascinated by the cultural shift over same-sex marriage since 2008 when we first fought the battle to protect marriage in California. I remember my article from 2009 decrying GLAD’s plan to legalize gay marriage in New England by 2012 Look at this map published by the LA Times just last month – THEY SUCCEEDED! Think about all the token gay couples we now see on television sitcoms and dramas. Think about President Obama’s refusal to support the Defense of Marriage Act. So many people have been duped into believing that changing the definition of marriage will have no serious consequences for our society.  It’s just not true.  For those who need a refresher, see this excellent article from Beetle Blogger:

Why Preserve Man-Woman Marriage

Popular it may be, but that doesn’t make it good for society.
