Right Reacts Preemptively to Expected Prop 8 Loss
The decision in the Proposition 8 trial is expected soon and backers of Prop 8 are expecting to lose, which is why they have already filed papers seeking a stay on the decision as they appeal it to the Ninth Circuit.
And Bishop Harry Jackson has already released a statement voicing his outrage about it via a series of Twitter posts:
Prop 8 Decision Threatens Core Civil Right to Vote for Marriage -This is a travesty of justice. The majority of Californians - and two-thirds of black voters in California - have just had their core civil right to vote for marriage stripped from them by an openly gay federal judge who has misread history and the Constitution to impose his San Francisco views on the American people.
The implicit comparison Judge Walker made between racism and marriage is particularly offensive to me and to all of us who remember the reality of Jim Crow.
It is not bigotry it is biology that discriminates between same-sex couples and opposite-sex couples. To make a marriage requires a husband and a wife because these unions are necessary to make new life and connect children to their mother and father.
Judge Walker’s slur will not stand the test of time and history. We demand that Congress and the Supreme Court act to protect all Americans’ right to vote for marriage.
