Where's Your Proof?

Judge refuses to dismiss gay marriage ban suit
He asks lawyers to show how gay unions pose threat to traditional ones

SAN FRANCISCO - A federal judge challenged the
backers of California's voter-enacted ban on same-sex marriage Wednesday to
explain how allowing gay couples to wed threatens conventional unions, a demand that prompted their lawyer to acknowledge he did not know.
The judge not only refused but signaled that when the case goes to trial in January, he expects Cooper and his legal team to present evidence showing that male-female marriages would be undermined if same-sex marriages were legal.

WOW, just WOW! I honestly can't believe that this judge actually asked the question that we have all be asking for so long. It will be interesting to see where this goes. I know I'll be watching!


  1. It's almost sad that it's so surprising to us when an official just does their job appropriately.

  2. I agree. I must say that this was one time I was pleasantly surprised.

    I will really enjoy watching to see how this plays out.
