The lawyers arguing in favour of “Proposition 8”, stripping gay couples of the right to marry in California, have been asked an unfairly tough question:
THE COURT: I’m asking you to tell me how it would harm opposite-sex marriages…
MR COOPER: Your Honor, my answer is: I don’t know.
Ouch. More embarrassing excerpts here.
You’d feel sorry for them, if what they were trying to do wasn’t so repulsively nasty.
ELSEWHERE: The military might go ahead and get rid of “don’t ask don’t tell” ahead of Congress. Yes, that’s the US military, less idiotically conservative than US politicians.
