Equal RIghts Now!

A very important trial just started in San Francisco today.

The problem is that 52% of California voters voted in November 2008 to change the state’s constitution and outlaw same-sex marriage after it was legalized by the California Supreme Court. (It's not surprising that the majority is not willing to give the minority equal rights.) We must use the court system as our Founding Fathers intended; I hope the courts will give us equal rights!

Let's play a game of "what if": What if in the early 1960's the Civil Rights legislation would have been put to a popular vote instead of being pushed through congress by LBJ? Would the outcome have been any different?
