California Supreme Court to hear challenges to Prop 8

Given that both sides wanted the court to rule on this, it's not surprising. Here's the MyDD article.

It might be "better" in some sense if this were overturned at the ballot box rather than in court. It would deprive the right of their "judicial tyranny" arguments (never mind that the CA legislature already passed gay marriage, or that one of the important roles of the judiciary is to protect the rights of minorities from the will of the majority). But it's more important that Prop 8 get overturned as soon as possible, so that people can marry who they want to. I'm not going to ask someone to wait to insist on fair treatment.

In the meantime, we should prepare to repeal Prop 8 a the ballot box. You can sign this petition if you haven't already.
