In a breathtaking exercise in ill-natured illogic, a divided Ninth Circuit ruled 2–1 that because Prop 8 does not take away civil-union benefits for same-sex couples, it’s an unconstitutional exercise in irrational animus towards gay people.I don't even know what "ill-natured illogic" is. I'm sure it's not good.
Back the hell up!
It hasn't been that long ago! The reason that ProtectCalifornia/NOM did not persuade the Ninth Circuit might have something to do with the fact that they failed to offer a meaningful case
The Court of Appeals doesn't solicit evidence and they didn't hear testimony. They work with the record that is. If appealed, the Supreme Court is going to do the same thing
I don't have a crystal ball but I do have a good memory. The simple fact is that we had the better case and we had the better lawyers. "They" can feign all the outrage that they want (and will). That will not alter the very basic fact that there does not exist a coherent secular argument in opposition to marriage equality.
