It is the attorney general’s duty to defend the state’s laws, and after gay rights activists filed legal challenges to Proposition 8, which amended the Constitution to ban same-sex marriage, Brown said he planned to defend the proposition as enacted by the people of California.
But after studying the matter, Brown concluded that “Proposition 8 must be invalidated because the amendment process cannot be used to extinguish fundamental constitutional rights without compelling justification.”
A truly uplifting development.
I and my spouse aren’t harming or sullying anyone else’s marriage. Don’t think same-sex marriage is a good idea? Fine. Don’t have one. Problem solved. Worry about your own eternal soul, and keep your judgmental meddling out of my business.
