Our side has just submitted their rebuttal of the appeal. The response and more info are at the ever-helpful Prop8 trial tracker.
What can the Supreme Court mean when it says that our Constitution "neither knows nor tolerates classes among citizens," if a majority can so stigmatize a small, visible, and vulnerable minority and in the process cause such wrenching anguish? The American promise--and dream-- of equality surely means at a minimum that the government, before "drawing a line around" some segment of its citizenry and designating them unworthy of something as important and socially meaningful as the institution of marriage, must have a legitimate and factually tenable rationale for doing so. Proposition 8 fails even at this most basic level of scrutiny. It advances no legitimate purpose.
