I am reposting this from the blog Pam’s House Blend. This opinion from Alvin McEween is the best that I have seen thus far regarding yesterday’s decision on Prop 8:
Meanwhile, others such as the Family Research Council, Concerned Women for America, etc. have sent out the usual junk about “unelected judges,” “activist judges,” “redefinition of marriage,” and all of the other hyperbolic mess we have come to expect from them.
But here is my question to them, and it’s relatively simple.
Just where were these folks when the original trial was taking place last year? Why didn’t any of these folks testify as to why Prop 8 was needed? Remember, the pro-Prop 8 side could only find two witnesses and both did a poor job defending the law. One witness, David Blankenhorn, inadvertently made the case for the anti-Prop 8 side!
Where were Gallagher, Brian Brown, Peter Sprigg, Tony Perkins, or any of these other folks who put so much work in getting the law passed? Gallagher’s tweet alleges that seven million people voted for the law. However amongst those seven million, only two witnesses could be found?
Whom are they kidding?
