California Attorney General asks Courts to Reverse Prop 8

In a surprise move yesterday, California Attorney General, Jerry Brown ask the state Supreme Court to overturn the passage of Prop 8 in California.

He is taking stand against Prop 8. Jerry Brown acknowledges that the passage of Proposition 8 violates basic rights for everyone found in our state's Constitution. Taking away the rights of same-sex couples to marry is discrimination against a minority group.

"Proposition 8 must be invalidated because the amendment process cannot be used to extinguish fundamental constitutional rights without compelling justification" said Brown.

He will have a fight ahead of him though! Kenneth Starr (of Whitewater Fame) filed for the Yes on 8 campaign for the courts to uphold the passage of this discriminating proposition.

Tonight is LIGHT UP THE NIGHT! join us at Union Square in San Francisco at 5pm for Candlelight Vigil. Bring a Candle!
