Bending Towards Justice (or More Burt Bacharach)

This happened on August, 4, 2010.

From Judge Vaughn Walker's ruling on Perry v. Schwarzenegger:

"Proposition 8 fails to advance any rational basis in singling out gay men and lesbians for denial of a marriage license. Indeed, the evidence shows Proposition 8 does nothing more than enshrine in the California Constitution the notion that opposite- sex couples are superior to same-sex couples. Because California has no interest in discriminating against gay men and lesbians, and because Proposition 8 prevents California from fulfilling its constitutional obligation to provide marriages on an equal basis, the court concludes that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional."

Stephen Colbert came up with a plan to fight back.
