Defending Prop 8: Someone’s Got To Do It

Tom Fudge...I guess you're seeing something I'm not, because I still don't see where anyone is harmed by the term 'marriage' being used to refer to same sex couples. I see your point that that the Governor and AG are failing the voters when they don't defend Prop 8; though I don't agree with it, since they were elected to make choices and that's what they've legally done - and because Prop 8 was an opinion poll allowing tyrrany of the majority over the minority. But in any case, could you tell us who is harmed by using the term 'marriage' in legal documents, in reference to same sex couples? I ask because your position is that this issue is so urgent and momentous. Why do you think it is? Who is harmed by it? Thanks in advance for answering this question.

Defending Prop 8: Someone’s Got To Do It

Tom Fudge, you state, "If the court battle over gay marriage isn't a high priority, I don't know what is." Well, that's a melodramatic outlook based on.....what? No harm comes to anyone, and a great deal of good comes to many, if Prop 8 doesn't stand. You must not have been following its process through the courts up to now, if you don't understand that a great deal of money and effort has been put into arguing in it's favor, with no rational reason having emerged to support it. How, then, do you characterize it as a high priority? Or is it that the melodramatic cliche reveals your protesting too much?. While it stands, a great deal of harm is coming to many, as well as the fact of the majority voting down the rights of the minority continuing to stand. The tide of harm is maintained while Prop 8 stands, that is what is behind the decision by the Governor, AG, and incoming AG not to defend it. And rightly so.
