The title of the post was California's Proposition 8 Decision on the Wrong Side of History.
The interesting point that is brought up has to do with how after all this time after the ratification of the Constitution we still as a people have a hard time fulfilling the spirit and vision of the document.
Specifically with the preamble:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
So with the passage of Proposition 8 in California, and the various states around the nation that do not allow same-sex marriage, are we saying that perhaps we aren't all equal? Are we saying that like the argument used against the black people years ago that they are equal but we (white people) are more equal?
By telling these people that because they are homosexual, they have less rights than those who are not?
These laws that are being passed, it seems to me, are giving the very loud message that homosexuals are exempt from liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
