California Attorney General Jerry Brown last week made some alterations to Proposition 8, the proposed amendment that could ban same-sex marriage in the Golden State.
Rather than presenting the measure as a protective, it’s now prohibitive, reading, “[Prop 8] Changes California Constitution to eliminate right of same-sex couples to marry.” Well, this little linguistic shift isn’t sitting well with social conservatives, who are now trying to take Brown to court. Why? They think the new language with “prejudice voters against the initiative.”
So, when the right’s prejudice, it’s okay. When others could be- well, it’s reason enough to tie up the courts with illiberal, nonsensical lawsuits. God bless America.
