Supreme Shame

And so the US Supreme Court heard arguments today in regard to California's proposition 8. Missing was any suggestion from even the liberal justices that gays and lesbians are entitled to equal protection under the law, and they are entitled to due process. Instead the discussion focused on legal technicalities. Shame on the nine justices...all of them. There is no Thrugood Marshall, no justice who has personal experience with discrimination (Uncle Clarence Thomas apparently included, if you look at his history on the court.) So tomorrow we will see what these great jurists have to say about another clearly unconstitutional anti-gay law, DOMA. And in June we will know their decisions. I'm not particularly optimistic after reading analyses of the proceedings today.
