Irony Alert: They faced off against each other in Gore v Bush. Now, they are teaming up to fight the hatred and the Prop 8 freaks. From the MercuryNews:
Two of the nation’s top litigators who opposed each other in the Bush v. Gore election challenge in 2000 have joined forces to seek federal court intervention in California’s gay marriage controversy.
Theodore B. Olson and David Boies have filed a U.S. District Court lawsuit on behalf of two gay men and two gay women, arguing that the California constitutional amendment eliminating the right of gay couples to marry violates the U.S. constitutional guarantee of equal protection and due process.
Olson said today that he hopes the case will wind up before the U.S. Supreme Court.
The lawsuit seeks a preliminary injunction against California’s Proposition 8 until the case is resolved.
It has to go all the way to SCOTUS. The haters and homophobes can’t win this..
Those words were uttered by the fucktard known as Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council. A real sweetheart group of Theocrats and religious wingnuts. It was said about Proposition 8 here in Cali, the gay marriage amendment they want to put into the Cali Consitution November 4th.
It just shows how sick and desperate these freaks are. It’s pathetic no? Check out these memorable quotes as well from a NYT writeup on the subject:
“This vote on whether we stop the gay-marriage juggernaut in California is Armageddon,” said Charles W. Colson, the founder of Prison Fellowship Ministries and an eminent evangelical voice, speaking to pastors in a video promoting Proposition 8. “We lose this, we are going to lose in a lot of other ways, including freedom of religion.”
“We’ve picked bad presidents before, and we’ve survived as a nation,” said Mr. Perkins, who has made two trips to California in the last six weeks. “But we will not survive if we lose the institution of marriage.”
Colson’s horseshit really chaps my ass. Its all bullshit and bravado for Christs sake. The world will not end, our society will not come crashing down around us, religion will not be outlawed and furthermore:
You hate-filled bags of batshit are disgusting in your self-consuming hatred. May you all rot in hell very soon.
