Another Day of Disappointment

Today the California Supreme court rendered its decision regarding the constitutional process of Proposition 8. The justices determined that the 18,000 couples who got married in the narrow window of time from June 2008 to November 2008 were still legally married, but that after Proposition 8, gay and lesbian couples can not get married. It was a great disappointment to hear of this reversal of fortune - again. As a citizen who is a business leader, community activist and taxpayer, it is so frustrating to have the courts fail to protect my rights and uphold the rights of the majority. If the courts won't do it, who or what will? Clearly the LGBT community will have to move to more radical measures to be taken seriously and credibly.
