We will overcome


"An individual's capacity to establish a loving and long-term committed relationship with another person and responsibly to care for and raise children does not depend on the individual's sexual orientation." Moreover, "the exclusion of same-sex couples from the designation of marriage clearly is not necessary in order to afford full protection to all of the rights and benefits that currently are enjoyed by married opposite-sex couples." -- California's chief justice, Ronald M. George


"...the reasons for denying gay and lesbian couples the right to marry that served as the "factual" basis for Proposition 8 are but pretexts for discrimination."


"Proposition 8 was explicitly designed to relegate hundreds of thousands of Californians to an inferior legal and social status."


"...fundamental civil rights must be available to all citizens, regardless of race, sexual orientation or other intrinsic human qualities."


LA times -- OPINION
A Colorado battle may offer a means of challenging California's same-sex marriage ban.
