Haters are going to hate. The Prop 8 supporters are trying their best to keep the hateful law alive.
They want to strike down Judge Walker's ruling because he's gay and he's has a MAN!
Here's the scoop:
Lawyers for Protect Marriage, the coalition of religious and conservative groups that sponsored Proposition 8, however, have not previously raised his sexual orientation as a legal issue.
Protect Marriage general counsel Andy Pugno said that changed when the judge this month told a group of courthouse reporters about his 10-year relationship. The issue is not that Walker is gay, but that his relationship status made him too similar to the same-sex couples who sued for the right to marry, Pugno said.They need to quit this show and stay out of Judge Walker's private business. I'm sure he was fair and true to the case. Their silly attempts to stop the inevitable is tired and desperate.
"We deeply regret the necessity of this motion. But if the courts are to require others to follow the law, the courts themselves must do so as well," Pugno added.
Walker said at the time that he did not consider his sexual orientation to be any more a reason for recusal than another judge's race or gender normally would be.
Let justice be, haters.
