There’s history in the making this week as a federal court in California begins its trial on the constitutionality of Proposition 8, passed in 2008. For those with time and inclination, the trial is scheduled for live broadcast to a number of federal courthouses. In the L.A. area, it’ll be at the Richard H. Chambers United States Courthouse, 125 South Grand Avenue, Pasadena, California, Courtroom Three, First Floor. Additional locations can be found here.
In anticipation of the trial, a number of articles have addressed the case for marriage equality this weekend. Here are links to “The Conservative Case for Gay Marriage,” in Newsweek and “A Risky Proposal,” in The New Yorker.
I’ve got a personal stake in this one, so will be watching attentively, and posting as resources become available. Cross your fingers, say a prayer, and read up on the issues so you can intelligently defend marriage equality.
