SAN FRANCSICO -- Today a district court judge in San Francisco ruled that Prop 8, California's same sex marriage ban, was unconstitutional (Read the full decision here). The ban's been in effect since November 2008 when 52 percent of California's voters passed Prop. 8. The controversial law overturned the state's Supreme Court decision to legalize gay marriage. It's a victory, for sure. But it's also just the beginning of what's sure to be a long legal battle that puts love and desire on trial in a country that' has lots of angry and reactionary folks waiting to bust.
