More Reasons Why Proposition 8 Is Illegal

A law professor from Pennsylvania agrees with me that Proposition 8 is illegal.

His basic point is the same as mine: It doesn't matter what you think of gay marriage, if Proposition 8 is allowed to stand, it essentially nullifies the equal protection guarantee in California's constitution for everyone. It establishes the precedent that any minority: women, blacks, Hispanics, Mormons - can be specifically targeted to have their rights taken away by a simple majority. He provides pretty solid reasoning as to why this is so.
