Los Angeles Times'
editorial board calls on Judge Vaughn Walker to invalidate Proposition 8 and for the Supreme Court to end all bans on same-sex marriage.
Awaiting a decision on the federal case against Prop. 8, the
on Tuesday takes note of last week's federal decision that declared the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional. According to the
arguments used to defend both Prop. 8 and DOMA were weak, and there is no proof, simply a belief by some, that gay people make bad parents or that same-sex marriage discourages opposite-sex marriage.
"The lack of a solid justification for laws against same-sex marriage suggest that, like the sodomy law, they're based only on a traditional moral belief. That's why the Supreme Court should reject them."
