Prop H8 Update: A New Strategy

The backers of Proposition 8 are at it again. They are now trying to get Judge Walker’s decision to overturn Prop 8 overturned because, get this, the judge is gay and in a 10 year relationship. This is really shaky grounds. If Judge Ware buys into this, the state of the judicial system could be changed forever.

If Judge Walker’s decision is overturned, what will be next? Will the courts have to overturn any ruling from a female judge in regards to female issues? What about a black judge presiding over racial issues? A Hispanic judge and immigration? Where would this end?
