California Proposition Eight Under Legal Attack Again

This is going to be the norm, folks. California’s Proposition Eight is going to be attacked by homosexual activist again and again and again and again…well, you get the picture. They are not going to give up. They know the only way they can force the sinful lifestyle choice of homosexuality on everyone is through the liberal courts. So don’t look for this to ever go away.

George W. Bush’s former solicitor general, Ted Olson, has filed the lawsuit, which claims Prop. 8 — approved by 52 percent of voters in November 2008 — violates the due process and equal protection clauses of the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. “Creating a second class of citizens is discrimination plain and simple,” Olson stated at a May 27 press conference. “Proposition 8 denies people fundamental constitutional rights.”

“Because of the fact that the attorney general of that state, Jerry Brown, has essentially conceded in his view that there is a federal constitutional right to same-sex marriage,” [Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel] explains. “So the state’s not going to defend it — and if the state’s not going to defend it, then who will?”

Olson is a member of the Federalist Society, an organization of attorneys who promote an “originalist” interpretation of the Constitution. In an interview with, Liberty Counsel’s Matt Krause implies that Olson’s reputation as “somebody who stays true to the text of the Constitution and seems to be right on a lot of these issues” adds to conservatives’ concern about the lawsuit.
