Prop 8: Day II

January 12, 2010

Some great coverage from Karen Ocamb.  Day 1 and Day 2 (part 1 and part 2).  The Courage Campaign’s recap is here.  The focus of today’s hearing was on the history of marriage with Harvard Professor Nancy Cott.

Also, Dustin Lance Black has a column up on Huffington Post on the trial:

    I’ve said this so many times before, but never has it seemed more appropriate than it does today. To many of us, this challenge sounds like debate and politics, tedium and hard work, but to the young people out there who are afraid, who tune in and hear that we have taken this bold new step, it will sound more like: “You are not less than. You have brothers and sisters, gay and straight, black and brown and white, thousands of us. And your struggle is our struggle, and your fight is our fight, and very soon, we promise you, you will be equal citizens, and you will be free.”

    I am always so impressed with Dustin Lance Black’s words. He touches my heart and, I think, if more people would hear his words, the world would change.
