A voice of reason..

Court invalidates California's ban on same-sex marriage, March 14, 2005, San Fransisco Chronicle

Reprinted without permission:

In his 27-page decision, Kramer - an appointee of former Gov. Pete Wilson, a Republican - said the state's ban on same-sex marriage violates "the basic human right to marry the person of one's choice," and has no rational justification.

Rejecting California Attorney General Bill Lockyer's argument that California is entitled to maintain the traditional definition of marriage, Kramer said the same explanation was offered for the state's ban on interracial marriage, which was struck down by the state Supreme Court in 1948.

Phyllis Lyon and Del Martin, lesbian activists, celebrate their marriage ceremony.
