Prop. 8 is Unconstitutional.

Following up from yesterday, we get some good news here in Lotus land..

From the Judge's (a Bush appointee apparently) decision:

Proposition 8 fails to advance any rational basis in singling out gay men and lesbians for denial of a marriage license. Indeed, the evidence shows Proposition 8 does nothing more than enshrine in the California Constitution the notion that opposite-sex couples are superior to same-sex couples. Because California has no interest in discriminating against gay men and lesbians, and because Proposition 8 prevents California from fulfilling its constitutional obligation to provide marriages on an equal basis, the court concludes that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional.

Listen, I'm straight, and I don't give much of a damn what Adam and Steve do with their lives. They want to get married, fine. Have at it! What do I care?

How does it affect me again?

Oh yeah, that's right. Not at all.

Why is what I just said not the actual conservative position in all this?  Remember, individual liberty?  No?
