Scenes from the Prop 8 trial - history through different eyes

So many things happened today during the historic Supreme Court trial on Prop 8, I thought I would simply post links and allow you to pick on what you wanted to focus:  

Megyn Kelly To Maggie Gallagher: How Is Prop 8 Different From A Ban On Interracial Marriage? - Okay you know it gets weird when Fox News challenges your homophobia

 Fox News Contributors Say Marriage Equality Would Criminalize Christianity - There we go! THAT's the Fox News I know and despise.  

NOM #marriagemarch suporter defines 'Real Men' - Jeremy Hooper attended NOM's ridiculous rally. Apparently he is more of a sadist than I am. Check out this nauseating bit and look for more on his blog.  

VIDEO: Conservatives At Anti-Gay Marriage Rally Undercut One Of Their Primary Talking Points - Feel free to enjoy. I don't have the strength. 

 Mike Huckabee Threatens GOP: Support Marriage Equality And Evangelicals Will Form Third Party - Feel free to destroy yourselves. As long as I get a front row seat.

  Op-ed: The 6 Most Absurd Prop. 8 Briefs - Yes, the homophobes went brief crazy. 

 Attorney Arguing For Prop 8 Admits His Argument Sucks, Basically - Yes he did.

 NOM's 'Historic' Fail - And NOM's march sucked also.

 The 60 Best Signs Against DOMA And Prop 8 At The Supreme Court - Let's end this post with a bit of frivolity.

'Consensus - Supreme Court ruling MAY BE partial victory for gays' and other Tuesday midday news briefs

What a morning at the Supreme Court! Transcripts will be ready soon (and unfortunately, I will still be at work) so allow me to break down the possible, too-early to tell but folks are talking anyway consensus. While not an embracing of full marriage equality for the entire nation by the judges, it is also believed that Prop 8 may just stay invalidated. Even though I don't live in California, I would take that and love it:

Supreme Court Proposition 8 Case Arguments Cast Doubt On Gay Marriage Ban - If Prop 8 stays overturned, it may come down to an argument which NOM tried so hard to omit from everyone's mind - children in same-sex families. 

 The Proposition 8 oral argument - And a more detailed view from SCOTUSblog .

  Republicans Admit Intention To Sugarcoat Their Opposition To LGBT Equality - Meanwhile, Republicans are clueless as what to do so they are waiting.  

Concerned Women for America: Starbucks Discriminates Against Straight People by Supporting Gay Rights - Oh good grief!

Today is the day. Let's not stop

What will happen today and tomorrow at the Supreme Court and at rallies around the nation?

I don't know. I am hopeful that we will prevail. I believe that we will prevail. I have certainly prayed over it a few times. Yes I prayed. No one group owns the patent on prayer and I suspect that I am not the first lgbt who has prayed over a decision which will affect his/her life.

 But this I do know.

We have come a long way and we ain't stopping now, regardless of what happens. We must never stop until full equality is ours.
